Desert Diesel came into existence as the product of crossing an Amherst Sour Diesel with an Emerald Mountain DAD (Diesel Afghan Diesel). Desert Diesel is a slender sativa-dominant (55%) marijuana strain that grows with an open structure. It puts on a colourful display where there is a significant night-time fall in temperature.
This is a plant for all growing environments and, if grown indoors, it should be vegged. for a limited period as it can stretch quite a bit once flowering has been initiated. For outdoor growers a warm, dry, temperate or Mediterranean climate type is best; failing that a greenhouse at higher latitudes will also be acceptable. Its buds are dense and very resinous and anyone who is a fan of Diesel will love Desert Diesel.
Grown indoors this strain will produce yields in the region of 340 - 525 gr/m2 in 65 - 75 days flowering. The exact yield and length of flowering will depend on local conditions and growers' expertise. Outdoors plants can grow to a height of 3 - 4 meters or even more producing between 1.2 - 2.5 kg/plant in early/mid October in the northern hemisphere.
The aroma and flavour of Desert Diesel are very complex and includes sweet fruit, sandalwood, oil and, of course, Diesel. THC production is 17% - 20% with low CBD of 0.1%. The effect is typically sativa, powerful, long-lasting giving feelings of euphoria with great clarity.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
