Afgaan ’90 is a pure inbred Afghan line obtained in Amsterdam in 1990. Seeds have been made directly from the original 1990 stock. The strain shows the classic ‘maple leaf’ trait.
This heirloom strain and several landraces collected this year in the southern Afghan Hindu Kush (Nangarhar Province) are due at the sites soon.
Also incoming: three landraces from Peshawar District, northern Pakistan, plus a new accession direct from Yarkhun Valley in the Chitrali Hindu Kush.
