Citrix


Strain: Citrix (Grapefruit x LA Confidential)

Recommended experience level: Intermediate

Female: Grapefruit

About the mother: Grapefruit

Overview:

  • Astonishingly mouthwatering. This bright and uplifting sativa has the most intense and clean citrus flavor of any strain we’ve ever come across. The flavor is so incredible and thoroughly enjoyable that we’d want to smoke it even if it didn’t get us high, yet it regularly tests between 19-21% THC. It really packs a wallop in both flavor and potency.  The high is energetic, yet not racy.

Yield: High

  • 400-800g / 1000W

Flowering time: Long

  • 70-77 days.

Growth stature:  Tall

  • Vigorous vegetative growth. The grapefruit will experience a significant increase in height once flowering has commenced. She takes well to pinching and topping during vegetative period, and yields best with several tops in flower. Training branches laterally may be required in setups where height is a constraint.

Nugget type and density:

  • Large heavy flower set with calyxes that swell significantly in late flower, but retract during drying and curing leaving a slightly loose and fluffy nugget.

Unique strain traits and oddities of mother: Grapefruit

  • Grows 3 fingered blade leaves within buds during flowering

Why we chose her: Grapefruit

  • Flavor, flavor, and more flavor. In addition to the unbelievable flavor the Grapefruit mother brings to the party, she also brings much more vigorous vegetative growth than the LA Con, a significant increase in size, and thus yield. Oh and did we mention the amazing flavor?
