Selection #5 Daman Village, Kandahar (Primary crop)
Daman Village populations, without a doubt, were one of the most diverse looking crop we’ve ever ran into in Afghanistan. Even a small patch shows great phenotypic variation among the individuals, wherein plants could be seen expressing features from both end of the spectrum, be it the overall structure, leaf broadness, bud structure, smells etc. To start off, we were looking for plants with good vigor but with a short/stubby frame as much of the population in Kandhar, no matter where you go in this province, seems to be taller, like longer flowering hash plant varieties. Having a great amount of diversity in this population gave us a good chance to find those squat yet vigorous
plants from this particular farm at Daman Village in Kandahar.
In Afghan Selection #5, here’s what we found to be a near perfect embodiment for a short and squat, yet vigorous plant. While we did find a few other spectacular females, this one tops all of them, head and shoulders. Multiple tops on this plant emanating from its natural structure without any training. Colors weren’t as lucid as we would’ve liked, but that’s not as important as the other features on this
female, such as the beautiful compact buds, a decent leaf to bract ratio, and deep-seated funky aromas, ranging from astringent piney to diesel and spices. This profile also seems to be quite prevalent among this particular population.
