Diabetes Treatment - TALONG-SIAM

Of interest to diabetics and those involved with their treatment is this tomato relative from the Far East, Solanum sanitwongse. It has been used for generations in Siam, where it apparently originated, and in Thailand and the Philippines

In these countries, particularly Siam, diabetes is fairly prevalent, and it is claimed that consumption of the small fruit of Talong-Siam rapidly reduces urine sugar level, and once reduced, a small amount daily included in the diet can keep sugar down. Many people apparently consume a few fruit a day to prevent the initial onset of the disease, probably often in cases where diabetes might be inherited

We make no claims in respect of this treatment

The plant is a small shrub reaching over 1 metre in height, with ovate leaves 9 x 8 cm. and bluish flowers in racemes. The fruit ripens yellow-orange, is round and only about 1cm. diameter

Cultivation initially is just like tomato, but being a "USDA zone 10" tropical plant a warm greenhouse is essential to overwinter it in European and other cooler climates. A minimum temperature of about 15 deg°C. should be provided

Germination guide for Solanum sanitwongsei

These notes are a general guide, it is recommended to check specialist literature for some of the more unusual seeds in our lists.
Seed Germination Theory and Practice by Professor Norman C. Deno
Some knowledge about growing from seed is necessary to germinate even the easiest seeds. Most seeds require humidity to germinate, even desert plants like Welwitschia mirabilis require that their growing medium remains moist until germination.

Most seeds require oxygen to germinate, if buried too deep in their growing medium, or if the medium is too wet, the seeds may not get the oxygen they require.
Some seeds need to be in the light (surface sown) or in the dark (sown deep enough to receive little or no light) to germinate. A rule of thumb is to cover the seeds their own width deep in the growing medium, but some seeds prefer to be sown much deeper, and some fairly large seeds like to be surface sown (or higher).
Many seeds germinate best at certain temperatures, some will germinate at a comparatively wide range of temperatures, yet others need fluctuating temperatures.
Almost all seeds are waiting in a dormant state for some outside stimulus to break their dormancy, some just need sufficiently high ambiant humidity, others need scarification, vernalization or to be passed through the intestines of an animal.

Solanum sanitwongsei seeds will usually germinate in 5 days, if conditions are favourable.
Sow Solanum sanitwongsei seeds about 2mm deep in a sandy, fibrous compost seed sowing mix at about 25°C.

Treat as Tomato in the early stages, - plants need to be kept a bit warmer later
