So here is the deal. I have a friend who was deployed in afghanistan. He was able to get ahold of some seeds from a grower there who does his growing at about an 11-14000 foot elevation. he was told that the seeds were for high altitude growing and pure afghani/pakistani genetics. I was blessed with 7 seeds because my buddy knows me as a dabbler in breeding
I am really interested in hearing from ayone who may have grown similar genetics. Since it is pure indica and bred for high altitude growing i am guessing that it is a fast finisher and hardy.Would love to cross it with a kush hybrid and see what kind of phenotypes i could uncover.
Just got the seeds and excited to have a true landrace indica. keeping male pollen for future ect.
Oh was told that the smoke wasnt fantastic but was potent
if it was me, i'd try to get a male that shows that same potency u talk about in its progeny from your afgans, and then blast that pollen on a very very tasty female. like a Plushberry, an Apollo11, a C99, Sour Diesel, GDP, etc. just something that you think tastes awesome.
I agree with J Cashman I'd be on the hunt for a male too, only I'd wanna grow em out first. ( not all I'd keep 2 stashed just in case) but ultimately I'd go "both ways" seed a female and use the male pollen on the kush hybrid see what I get & build from there. I must say congrats homie I've dreamed about visiting those regions (Afghan/Pakistan) & getting my hands on the PURE.
I doubt it is a fast finisher. I have grown out 2 landrace Afghans or Pakistani plants and they went 90 days in flower. Maple Leaf Indica from Sensi and Pakistani Valley Kush by World of seeds.
if hes breeding, he'll have to grow and clone them first anyways to see how the males effect the progeny. it's really the only way to tell how a male will effect the desired females. grow the males, clone the males, flower the clones, blast desired females (clones, so that you can use the same mother again if needed), those seeds will be your F1s. from there, grow out and flower some of the F1s (again, take clones), when all the F1s are finished flowering, smoke them. then you can see how the different males effected each female clone, as well as search for the various phenos that may exist within each individual cross. select your favorite and keep it.

personaly i would let them all seed then sellect from the seeds it may take an extra harvest but it would be worth it.
7 seeds aint much realy .
First open pollinate and get a lifetime supply. Second be generous. Third, mix the best with everything good you can find!
