The tomato is used for storage, and the strawberry is filled with an abrasive. You can clean and sharpen your pins and needles by poking the strawberry.

According to folklore, placing a tomato on the mantle of a new home guaranteed prosperity and repelled evil spirits. If tomatoes were out of season, families improvised by using a round ball of red fabric filled with sand or sawdust. The good-luck symbol also served a practical purpose - a place to store pins.
