Selection #6 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.
With Selection #6, after selecting the female with a squat/bushy structure from Daman Village, Kandahar, we immediately turned our attention towards the polar opposite in terms of the structure i.e. Tall and upright. The #6 female was definitely a looker and she had a completely black fade on it’s leaves, accompanied with good yields of buds that reek of a musky-piney smell with a side of sweet berries.
