The pleasingly named Mango, an Indica and Sativa mix that’s Indica dominant, was developed by renowned Dutch horticulturist KC Brains in 1991, using a strain brought back from India by a hippy and one of Brains’ own types, KC 33. KC 33 is a hybrid of plants from Thailand and Brazil. Mango weed took third place in the Indica section of the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2002, and also ranked in the magazine’s top 10 seeds of 2009.
This weed has a full-bodied fruity flavor with easily identifiable ripe mango tones and the sweet smell may remind you of burning incense. Smoking effects include a relaxing body stone and a trippy buzz; do not have anything planned if you’re going to smoke this weed! In medical use this weed is recommended for nausea, lack of appetite and stress.
These short plants, about a metre high at maturity, have unusually strong side stems. They need these to support the extremely large buds which can grow as long as an extraordinary 40 centimetres and are heavy with sticky resin. The plant starts of dark green but gradually changes to a deep red and purple hue as it matures.
Indoors, Mango seeds are a slow starter, but this soon changes so that the plant’s vigorous growth will need to be controlled by pruning. Using the SOG growing method, flowering time is from seven to nine weeks and yields are around 400 grams per square metre.
Outdoors, the plan needs a warm sunny position and in the northern hemisphere should be ready for harvest in the second half of October.
Mango weed’s delicious mango flavor makes it a favorite with growers and smokers and its high THC level guarantees a satisfying and long-lasting stone. This is another Mango review that would recommend this weed.
