  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.

Veg stage:


Germination was 5/5. 4/5 was the female to male ratio. I had to different phenos one that seemed more indica dom. and one that was very sativa dom. I choose to keep them both. Even though after blooming them I prefer the Sativa dom. Pheno.The fastest veging strain I have ever grown. It even smells in veg. . The vigor is ridiculous. It is they most healthy plant I have ever seen Veg. next to only the Afghan delight and Free Tibet. In 5-6 weeks you should have a great plant that should yield well. I could not be more happy with this plant in veg.

Bloom Stage:

People say good things come to those who wait. Growing many Soma strains you will learn that. The NYCD is no different . It is easily a 10-11 week strain. Depending on phenotype even longer. I choose to use the Sativa dom pheno as my mother. It is very strong and vigorous. The nugs are HUGE. You will need to support the plant due to the weight of the nugs. It yields 5-6 ounces (no co2) on a nice size 4-5 foot plant. Becareful to give it space it grows decieveingly fast. If smell is a issue might want to becareful, because this strain smells. The smell is odd though smells real sour not real dank smelling.

Final Assessment:

The taste is super top notch. This was one of the many high points of this weed. Smooth and sour/tangerine taste. It is quite unique. The Smell of NYCD was the best smelling weed I have every smelt. Wonderful smell of sour Tangerines. Like a sour tropical candy. It looked very good as well. Sugar coated nuggets. Very nice looking stuff. The High is very intense and strong. One of my favorites and will always have a place in my garden. The NYCD is one of the best strains I have ever grown. Many props go out to Soma for his stellar genetics. The yield of the plant when grown fully mature is very good 5-6 ounces (no co2). The Buds and smoke are top quality. I recommend this strain highly.

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 c
