Oral History

Submitted by Robert C. Clarke A classic Greek heirloom collected from a farming family in Kalamata region 15 years ago. This line had been cultivated in their village for more than 30 years, though cultivation there has ceased due to enforcement pressure, and the village is now abandoned. ‘Kalamata Red’ was a famous underground brand during the ’70s and ’80s. Red colouration is a trait of some plants in this line, particularly due to cold conditions. Other phenotypes are light green. Euphoric, creative, and ‘psychedelic’ effects are what this strain is renowned for. There are various theories as to the origin of these domesticates, none of which can yet be verified. Likely origins include the wider Balkans and Eastern Mediterranean region. Plants have relatively low requirements for feeding. Resistance to pests, mold, and drought/heat is excellent.
