Highland Lao Regular Seeds
by The Real Seed CompanyBuy / More Info
From the breeder:
Highland Lao is a pure Lao-Thai land-race strain which were produced in the mountainous Bolikhamsai Province of central Laos. Crackdowns and raids historically visited upon the lowland cultivation areas bordering the Mekong and the north-eastern Thai province of Issan drove commercial production into these upland areas.
Growing at a latitude of 18° north plants such as these take a good six months before they are mature and are ready for harvest. Cultivation practices in Laos mean that the buds are not heavily seeded if at all. Plants are tall growing between 200 - 400 cm. and have long thin leaves. The growers in this part of Laos plant either in June/July for December/January harvests or in September/October for harvest in February to March.
