    Acapulco Gold

    This is a Mexican heirloom that is called Acapulco Gold. it's been explained to me that this has been maintained and kept by a Mexican breeder and this was grown inside from those seeds obtained in Mexico. To my eye they posses some gnarly ancient looking features but I know there are brothers here who post on the IC boards with alot of experience about Mexicans. I have never tried any.

    So, I'm posting this here for those who are interested and would like to contribute anything and thoughts on how this heirloom looks. I have a friend who has the seed of these, I'm sure he'd value any input in regard to these plants.

    I will ask if there's any more photos of the AG.

      Hola mexicani-ar,
      Thanks for the contribution. Love those thin leaves on the Bodhi AGs. Here's another photo of the Acapulco Gold outdoors (not grown by myself).

        Cernunnos, the Acapulco Gold looks good. Hopefully, it has a good flowering structure and resin production.

            Acapulco Gold

            Snowhigh's Acapulco Gold, all pictures and plants grown by Snowcap. - Snowhigh's and Bodhi's Acapulco Gold look like the real deal to me. I smoked Acapulco Gold in 1972. I'm growing Copaltia Oaxacan, another variety from the Sierra Madre Sur mountains. Hopefully, I'll find a gold pheno-type.

            Snowhigh's pictures originally posted on Cannabiogen Club, thread "California Love".

            Snowhigh's Acapuclo Gold looks pure sativa based on the 18 degree latitude of the Guerrero region of Mexico ~ Sierra Madre Del Sur mountains. I'd guess flowering on a pure highland Acapulco Gold at 15 - 16 weeks, compared to 16 - 24 weeks for a pure Colombian like Punto Rojo.

              Reeferman AG cut

              Hey Satva, really looking forward to your updates on the Oaxaca Copalita, do you know anything about reeferman AG cut, I recently saw it on an old thread here on ic, does the cut still exist?

                  Acapuclo Gold - Reeferman

                  Does Reeferman's Acapulco Gold have good flowering structure and resin production? Looks leafy to me.

                  One AG grow report on Icmag looked awesome, but the grower posted a smoke report that said something like the high lacked strength. Chimera's 1973 Highland Guerrero x Blueberry is a strong dense high.

                  Copalita Oaxacan (CO) has a cleaner, clearer high, neither CO or HMBB are as strong or psycedelic as early 1970's Acapulco Gold.

                  2010 Copalita Oaxacan, mid-flowering from clone, and flowers from recent harvest.


                  Mexican pheno similar growth to Punto Rojo

                  Asymetrical branching pheno.

                    As far as I know those pictures are both from the same seed. I don't have anymore information than that at the moment. I didn't ask specifics about the Mexican breeder/s who hold these. It is a sensitive thing and they still wish to not be known.

                    Though my friend and contact maybe able to answer questions that are more specific about where the seeds came from etc

                    If you message me I'll help you with any questions if you want to know more.


                    Best vibes

                      Aye satva, that's it. Ideally, it's got some substance to it and it can hold it's own. Us sativa lovers will be in like flynn. These are said to be the real deal, time will tell. Though, I'm very optimistic about these AGs, I will be starting some soon along with some other Mexicans that will need to be grown and observed to see if they are the real thing and not hybridised.

                      Cheers mate

                        Will take your word on it, I never had Acapulco Gold. Of course you were newer to smoking and memories are sometimes not exact. I am guessing the smoke was more trippy but youth can not be fully taken out of the equation.

                        I have pictures of early 70's Guerrero plants and mexicani-ar has a plant that looks quite similar. This may be the real thing.

                        If you can finish your plants in the high altitude mountains without glass getting in the way, I could see you getting some of the original Mexican mountain effect.

                        I now have the hm x bb and the bohdi AG seeds. Hope to find some trippy effects there. Eskobar is coming out with a Guerrero soon, or I hope soon. Said to be strongest of the Mexicans he has.

                        I am gonna grow with white LED and finish with 10,000 K fluoros and uvb lizard cfl. I hope I can trick the plants into getting trippy like they do in the Sierra Madre.

                              Will have to keep an eye out for these, Eskobar definitely has a good reputation. I'm watching the Bodhi and BSC Acapulco Gold grows closely, as I'm holding beans from both, but never have the ability to run as many numbers or strains as I'd like in a given season.
