We selected a nice Durban female, continuing with the typical great vigour and fine sativa leafs and appearance. Differences with her sisters in the grow were it was a little bit easier to handle in height. Also more compact in the flower formation, with buds popping near the main steam.
The scents in flower time on the flowers were in the range of floral,anise and woody/carroty.
We find this Durban quite dominant in hybrids, so we continue to see clearly these traits within the Ciskei F1 and first backcross.
Goals in the hybrid come in the yield (improving the general medium production in the Durban mother ) and shortening flowering period. We find 11, up to 13 weekers in the F1, a week less in the BC1 version. Some more fruity scents can also be found via Ciskei influence.
We were surprised with some Durban hybrids giving a very racy and quick uplifting high (Durban influence),so, we recommend to softly try your buds at first. You will also enjoy a very pleasant active sativa high once the first hit has being controlled and you´re facing the moon.

Swazi is a ·bad girl·, we have enjoyed a lot working with her in the last years. Results have being nice, better than expected.
It is advisable to control the vigour and growth speed in this strain. Doing the entire grow on the 12/12 schedule and lowering some light hours in the last weeks of bloom are good options. We use little pots, repoting only if neccesary, once the flowering intense stretching has finished. Watering when the soil has been dry for a bit, prefering airy mediums.
Appearance is of nice slender sativa,with long petioles and leafs. General expression is plants forming a central colla together with some extra flowering branches that end up giving a good number of buds and yield. The scents and bouquet are in the mild floral and quite intense and appealing citric both lemon and orangy that can be found in the majority of plants, founding even more tropical fruity scents in the backcross.
Flowers are denser and weight a bit more in the this last BC1 version. Also size is lowered and final appearance is more compact and flowers fill in nicely most of the plant. Still the lemony smell is quite easy to notice, some also show a fruity-peach scent. It can be a nice one to select one bud plants in small pots to be grown directly 12/12 from clones.
10 to 13 weekers when flowering. Nice sativa effect,some are really potent but most can be well enjoyed and used for all day smoking. Good for making things, activities, talking and laughing with friends.

Strain: Double Congo
Strain Type: Regular
Developed by: African Herbman ( SA ), HdB ( IT ), aeritos ( SP )
The first line we had when thought on starting this Project was Congo Pointe Noire, an excellent sativa we´ve enjoyed all these years since HdB discover it and started to work with her.
We were very lucky some years after, to find another african enthusiast, located in South Africa: African Herbman. AH is a great person in close contact with the best ganja and lines of the Continent, improving and mantaining them. He always explained us the potential Congo Black had, we decided it was the perfect mach that could improve our Pointe Noire.
It took us a time to find the right male to be used to create the Congolese F1. Our selection was a vigorous, productive and very odorous male. He passed all our stress tests and has a strong firm sex with no herma traits. Descendancy finally give us the chance to see it was a good choice.
Congo Black adds a bigger resin layer in flower time. A good stretch be should expected when changing to 12/12 but it is true some will mantain more compact in structure and forming flowers.
Congolese essence remains in the classic fresh floral, carroty and fine woods scents. Ready to be cut in around 12-13 weeks.
We recommend curing the flowers some months and then be prepared to enjoy this classic sativa smoke : and african for the enthusiasts. Nice complete bouquet : fresh floral, incense, carroty and fine woods. Potent, clear and active sativa high you shouldnt miss.
