Smoke Report

Smell:
Strong, smell reminds of Citrus fruits, like Mandarin or Grapefruit, with a hit of sweetness to it.

Taste:
Taste like classic Holland hybrid weed, but carries some of the aromas that i described above.

Potency:
Green phenos slightly, but noticeable stronger, than the deep purple one.
I have low tolerance on weed, even that i smoke homegrown all these years.

Potency would rate it 6-7 out of 10. Heavier smokers might rate it less.

High:
Excellent for my taste, high quality. Actually is exactly what i was searching for few years: a strain that
is NOT gonna end your day, make you heavy to move and do any kind of work.

The Deep Purple pheno is really awesome. Can smoke at mornings and still have energy and clear mind to do the daily stuff without any couchlock effect or cloudy effect. The high is not overpowering and lets your brain function very clear, almost like you drunk a coffee.

The Green phenos are slightly stronger so they are not so ideal for starting the day.
High lasts 1-1.5hours for sure.


Would definitely grow Red Mandarine again to have a good daytime/evening smoke.
For later at night, i find my self searching for something stronger.



Total weight was 167g, good cleaned, without many branches, but the bud still had some moisture.
Im happy with the weight but
The big problem ended up being the popcorn quantity. 60%-70% of the weed is low quality popcorn, really messed it up with overveg.
Should have veg them less and with less branches... OR just put them under 600w hps and bigger tent right away when flowering started.

Hey Crowmax, thanks for the report! Sounds interesting indeed What a shame that i didn't take some of these, having won a good amount of seeds. I ordered some Red hot cookies that have one parent in common, let's see...
About extra vegetation and pop corn buds... as soon is for your personal use honestly who cares ?!? putting apart the extra effort for the trimming (highly strain dependent), i don't see any major problem. IF you loose some weight, i think is not a huge %
Happy smokes

Hi Sweet gang

The competition prices just arrived! Have to decide which will sprout first now...



Had the time to play with a nice camera and software these last weeks

Took some red mandarine budshots and macros






These last 2 photos are actually ~50 images, stacked together after shooting, to maximize depth of field.
Shooting macro 1:1 or higher magnifications, makes depth of field very thin, ending up having only few millimeters in focus, sometimes only a few trichomes are focused when magnification ratio goes up. (see for example the first photos)

Still learning the software, it has room for making the photos look better than below, but here are the first tries with it.
