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
