Carried by ‘Sau’ of one of the three Star Deities Fuk Luk Sau that represents longevity and said in Chinese mythology that the Goddess of the West ‘Hsieh Hwang Mu’ has a garden of peach trees in heaven that bloom and bear fruits once in every two thousand years, the Peach has long been regarded as a traditional symbol for good health, longevity, and immortality. Legend has it that the Eight Immortals will be invited by the Goddess of the West for a feast when her trees bear fruits, which is how they attained immortality. The most famous folk tale related to the peaches would probably be Journey to the West, where the Monkey God stole and ate the peaches of immortality from the garden of the Goddess of the West and attained immortality.
The Jade Peach Tree bears a deep symbolic meaning. Every part of this plant is believed to possess some good values. For instance, peach wood is said to be a strong defense against evil spirits, and many Taoist spiritual tools are made of peach wood such as amulets, swords, and seals.
When peach blossoms, it represents springtime and the Chinese believed it is the season-best for young couples to get married. That is why the peach is also a symbol of love, romance, and marriage. It is not surprising that the term ‘Peach blossoms luck’ in Chinese is used to refer to ‘love luck’, the luck to attract romance into one’s life.
