Kalamata red is closer to NLD cannabis varieties. You will find phenotypes with similar plant Structure(sativa dominancy), stable abundance of trichomes and penetrating hashy terpenes. They are plants with long internodal spacing which, in optimal condition, can reach up to 5 – 6 meters in height.
They show very high resistance to insects, mold and very hot climate and they don’t require heavy nutrients. It’s enough a rich organic soil for them to thrive. Kalamata red is an undomesticated sativa-looking plant with old school hash plant characteristics, earthy terpenes, loads of trichomes and a gorgeous, motivating,energetic high.
As with most landraces and heirloom strains expect a small percentage(below 5%) of plants that express intersex traits. The main aroma is an undefined, powerful and penetrating earthy and hashy smell and taste of lemon with woody undertones, all in harmony with each other. The best part is that the flavor lingers in your mouth and all the way down your throat , making the taste in your mouth more important than anything else. In terms of the high the dominant characteristics are creativity, euphoria and energy for the first two joints, and while up to that point it seems like a clear daytime sativa, for biking and drawing.
At the third and fourth joint you realize that apart from that first “blast” your head gets from the first “dimension” of the high to a whole new “dimension” that comes on softly but steadily, joint after joint. Your body becomes lighter and you get in a laid back mood for improvised fictional stories and music creations. The first generation seeds of Kalamata red were handpicked by our oldest member bio-grower and breeder “delicorganic” 15 years ago from a family that was living close to an isolated village, named Alagonia at Messinia, on 800 meters above sea leve. That family was growing and preserving this genetics for up to 25 years. Many members of this family have passed years in prison and now this village is almost abandoned.
The Kalamata Red is an easy and enjoyable plant to grow. They are vigorous and hardy, capable of taking some harsh treatment. They produce a variety of different heights and shapes but all with similar pungent scents from the stem rub. Pest resistant.
The stretch is manageable and what you would expect from the genetics. The structure of the flowers also presents some variety. Some being more compact but all sharing similar growth patterns and terpene profiles. The flowers are long and loosely structured, some expressions will need support toward the end of flowering.
You can expect smells of lime, pencil sharpenings, leather, soap, some pineapple and surely some others. The effects can vary slightly but the majority are instant and concentrated behind the eyes and in the mind. Extremely stimulating. To be used for creative hobbies, exercise etc. Thought provoking and introspective.
