Green Gelato is slightly more indica than sativa and was bred by crossing Girl Scout Cookies Thin Mints pheno. with Sunset Sherbert. This has to be one of the very tastiest strains ever and forms part of what RQS term their "dessert cannabis strains" collection. Bred with exclusive Californian genetics and delivering very High THC and very high yields.
Green Gelato can be grown indoors and outdoors and responds superbly to a broad range of manipulations including, low stress training, SCRoG, topping, fimming etcetera to maximise production. Indoor plants grow to a height of between 80 - 120 cm. and producing between 500 - 700 gr/m2 in an 8 - 9 week period of flowering. Outdoors in soil plants will grow rather taller reaching a height of 150 - 200 cm. and yielding 800 gr/plant with norther hemisphere harvests in early October. RQS recommeds that whatever your growing medium the end of flowering should see a thorough flush with plain water in order to maximise and accentuate the full flavour effect. Towards the end of florescence there is a good chance of purple hues appearing in the buds and smaller leaves especially when night-time temperatures are a lot cooler, say 10°C or so, and this looks very striking alongside the orange pistils.
The taste is a blend of Kush, bakery goods and forest fruits with some earthy undertones. THC production is very high at 27% and CBD levels are low. The effect is a mixture of mental and creative energy accompanied by an almost jelly-like feeling in the body. Just make sure there's a couch nearby! You'll probably need to sit or lie down.
