Breeder information:

Before All the named cuts of “Diesel, ECSD, AJ, etc.”, there were only a few names in circulation related to “Diesel”, around 2003, that I was aware of.  There was Sour Diesel, Original Diesel, and “Chem”… Not much else was known.  I received clones of many named and similar “diesel” plants over the last 15+ years.  But the one that always stuck in my personal garden and always seemed to be the “best”, in side by side comparisons of diesels, was the “Original Diesel” I received from forum user, Schrooomy.  It was always the skunkiest, most fume-y, smoothest tasting waxy diesel in the room.  For flavor and true diesel form, it was always #1 for me.


In an effort to bring down the flower time and just take a peek into the possibilities, we made Original Diesel x Zkittles feminized hybrid and grew those out.  To be honest, that hybrid was all over the place.  Some were pure diesel. Some, a weird fruity thing with weak resin, but one out of the 20 stood out to me.  With an intense blossoming honeysuckle diesel smell and bright orange pistils, she seemed a little nothing like either parent, but obviously had traits of both.  Something I thought would be fun to breed and play with.


And that’s exactly what I did.  Some of the older strains have such dominant traits compared to today’s varieties, that hybrids with them, in my experience, yield a “one step forward, two steps back” kind of result.  Diesel has been one of those type plants for me.  Whether BX’d or Filial, When I select for diesel traits, I almost always get the longer flowering time and other less desirable diesel traits coming along with it.  So, I like going a generation or two past the original parent, while maintaining as much of the desirable traits through selection, as possible.


This hybrid of the Planet Purple Male and Original Diesel x Zkittles #3 accomplishes much of what my Diesel F1’s sometimes lacked.  Diesel-y looking and smelling plants I always got, but reduced flower times and washable resin quality usually didn’t come with it. This hybrid on the other hand, nailed it.  Big Fat bulbous diesel buds but with improved resin density, washability, and color from the Planet Purple and Zkittles sides of the equation.  They balance out beautifully to create something new and truly unique, to add to the stable.
