Diesel is yet another legend created in the United States of America that was named after the diesel-like smell of the fresh buds. This is one of the best selling varieties in the U.S., which says a lot for its popularity.
The strong points of this variety are its distinct lemon-lime flavour mixed with tangerine and a touch of diesel fuel. In some specimens the flavour is extra long-lasting. This long aftertaste is the main reason for the success of this strain, together with its Sativa high. The effect is light, not extreme or heavy, and fades gradually. The high is much more cerebral than physical.
It is easy to grow, moderately mould resistant in cool outdoor areas, and presents no fungus problems in Mediterranean areas. Its excellent production makes it a great choice for outdoor gardens.
