I looked in both of my SSSC catalogs (1987-88, 1989-90) and they did not offer a SWAZI strain. The only South African strain that they listed was a PineTown Durban Poison (M3). As for item # M5. It doesn’t exist in my catalogs. Their listings are M1 Napali, M2 Manilla Fillipino, M3 Durban, and M6 Indica-creeper hybrid. I then checked out my Original Seed Bank catalogs from the same time period.
Nevil offered a Swazi strain (pure) for the first time in Nov. of 1987. It is listed again in his 1988 catalog.
By 1989, Swazi (pure) is no longer being offered. (One Swazi hybrid that was introduced in 1988, is still listed in his 89 catalog, HashPlant/NL#1 X SWAZI). – Prince Caspian
