It is an impressive transition when you realise that The Flying Dutchmen started with one man 40 years ago, conducting some cannabis research for personal satisfaction.
Eddie, the founder of The Flying Dutchmen, may have had humble beginnings, but that all changed by 1984, when he opened a wholesale genetics business, cultivating new hybrids for the market with fellow breeder Skunkman.
Together, Eddie and Skunkman introduced the first Skunk#1 (available to buy at Seedsman) to the market and a host of other new strains.
To find individual parental stock, tens of thousands of each strain were grown out in greenhouses; the best were selected and preserved. These best plants were inbred until the strain was considered stable or pure breeding. Crosses between two traditional varieties are known as F1 hybrids.
You can buy Flying Dutchmen Seeds at Seedman with confidence and enjoy some of the classic strains that Eddie and Skunkman created over 30 years ago.
