Seeds of Africa - Malawi Gold

Aka: Chamba

Malawi Gold is harvested exclusively in the Northern region of Malawi, on aplateau at the altitude of around 4000ft. This generally subtropical region sees little to no rain for 6 months of the year with the rainy season from November through to April. These hot and humid conditions means that Malawi Gold has developed superior resistance to mould and can adapt to almost any environment, making her a very hardy and easily cultivated plant. The area of this world-famous Sativa is home to all manner of animals including "Africa's big five" and also many species of fish, reptile, insect and mammal species that are found nowhere else on Earth. Large crocodiles, insects, monkeys and birds all inhabit the area close to where Malawi Gold is found growing.

The plants grow strong and tall with lots of branching and the smell is distinctly of exotic pineapple/lemon mingled with spicy incense. The buds are king sized, super-resinous, and are a deep gold, almost Amber colour. The plant is considered internationally as one of Africa’s best Sativas and is one of Malawi's 3 biggest exports. The area in which it grows is inhabited by the Chewa people who specialise in fishing, farming and cattle and the locals traditionally wrap the bud in a banana leaf to cure. This process enhances and sweet pineapple/lemon flavour, and is known as the famous "Malawi cob". There are 2 large clans that make up the Chewa people: the Phiri and the Banda. The Phiri are linked to kings and an aristocratic heritage and the Banda with healers and mystics who were most likely the main advocates of utilising this sacred plants medical and trance like capabilities. It is consumed locally by smoking in pipes but also papers where available and the leaf is used as infusions for remedies, ceremonial use and as part of everyday life. The Chewa say that the seeds we acquire from this particular lineage are from plants that have grown in the area for as long as they can remember and that they always produce heavy results harbouring an intense psychoactive high.

Topping out at 15 feet, this is a beast of a breed! A thick tree filled with wispy feathery leafs and beautiful flowers reaching to heaven. Maintaining a breeding seed stock for future generations and breeding with Zamal of La Reunion Island (taller at 20+ feet with a broader leaf) for next seasons "Zamalawi". Timeline: Male (mid July), Female (early August) and Finish (early October).
