Durban Poison originally travelled to Holland from South Africa during the 1970s and was then a pure sativa strain. However, across the many generations that adapted to the outdoor conditions of northern Europe some indica genetics from an unknown source have succeeded in combining with it. This influence is displayed in some early, broad leaf growth although by the end of its life-cycle it will take on the appearance of a sativa strain with long buds and fine, narrow leaves.
Durban Poison thrives both indoors and outdoors even at the higher latitudes of northern Europe. It is a very mould and pest-resistant strain. When cultivated indoors flowering is finished in 8 - 9 weeks. Outdoors plants can grow to be very large reaching 3 meters in height before being ready to harvest in late September or very early October before the weather turns inclement. The structure, bud development and potent, clear, uplifting, energising high are all clearly sativa in style. Only the darker green leaves betray its small proportion of indica genetics. It has an appetising flavour of aniseed/liquorice with notes of clove.
