Grown around the desert towns of Balkh, Mazar-i-Sharif and Sheberghan in the far north of Afghanistan, close to the modern borders of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. This Mazar-i-Sharif strain produces the legendary hashish known as "Shirak-i-Mazar" and "Milk of Mazar". The people of these regions are a patchwork of Turkic, Tajik, Afghan and Pashtun tribes, and the history of Mazar-i-Sharif strains is likely to be equally complex. In fertile and well-irrigated soils these vigorous giants are capable of reaching 4 metres in height or more, and will produce a similarly immense yield of intensely resinous flowers. Traditionally harvested in the first half of December with the onset of the brutal Central Asian winter, Mazar-i-Sharif plants will enjoy cold conditions, including snow, and will turn a deep blood red in low temperatures. Growers favour leaving harvest as late as possible, sometimes into early January. Sieved "Milk of Mazar" garda is very resinous and so can be hand-pressed to make charas; it has a distinctively pungent, sweet aroma and a dreamily mellow high. Over-indulgence produces a mind-warping, immobilising and narcotic effect.

Bit early for a review, but I can't resist - I'm looking out of the window here in hot central Europe at 'The Triffid', one of your Mazar seeds in full vegetative sprint to flowering - it's 2.50 metres high and still going up a centimetre or more a night (we're in long, long drought after a bad spring, so I'm watering it about 6 - 10 litres per 24 hours). We had the most awful spring in recent history here, forcing me to keep the seedlings under light for far longer than I wanted to. Everything was late - birds, bees, butterflies, fruit - and I'd lost hope of a decent crop. Four out of five Mazar seeds planted made it to seedling-plus - one just went yellow and keeled over even though everything was the same as its siblings. Two turned out male and have been banished to the forest, together with two Nepali females I grew from a couple of seeds I found in the lining of an old waistcoat..

Now, here's the reason for the rave review. This is not some rope plant with the only thing that's getting high being the top of it. It scents my whole yard really heavily and greets me home like a good dog. It is multi-branched at every level, a classic - I've even pressed some of its nine-leafed shade spreads, but I needed my biggest atlas to do it! In many, many years of casual (i.e. not commercial) growing I've never had a friend/plant like it. This one's got its roots in earth feeding on the seep-through from an ancient dungheap hext door. Its sisters are in big pots because my yard's north-south with high walls and I cross them into the direct light every day, so they're only two metre but bushy and smelly and wonderful.

They arrived well-packed, quickly and discretely - all the good things I always get from Shayana. More later. I've a feeling I'll be brushing up on my hash-making skills come autumn.


Very nice seeds:D
