  Breeder's Description - 'New York City Diesel'
The N.Y.C Diesel has its roots in the Big Apple, a friend brought the seeds and said that it was the best pot he ever smoked, he had dreads down to the ground so I believed him. This Cannabis tastes and smells like Ripe Red Grapefruits, once you touch the fresh buds you can't smell the other strains in your room or garden.

N.Y.C Diesel will leave you an Exotic Taste, an Exotic Smell and an Exotic High.

NYCD is a cross of a Mexican Sativa and an Afghani. I germed 4 seeds and got 2 nice females. These plants are a breeze to grow. They do get a little top heavy and may require some staking as one of mine did. This is an excellent yeilding strain. The buds have a Sativa look but they are huge and dens ...continued

My baby's momma was raised in the swamplands to be a hearty & vigorous grower. She apparently passed these traits onto my little girl. While I witnessed the Diesel in varying degrees of indica/sativa mix, I chose the Indica dom to be mine. Out of the 10 beans germed, all 10 popped with only 2 males. ...continued

The NYCD that we have used for the last two years is one GORGEOUS lady!!!!

The odor is pretty out of control, so BE PREPARED. The smell is like that of lemoney and fuely... As it should be! This particular pheno also has some skunkiness to the odor as well.

Another benefit of this particular

I had three seeds, 2 sprouted and both were female. Growth was very slow, but plants were very strong, resisted heat well. Vegged for about 4 weeks total starting from seed. Had two phenotypes

First pheno: Yielded way less , pieces were smaller and tighter, didnt start to spiral or as I like to call it "Nipple". Plant was a lighter green, and was more sensitive than the other. End result tasted amazing.

Pheno #2: Very stong beautiful uniform plant. Dark green leaves, very resistant to heat and pests, towards the end the buds got so heavy that they were all leaning over. Very spirally buds, beautiful to look at and to smell. While it was on the plant I thought to myself "This is the one!"

End result: Buds were much looser than expected, really didnt seem like they would of been from looking at the plant. Also dried out alot darker than I thought. still tasted ok, but a little dry I found. Im going to try 1 maybe 2 plants next time under the same wattage (400). It was still a pleasure to grow and smoke.

Had 4 plants under 400 watts. My other strain (Jack) was way taller than the Diesel so the lights had to be a little higher than I liked it to be for them.
Fed them Ionic Grow in Veg, and Ionic Bloom and Boost for flower. towards the end I was watering just about 1 litre every day in an 8 inch pot. Tried to fertlize the least possible.
