Haze was developed in California in the 1960's-70's by crossing some of the best tropical Sativas which had been imported during that period. This mythic Sativa, which has been the base for the breeding of the best hybrids for the past decades, was close to disappear in the 1980's from the breeding scene, due the introduction of the Skunk and Indica strains.
Oldtimer's Haze population has been preserved intact until today by Oldtimer, a British breeder, and then reproduced by our breeders using a wide variety of parental plants. This pure Haze still preserves the genetic diversity that many present Haze lines have already lost, and it is possible to find phenotypes ranging from the mythic and nearly extinct Purple Haze to the most common Green Haze phenotype, and of course intermediate combinations as well.
For outdoor growing, it requires a tropical or subtropical climate in order to reach its full potential. However, it can easily be grown within latitudes of 20º-37º in a warm and coastal climate. The use of a greenhouse is very helpful for its correct ripening in non tropical latitudes.
It requires low levels of nutrients, especially of nitrogen. For outdoor growing, it’s best to mix a good base of organic soil, rich in guano and worm casting, and then place the plants in a sunny place and leave them to grow at their own rhythm, almost without using fertilizers or stimulators.
Genetic analyses show that Oldtimer's Haze has a very rare genotype, of extremely low genetic variability, showing direct kinship mainly with old Colombian and Panamanian Sativa's. Due to its extreme stability, it is a very dominant plant in breeding projects, which shines again with all its vigour and original splendour when it is properly crossed with other strains, producing extraordinary hybrids with the mythical taste and effect that have made this Sativa world-famous.
Oldtimer’s Haze has an incalculable value for every preservationist, collector and breeder that is looking for a pure Haze population that still preserves the quality and original genetic diversity of this mythic Sativa hybrid.
