Turmeric Health Benefits and Culinary Uses
The success of early farmers came from the recognition and preservation of both qualitatively and quantitatively aberrant forms that happened to possess characters valuable to agriculture. Obvious examples of qualitative aberrations are the free-threshing forms of cereals, and the retention of seed by plants that otherwise had an effective seed dispersal mechanism. Early farmers also recognised that the removal of flowers, and the prevention of seed formation, produced an increased yield of the vegetative parts of plants. This is because flowers and seeds are primary physiological sinks that take precedence over other plant parts. In some crops, aberrant forms have lost their flowering ability, often entirely. These sterile forms have been preserved by generations of farmers for centuries, even millennia. They include garlic, horse radish, turmeric, ginger, and yams.
The importance of ancient clones is that they provide proof of the durability of horizontal resistance. Such clones may date from centuries, even millennia, ago. They are common in figs (Ficus), olives Olea), date palms (Phoenix), citrus (Citrus), horseradish (Armoracea), garlic (Allium), ginger (Zingiber), turmeric (Curcuma), saffron (Crocus), rhubarb (Rheum), etc. Andromonoecious
This genus is native to S.E. Asia and is a member of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. The rhizomes provide a yellow dye, and a flavouring essential to all curry powders. It is one of those crops in which true seeds are not produced, and its ancient clones are a useful example of the durability of horizontal resistance. The wild progenitors are extinct. Various In India, any good cook makes her own curry powders, and there are as many recipes as there are good cooks. Most curry powders contain about 25 turmeric (Cucurma domestica), 25 coriander (Coriandrum sativum) seeds, and various amounts of cumin (Cuminum cyminum) seeds, cardamoms (Elettaria cardomomum), fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) seeds, chillies (Capsicum annum), ginger (Zingerber officinale), black pepper (Piper nigrum), and dill (Anethum graveolens) seeds.
Ancient clones in the tropics include black pepper (Piper nigrum) banana (Musa spp.) aroids (Colocasia, Zanthosoma, etc.) ginger (Zingerber officinale) and its relatives such as turmeric (Curcuma longa) pineapple (Ananas comosus) vanilla (Vanillaplanifolia) and yams (Disocorea spp.). All of these represent centuries of cultivation without crop protection
Crops whose wild progenitors have been harvested by ancient hunter-gatherers to extinction. The domesticated forms survived because farmers are always careful to preserve propagating material of their crops. But food gatherers are often careless about wild plants and, in the course of a few human generations, they would never notice the decline in numbers that was occurring because of their activities. Among ancient clones, this loss of wild progenitors has occurred with black pepper, garlic, ginger, olive, saffron, and turmeric. Among other crops, a loss of wild progenitors also occurred with apple, broad bean, cassava, chillies, green peas, onions, peanuts, soybean, sweet potato, tea, turmeric and yams . Extinction
