A study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of vitrification technique in cryopreserving of Solanum lasiocarpum seeds. The seeds were immersed in Plant Vitrification Solution 2 (PVS2) with 0.0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8 and 1.0M of sucrose concentrations for 0, 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes. Initial germination and moisture content of the seeds used were 51 % and 37.9% respectively. Vitrification solution with sucrose concentration of 0.6M exposed for 30 minutes gave the highest viability of 70% with 26% germination and 35.53 % moisture content Viability of the seeds decreased slightly after vitrification and stored in liquid nitrogen. Regression analysis showed that S. lasiocarpum seeds can be stored for 10 months and 2 weeks and 4 days after vitrification and kept in liquid nitrogen.
