Selection #7 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 Kandahar, 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.
For Selection #7, now that we had both q short and a tall selection from this farm, we chose a female with a balanced structure, which isn’t so tall, but doesn’t feature a squat structure either. However, the bigger incentive was the absolutely impeccable bud growth and a desirable bud to leaf ratio. There’s simply one long cola sticking out above the plant around 5 ft tall with fewer side branches at the very bottom of the main stalk. This female embodied a flush black color on both the buds and the leaves alike. Featured a very nutty, almond-like muffled smell with a strong Diesel background.
