Date Posted: 11/02/2010 Thread Title: Aloe vera  Posted By : Elizabeth Herley
Message: 

The bitterness of the aloe leaf is only in the thin layer of sap between the outer surface of the leaf and the gelatinous interior. If this is peeled off the inner part of the leaf, after washing with warm water, has a bland taste and can be eaten. It is high in fibre and high molecular weight polysaccharides.

I was told by a Maya curandera (natural healer) in Guatemala that aloe helps men avoid baldness, is good for the hair, etc., drink it in a tea or put the flesh in a salad of veg or fruit...is that good information?

I have worked on aloe in my PG studies. Basicallly aloe is propagted by vegetative means using suckers.so crop improvement seems difficult in this crop because new plant will be identical to the parent plant.but options are available like micropropagation i.e. tissue culture techniques,induced mutation through irradiation
