    Frank's Fave Weed

    first and foremost, let me tell you why i started growing weed in the first place.

    i am from the east coast.
    near a small town called New York City, maybe you've heard of it?

    i have made many trips uptown (harlem) to buy weed since i began smoking around 15-16 years old.
    i used to take the bus in before i could legally drive, then eventually drove myself. cabs, subway, whatever it took to get to 173rd ( biggest sacks i ever got)
    i went for one purpose and one purpose only, to cop the uptown haze.
    some may call it "piff" altho that term is thrown around too loosely these days.
    but i been burning this shit since the early to mid 90's
    best weed on the planet imo
    anybody who has ever smoked it will attest to that.

    one day i decided to grow my own (as most of us here do) with the sole purpose of finding something similar to the uptown.
    i have grown over 100 strains in my quest to no avail.
    grown tons from seed and just about every clone only strain i could find.
    i found some real killer strains in my day, but none that stacked up.
    then one day.............

    i got a cut of Mango Haze.
    a buddy found this cut from 1 pack of mango haze seeds from shanti.
    the rest is history.

    this is the CLOSEST thing to the uptown that i have ever grown (or tried from another grower)
    she is fire, she is all i need.
    if i could only grow one strain, it be this.
    it wouldnt even be a close race to be honest.
    a few heads have this cut and we all agree, it dont get much better.
    if you love a killer sat high, she is for you.
    if you are an indy head, im sorry for you.
    she is no 8 weeks strain.
    she goes at least 12 weeks, depending on if you like her a bit more stony.
    i feel she still is like a punch to the face at 12.
    but a straight to the moon soaring high.

    now ive grown all sorts of "elites"
    IMO this shits on any OG kush.
    craps on chem d too.
    not like they arent real special, but they cant touch this queen.

    take a look around these forums, i dont bullshit about trees.
    many know me and respect what i say.
    i say go and get these beans if they are around.
    if they arent around, wait for them, dont miss them!

    now for some pix........



























    last pix are from 11 weeks
    What strain blows Frank's mind???

        i thought you can find phenos that finish in 8-9 weeks like the ssh? and if so, are there some big yielders? i havent seen any pics of the mango that have dense big buds like ssh and there both supposed to be similar?

          nice intro and great pics, that mango haze sure does look killer. and 12 weeks for a soaring haze high don't sound that bad either...

          thanks for sharing!

              thanks for taking interest in my thread folks.

              the smell and taste of this lady are pure spicy haze, no mango whatsoever.
              this is a more sat dom pheno, with a lower flowering time than most pure sats.
              we all kno a tru haze can go almost a 1/2 a year in flower.
              im patient, but not 26 weeks patient

              this will be the best yield i have gotten from her yet.
              i averaged around 40 g's a run from her, well trained.
              but this run i have her pretty well dialed in (thank god)
              i hope to pull 3+ oz's from her
              sats can be difficult to grow for some and it took me time to somewhat igure them out.
              they feed alot less, most tend to overdue it .
              remember , less is more

              im sure you will find diff phenos in a pack, ive seen some finish faster, beefier.
              but i like the sat dom intensity of the high.
              thats why choosy franks choose shanti.

              ssh and mango are pretty much identical, i think one parent is diff for mango.
              maybe a sister mom for the mango. i forget, read the description.
              or maybe ill post it in the thread.

                I have always preferred Hazes myself as well. SSH is my favorite haze so far but I have not had the pleasure of trying the Mango Haze. Glad you were able to dial in the yield on her before you had to quit. Shanti knows his shit that is for sure.

                    Frank, that is one of the best thread opening posts. Ever.

                    You are not the first very well respected grower that I've heard put the MH way up above everything else. I wonder how many more I need to hear it from before I get a pack.

                    EDIT - Um I re-read ur post...

                      hi all you know i belive the mangohaze is very underated i have grown here since 2002 non stop i realy love this line so much so that if i realy had to pick one and only 1 line from my collection it would be her.

                      There is a big diffrence in the mangohaze to SSH in that the mangohaze has a clean sativa high were the ssh has an element of stone to its high.

                      I grew out test seeds as i was lucky inuf to be 1 of the 10 testers in 2002 being at the right place at the right times for once lol.

                      Now not one plant female plant came in under 16 weeks by memmory but most around 16 weeks and a few at around 17/18 weeks.

                      Now the suprise my 2 selected females i call queeny and other both took the longest 17/18 weeks now from clone they come in at 8 and 9 weeks of flower.

                      Yield is amazing best i got to date from a single plant has been just over 19 oz cured and trimed.

                      Queeny has more airy flowers were the other has more fuller flowers both smell of mango and both yield big now even queeny with more airy flowers after a cure will loos that airy flower look.

                      You can find 8 week finishing phinos but in all honesty a few more weeks dont matter when you going to harvest some very special meds.

                      To many growers dont take the time to re test phinos they run seed and just pick the most fast of the group i rember reading a few grow reports on the mangohaze from a few of the testers in 2002 that did not even finish the longer flowering phinos let alone re test each big mistake.

                      Frank good post.

                        Is there many differents releases for Mango Haze ?

                        I get the 2008 release and actually I have one under 600 W on flo. big fan leaves and probably NL#5 dominant and I'll love it for sure.

                            ok so now that we know there are definitely 8-9 week phenos of mh from clone there is just one more thing that i wanted to find out. how will the yield and the denseness of those phenos compare to the 8-9 week ssh phenos? if my main goal is finding the biggest yielding 9 week pheno out of mh and ssh, is it gonna matter what strain i pick or will they be pretty much the same?
