Purple #1® is the world famous classic original Purple variety that dates back to the early 1980’s and has been treasured for it’s uniquely beautiful purple colourings. Used extensively by other seedbanks for breeding, our original Purple #1® plant is a 50:50 Sativa/Indica mix. The Indica parentage comes from a very special Purple Afghani which was carefully crossed in Holland with some top Indica and Sativa strains to create a strong outdoor plant that is fully adapted to the Dutch climate.
The calyx’s turn purple quickly as flowering begins and the buds are complemented by sweet and sticky small purple leaves that grow amongst the resin soaked purple buds. Purple #1® gets typically 1.5m - 2.5m tall, it is for outdoors / greenhouse only and is an early finisher. The fan leaves are often Sativa-like in appearance and show amazing purple colours.
This variety has had it’s own dedicated fanbase for several decades and remains a popular and beautifully distinctive strain some 30 years after it was first released. Purple #1® gives a sticky, fruity purple-streaked product. It has a somewhat rough, yet subtle, aroma.
A great choice for those seeking a fast-finishing tough outdoor variety.
