Best strains to breed with SA Kwazulu - Besides Durban

Good morning fellow growers. :coffee: i hope everyone’s in good health and spirits

The title is pretty self explanatory and I am looking for good strain suggestions to breed with simi-tall, tight node dark thin leafed sativa from South Africa that doesnt mind heavy feeds.

All suggestions will be taken seriously and I will do research to decide the best option. My research can take up to a week or more to conclude so have a bit of patience and I’ll let everyone know what I decide to go with based on your knowledge.

So let me know what you think and have some fun by using your imgination to help create something new unique and useful.

there was another strain from Kwa zulu besides durban? I am asking because Kwa zulu is where durban is from

I think the durban has a more of a Hindu lineage, so let’s stay away from the Himalayas. But again I will seriously consider every suggestion made…

I spent 11 years there everything from that area was same: thin budded sativa that the women would (first slap their hand under their armpit to gather sweat then roll it to a thin pencil bit like a thai stick minus the stick) and then pack it in paper roll.

they wouldn’t bother doing that if the buds were nice and tight i think

So with that in mind. I curiously must ask what do you smoke during your 11 years in South Africa or what did you find was the best quality ( Non imported of course just SA heirloom or landrace varieties. )

durban or malawi were best some of the swazi stuff could also be potent

Mind you we are talking about 1986-1991 before the duch strains ruined the landraces

I like the structure on these and i would prefer them not to stretch anymore then they already will these have a medium amount of branching. That tight node structure can be useful bred into very wide node phenos.

there is also Pondoland which was known as Transkei weed back then. it was the basic weed that was always available but never really preferred

Ive heard of it but don’t know much about it besides that it is a African varietal.


This is the lankier of the two. But thinner leafs, branching is a bit better. And more cold resistance.

Some Thai is the classic answer, in that vein, I’d think about Golden tiger (Thai/ Malawi).
Another option might be Bangi Haze (Congolese/Nepalese hybrid).

Lots of options, have a look at Ace seeds and see if anything sparks an interest.
