@PanchoVilla Thanks for that info. I just looked at the RSC page for Kerala and it's quite interesting. It seems that there are several varieties, some that finish earlier than others. For WW, Shanti must have selected early finishers (which RSC considers to be a less traditional variety), whereas the one used in Haze could have been more of a pure equatorial variety.
This is a classic South Indian ganja landrace renowned for its intensely positive and stimulating 'sativa' high. Keralan cultigens have played a crucial role in the creation of foundational modern hybrids such as Haze and White Widow.
The equatorial highland district of Idukki, where this landrace was collected, is Kerala's most respected centre of ganja cultivation.
This is a true tropical 'sativa', ranging between 2 and 4 metres tall, with characteristic bamboo-like leaflets. 'Creeper' and 'Christmas-tree' structures can be exhibited. Buds are loose and resinous with minty, peppery, and fruity aromas, yielding a pungent sweet smoke. The Kerala high is renowned for its energising positivity.
Regional planting is around June to July, with harvests from December to early February. But faster indivduals can be ready by late October to early November. Traditionally, farmers favoured a later harvest. The best plants show great potency and will have the characteristic elevating Kerala high.
