Classic Avalon grows very branchy and has a bushy structure. It is very hardy outdoors with strong/thick branches, and has good mold resistance. I spent decades selecting for outdoor vigor on the west coast of Vancouver Island(rainforest with extreme humidity levels). Indoor growers will be just as happy as outdoor growers.
Avalon was one of my first projects in Cannabis breeding that started in 1996/97. At that time of the first cross I was still a partner in Federation Seed Company. This cross was never released as I wanted to breed with it more before release to the public. The founding genetics for this cross was a male selected from a very popular west coast Afghani x Hashplant(1996 from the boys) crossed with a(1996)DJ Short Blueberry female selection. For several years this line was selectively backcrossed and then inbred outdoors to create a stabilized line that bred true. For the following 10 years we selectively bred this variety on the humid west coast of Vancouver Island outdoors. We always selected the most resinous, high yielding and mold resistant pheno-types. In the early 2000’s it became very popular all across northern climates because of its; fast flowering, mold resistance, large yields, and abundant resin production.
In 2009 we stopped selling the Avalon regular seeds to the public because we relocated to Europe and didn’t have the same climate conditions to create these seeds. Fortunately we kept these genetics in our private collection and are continuing to breed with them for the past few years. After 5 years back in Canada and with these genetics in our gardens again, we are proud to bring it back!
