Purple #1® is the world-famous classic original purple variety that dates back to the early 1980s and has been treasured for its uniquely beautiful purple colorings and great character. Used extensively by other seedbanks for breeding, this 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 in order to create a strong outdoor plant that is fully adapted to the Dutch climate. 

The calyxes 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® is typically 1.5–2.5 meters 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 colors. 

This variety has had its own dedicated fanbase for several decades and remains a popular and beautifully distinctive strain even 30 years after it was first released. Purple #1® gives a sticky, fruity purple-streaked ganja with a somewhat rough yet subtle aroma. A great choice for those seeking a fast-finishing tough outdoor variety with extra esthetic features such as striking purple buds.
