  Breeder's Description - 'Durban Poison'
Durban Poison is a F1 cross of a Sativa strain from a secret garden located just outside Durban, South Africa and a potent, early Dutch Skunk. This strain grows tall with huge leaves. Long, tight buds have a sweet earthy flavour that has a hint of anise. Famous for its trippy up high!

Planted in regular soil, in the ground, outdoors, south UK. Fed only twice with Tomato food at the start of flowering, watered only 2 or 3 times throughout the whole season.

Genetically, the Nirvana version is a Durban Poison crossed with Skunk#1 but they don't make that clear. Kulu seeds is also, Durban Poison crossed with Skunk#1 but that is actually labeled as that.

Some give an almost aniseedy smell and taste. Some turned blue! Mixed Indica/Sativa looking plant, due I suppose to it's crossing with Skunk#1, really large tight buds but skinny leaves, heavy resin production.

At maturity, even though topped at the 5th node, was well over 6ft. Wind can become a problem due to the plants size. In fact my last grow of Durban x Skunk was cut short by strong winds which snapped the stems maybe a week before perfection...even so, the plant is potent and sticky. Very tough, isn't succeptible to mould or pests.

A really sweet smoke and really benefits from a cure. I liken it to a fine wine!

One of only 2 plants (the other being Hollands Hoop) that I can guarantee for beginners and professionals alike, guaranteed a harvest in even the worst years! Fantastic!

I started them and stressed them quite a bit but they still grew very well. Out of 2 surviving plants both were female. Unfortunately they turned hermie early on in flowering. They had much greater potential and would have been much more potent if they didn't get pollinated.

The plant is suppose

Not as tall and lanky as I expected, lot'sa skunk in these. Super sticky and sweet buds, hard and compact, but patterned like a sativa. Garden grew to ~20inches but I flowered a little earlier than normal. Bud Blaster also helped control the height. They seemed to like it on the dry side, and su ...continued

100% germination. Got 2 nice females and 2 phenotypes. Both were quite easy to grow.

I heard this strain is a cross between durban poison and a Dutch Skunk. Well I think this was more on the skunky side than the other one.
This pheno came up quite unexpected. It was my smallest plant
