West Coast Sour Description:

  • Type: Sativa Dominant

  • Lineage: West Coast Sour #16. x West Coast Sour #13

    We use the classic “lineage” protocol with the parents listed in order of female first and male (or pollen donor) second.

  • Filial Generation: F2, IX

    This expresses the fillial generation of the cultivar. IX refers to In-cross which is used to categorize two close relatives that have been bred together. S1 is used for “selfed” plants in which we reverse a clone onto itself

  • PVI (Phenotypic Variation Index):  Low

    This is a classification system we have developed in order to provide cultivators information regarding the amount of phenotypic variation that should be expected. Simply put, this describes the uniformity or lack thereof. The PVI index is calculated with a formula using a variety of observed traits. Although the formula we developed outputs a quantitative number between 1 and 10, we are publishing the results in qualitative format. The qualitative parameters we are: Very Low, Low, Below Average, Average, Above Average, High.

  • Indoor Flower Time: 70-80 days

    This represents the total expected flowering time from the first day of light cycle adjustment to the flowering cycle. This parameter was developed for guidance on indoor cultivation only. For outdoor cultivation please see “Outdoor Harvest Date”.

  • Outdoor Harvest Date: Late Oct

    This represents the approximate harvest date. The actual ripening date can vary slightly throughout different climate zones and growing conditions.

  • Trellising Requirements:  Average to above average

  • Height/Stretch: High

    This is the term often used to describe the amount of growth that occurs after flowering has commenced.

  • Yield Index (per sf): High

    This is the yield you would expect relative to other varieties grown in the same conditions at the same time. We use the terms “below average, average , above average and high

  • Color: Green with beautiful variations of dark and light green

    Usually green or purple or both.

  • Nose: Sour, Fuel, Citrus, Skunk, Earth

    This category is subjective and not based on quantitative data. * the higher the PVI the more variation in aroma you should expect.

  • Tips from the grower: We’ve grown our fair share of diesel back in the day.  This is a very accurate representation of the original Sour that was super common on the West Coast back in 2005-2010. She’s a crazy stretcher and she’ll absolutely require trellising. Indoors, don’t let the tops get too close to the lights or get too hot otherwise she can forxtail on you.  Outdoors, the plants can get massive. Don’t expect to harvest much before late Oct, however, the plant is quite hardy and can take a fair amount of environment abuse

    Our grow team provides useful data to include in this section

  • Notes: Sour Diesel has been a notoriously difficult cultivar to breed with. The trademark gassy traits are recessive and hard to come by in most F1 outcrosses.  We have been hunting winners of winners of within this line in order to bring bac k the true nature of 2000’s Sour-D!
