black congolese


Well-known member
Black congolese aka African black , I am working with a number of africans landraces from Congo , Malawi , Madagaskar , Mozambique , South Africa and a few others .

Out of 60 seeds we had 2 congo's show colour one smells like typical sandal wood the topic of these pictures smells like grapes .

The plants are being trimmed now so we have no idea of taste , I will have analytical results later today , I will up date .

very nice. what's going on with african threads these days. love it but none gets going really.

I hope you find many special plants and make seeds. don't forget me when you're sending them. where did you get them?


Very interesting plants, looking forward to smoke reports, Ive heard Congo strains usually have a very clear alert effect.
Are the Madagaskar typical sativa's?


Brand new oldschool
They don't have the classic african landrace structure, more like african hybrids. First reminds me to banghi congolese (purple pheno) seen here on ICMAG, probably a cross with an old african strain preserved in the Canary Islands for decades. What's the source of all those landrace strains (congo, malawi, madagaskar, mozambique...)? There were seedbanks that used to offer them years ago, it's great to see they are still around in some form. Hopefully they will come back to the community somehow.

Rinse, Madagaskar has crazy tropical strains, like Mauritius or Reunion, probably the same genepool related to South Indian and African strains and acclimatised to the volcanic soils and extreme rainy tropical conditions.

Yes.. this is what many thought reeferman was selling when they were advertised at 180 per pack of 10 seeds. Personally.. I think anyone who flushed $ down the toilet on these or that other hoax vietnamese being offered should get a refund plus an additional 500 dollars for emotional distress from Reeferman himself. What do you think Charles?
