The history says, in the 16th century, Germans already had a custom of decorating Christmas trees with real apples, nuts and other food.
Fruits and vegetables on Christmas tree symbolized the affluence in the coming New Year.
Cotton and glass ornaments replaced real foods on the holiday tree centuries later.

All these fruits, vegetables and mushrooms came from the end of the 1930s to the middle of the 1950s.
