Afrokush: Patience Will Reward You Well
Afrokush is a perfectly balanced hybrid. Its sativa and indica influences are exactly at a 1:1 ratio, and the breeding process involves some special plants too! A relatively new name in the cannabis world, Swazi Polokwane fuels the sativa side of the breeding project with some strong South African genes. From this plant, Afrokush gets a relatively compact size and fruity, lemony aromas. Pakistan Chitral Kush, on the other hand, is a vigorous indica landrace, which adds stability and potency to the mix.
Aroma, Flavour, and Effects of Afrokush: Rich and Complex Fragrance of Sweet Flowers
The aroma of Afrokush is a sweet floral mix that's heavily influenced by the lemony, acid notes of Swazi. The plant will ooze resin from its buds, which is great for hash production—characteristic of the Kush inheritance that the breeders have worked hard to maintain. The effects are more in line with the old-school sativas: perfect for daytime activities, such as writing, composing, painting or spring cleaning the house. Whichever task you have at hand, it will be a pleasure with the company of Afrokush.
Growing Afrokush: Worth the Wait
Afrokush is definitely not a fast-flowering cultivar. Ready about 75 days after germination, some plants could benefit from a flowering time as long as 80 days. But fret not! The rewards waiting for you at the end are incredible. The colour of Afrokush will put on quite the show in your grow tent or garden; reds and intense purple are highly common. Given the heavy sativa influence, the buds are airy and can develop foxtailing. However, this does not impact the quality of the flower whatsoever.
