This is an upgraded selection of the former valued Afghan Skunk. A 1997 improvement was made on its yield. The taste is softer than before. The Afghani (Mazar-i-Shariff) part is a very short christmas tree like plant, 100% Indica and very resinous. The F1-cross with Skunk #1 gives the variety a bigger yield and better taste. Very good 'up' high. As both parents are very consistent, the offspring is very consistent too.
Started with 10 seeds and all germinated and sprouted. Two sprouts didn?t make it. One just wasn't able to push out real leaves, it wanted to, but couldn't get it done... chop went the blade. The other grew but lagged behind.... chop went the blade. Of the 8 that were left 3 were female and 5 were male. This was nice since news of hermies with the Mazar was heard but none were seen. This is unquestionably indica in appearance and smell. Wide dull dark green leaves with smoother edges on the blade serrations. Two of the 3 females were somewhat similar in appearance during flower with the other doing it's own thing. They looked pretty much identical during veg growth. Differences showed in bud structure. The oddball had the braided city skyline look. I'll explain later. The other two grew tight compact buds with smaller calyxes. 2- First let me tell ya bout some weirdness. The plant grew leaves from so me of its leaf stems. Weird huh, anyway.
This plant suffered from shading of taller plants but did OK consid ering. It was kept mainly for how well it did through the shading since curiosity was peaked by its performance. This plant got thrown into the mix by accident and wasn't smoked by anyone that knew they were smoking it. It's a mystery plant u ntil grown from clone. 3- This bad boy girl grew a fat top bud and may have been the heaviest of the three if it didn?t suffer from some overcrowding vs. the top producer. This bad girl also had the heaviest covering of resin.
This has potential to be a producer except for the long flower period, which would need to be dealt with if you?re into speed.
Note: All of the plants were harvested in approximately 10 weeks but it could have been done earlier and probably should have been. So just figure a 9 weeker for now. 5- Yep this is the braided one and this is what was meant. The plant was trained so that the main stem was horizontal. Looking at the big bud from eye level gave you a city skyline look with the buds, which look like braided hair with the big calyxes. This plant also had a nice covering of resin and was the stronger of the 2 that were smoked. It was also the heaviest plant. The one possible problem with this plant is that it did sho w a male flower or two early in flowering but that was it. An eye was kept on it and it didn?t show another sign of male flowers until a few days before harvest. The late start of a male flower or two could very well have been due to leaving them to flower too long before chopping day.
Aroma: An earthy spicy thing with a skunk background. Not overpowering would probably require attention when packaging.
Buzz Above average. NL x Shiva hates this plant in this neck of the woods and for good reason. Mazar is an up and comer that could become the next couch lock champ when it's old enough to compete. Itsthat good now. This was stoner weed period but...
It was harvested much too late which could have caused this type of buzz. There seemed to be an edge to the buzz lurking so we shall see. If it wasn?t because of the late harvest there will b e so me KOs when others get to smoke th is chit.
Taste Distorted by feeding. It had a spicy taste to it that isn?t bad and could be a good one when given the right feeding schedule.
Yield Slightly above average with 5 better than that.
Comments: This is looking like one of those plants no one likes to smoke because it ends their day. It?s surprising that it took as long to finish with this strain, we?ll see what happens from clone. Buzz will probably improve with age and better growing conditions.
Curiosity is peaked about the type of buzz that will be had when the p lant is harvested on time. Except for 5 shading was a problem for this strain so yield is really up in the smoke right now. All and all so far so good since the buzz is making up for the long flower time.
