Twilight is one of Dutch Passions proven outdoor strains that growers have been loyal to for a combination of beautiful purple blooms, a genuine stony indica high and reliable growth. Twilight is a quite exceptionally beautiful purple variety, 100% indica with heavy yields and buds that can be 50cm long when grown well.
She is often sown outdoors after 15th May and is harvested at the end of September or in the 1st week in October after 7-8 weeks of flowering. Plants grow to 1-1.5m tall and have good yields. During autumn they undertake a beautiful purple transformation that you will want to sit and gaze at; these are quite special and handsome plants.
The taste is earthy with a strong and sour Afghani flavour. The high is uplifting, strong and skunky. It is a long lasting high that will normally be elevating but may also cause you to sit back and relax, and then sit back again.
Many of the repeat-growers of Twilight are medical users who say that this is particularly effective for arthritis or chronic pain. Recreational users of Twilight only recommend smoking this in the evening; otherwise it will wipe out the whole day!
Twilight is a reliable outdoor 100% Indica strain which has been popular for many years with medical and recreational growers.
A good yielder with a true Indica body stone and a smooth high, Twilight is also a variety that looks beautiful thanks to the purple colourations and long heavy buds. This a lady you will want to grow again and again, highly recommended for outdoor Indica fans.
Genetic background and history
One of the strong points of Dutch Passion is the seed bank’s wide selection of purple outdoor strains, no other seed bank offers so many high-quality purple varieties. The full-blooded indica Twilight (100% Afghan) is another highlight in this category. Its roots reach back to the early eighties.
At that time, Henk van Dalen got his hands on some imported Purple Afghan seeds and made a good breeding selection, also acclimatising them to the local conditions. The resulting variety Twilight was and is one of the world’s sturdiest commercial outdoor strains. Its purple colouration can become intensely dark, especially when the nights are continuously cold in the last weeks of flowering. Twilight is expected to finish at the end of September or in the first week of October, yielding a lot of fat purple indica buds.
The German Freak Brothers grew a female Twilight plant (from seed) in their 20 m2 greenhouse in 1999. It performed very well in the vegetative stage, producing a lot of typically dark green and broad indica leafs. Its growth pattern was like a christmas tree, and also in its dimensions, this Twilight plant reminded of a medium-sized christmas tree, reaching a height of 2.5 meters in the end.
The flowers were beautifully purple and resinous, building many large top and side colas. In contrast to some other varieties in the greenhouse, Twilight proved to be mold-resistant. At the end of September, it was time to harvest the plant. It yielded just under 400 grams. The buds smelled intensely spicy and basically gave that typical Afghan taste, complemented by a somewhat rough purple aroma.
This outdoor flavour was a very welcome naturally tasting alternative to indoor buds. The turn was as Afghan-like as expected, mainly effecting a strong body high, very physically relaxing and long-lasting.
