Barramulla is situated at the central-southern territories of Kashmir (indian occupied), and borders with Sophore, and Srinagar in South Kashmir. Barramulla Valley is famous for its vast apple orchards along with the famed varieties of cannabis that grows out here. Surprisingly, the famed varieties in Barramulla tend to flower a bit longer, however they grow taller, more vigorous, and yield a lot more than any other Kashmir variety from the Indian side.
The farmers at Baramulla have been farming and selecting these plants over many decades which has shaped a very homogenous looking population of a medium-long flowering heirloom variety that boasts floral, sweet, Jasmine flower-like aromas mixed with sweet and spicy undertones.
The Barramulla valley receives a fair share of monsoon rains and stays quite humid through July, August and September, however the plants are well adapted to the cold-wet to wet-warm conditions wherein they flower out without any apparent issues in the flowers or the resin quality.
When grown in outdoor settings the plant can grow very tall, up to 12 ft+ with aggressive side branching. Indoors, plants can be managed to a smaller height as well by training early in life. The flowering period ranges from 12 weeks to 14 weeks, which is slightly more than that of any other Kashmir varieties. The finished flowers carry beautiful and intense aromas of floral/Jasmine, to sweet and mixed spices in various ratios.
The yields can be above average and very rewarding depending on the growing style and conditions, but typically yields more than the other Kashmir varieties which notoriously yield very little, but are laced with layers of trichomes.
Barramulla expresses truly medium-long flowering hash plant expression, which is the epitome of domestication efforts by southern and central Kashmiri farmers.
