60% Sativa / 40% Indica
Genetics: Mexican Sativa x Afghani
Flowering: 10-12 weeks
I’ve never quite understood why Holland’s Soma Seeds don’t sell a t-shirt that apes the famous New York one, but instead reads “I Heart NYC Diesel” with a cheeky shot of bud behind the heart; tourists might get a more interesting keepsake and every patriotic pothead could praise their favorite strain! With the combined genetics of a Mexican sativa and an Afghani indica, NYC Diesel is Soma’s most famous strain, and one that has its roots in some seeds brought by a dreadlocked friend in the Big Apple itself.
This strain grows to about 4 feet inheight and doesn’t usually cause any trouble for even novice growers; mild mannered and easy to please, she has a good resistance to pests and doesn’t demand heavy nutrient applications. After a manageable 11-week flowering period you can expect a harvest of at least 25 grams per plant indoors using a SOG method. If you’d like to get a mother plant (and you will), clones are ridiculously easy to get – and almost impossible to kill.
Despite the name, NYC Diesel’s aromas are more ripe grapefruit than slick oil. This strain has a 40% indica profile so the high is balanced between head and body. Soma’s recommendation is to enjoy NYC Diesel with a good meal – and if you’re in NYC, there’s no shortage of those.
