Honduras sativa

I will share a bit of info about the Honduras landrace sativa that we have been exploring lately.
The seeds were collected early this century in Honduras by the same person who shared with us the Guatemala.
He sent me seeds from both landraces many years ago Thanks friend!

The Guatemalan was/is a very interesting central american line and has been used at ACE since the early days of our company, mainly by komanche, who bred Tikal with her.
On the other hand, the old original Honduras seeds were still waiting intact inside the fridge and it was the moment to discover what they had to offer.

We started germinating all the the 20 original Honduras seeds we received, and surprisingly all germinated perfectly and with vigor, despite they were at least 15 years old.
The seedlings grew vigorously in small pots, quite uniformly and without mutations or undesirable healthy problems. After 2-3 weeks of life they were transplanted to their final 7 liter pots.

All the plants show the classic tall Xmas tree structure, with strong branching, typical of the sativas from this area of the world. The stems are relatively thick and strong, yet flexible. Leaves are big and thin, with a light green color. Some plants show interesting reddish pigmentation in the stems, they are also the stickiest in growing stage. There's no indica influence in the growing or flowering stage, so seems to be a true pure sativa landrace.

Clones are labelled and kept from all the different parental plants. After switch to 12/12 photoperiod, 15 plants were female and 5 male. We keep the best 3 males (2 reddish males and 1 green male) based on vigor, health, flowering response, aromas, resin, flowering structure, yield, etc .... The reddish males are the stickiest and strongest smelling. Once the male clones are rooted, the big males are removed from the flowering room to avoid the pollination of the females, so the different females can be evaluated later sinsemilla.

All the females grew very vigorously in their 3 first weeks of flowering. After 1 month of flowering the stretching stops, and the plants started to throw pistils and to define the budsites.
Around the 7th-8th week of flowering the females are already showing her big yielding potential, developing huge colas full of pistils and small ovaries, resins and aromas also start to develop at this stage of flowering. Classic american sativa aromas: sweet, earthy, woody and incensey.

After 14 weeks of flowering all the females (except one, a late flowering one) are maturing.
The yield in all of them is very high for a first generation pure landrace sativa being grown indoors. The colas are huge although not very dense.

The flowering structure reminds me a lot to the old mexican sativas i used to grow 20 years ago .... big buds, full of brownish/reddish pistils, small ovaries with not much resin, woody, incensey aromas that have some sweetness. This sativa from Honduras shares all these traits, but the Honduras has a peculiar organic 'foie gras' aroma, with green plant tones of geranium. Really strange aroma that i don't know yet how it's going to translate into the smoke.

All the females didn't show hermie traits during most of the flowering, but unfortunately 9 females at the end showed more or less 'bananas' in the last 2-3 weeks of flowering. Mainly in the lower branches, not many and they didn't pollinate anything, but all the hermies had to be discarded.

Fortunately, the best looking and best smelling females were firm. We still need to dry, cure and analyze them to confirm whether the line is worth or not.

Here are some pics of a few Honduras females, sorry for the quality of the pics, had no much time or conditions to make proper pics.
Hope you can get an overall idea of her flowering structure and traits ... hope the info is useful too.

Honduras female 5.

Tall, vigorous and high yielding female. Produces huge colas of medium density. Resin production medium-low. The ovaries turn a bit purple at the end of flowering (without cold temps). It has a more fresh, lemony aroma than her sisters but it also shares the woody, incensey and geranium aroma that seems to be common in the line.

Honduras female 7.

Tall, vigorous and high yielding female. Produces a huge main cola.
The ovaries turn a bit purple at the end of flowering (without cold temps). Intense and complex aromas: creamy, incensey and geranium, with a tone of 'flammable gas' that reminds me a bit the older purple panama phenos.

Honduras female 9.

This one was an interesting female with beautiful spiral pistils, her flowering structure reminds me a bit to some haze hybrids and some old colombian sativas.
Unfortunately, at the end it was a bit hermie, so it was discarded too.

Some of those have some frost to them that is visible. It's really not that exotic sati as don't produce trichs it's just that the trichs are way smaller. They look good!
