Like its offspring, the Triple Diesel strain (Sour Diesel X Strawberry Diesel X NYC Diesel), the Sour Diesel marijuana strain is well known for its distinctive smell. If you’re looking to hide your stash or grow room, this lady may just be the one to give you away with her inviting aromas.

You’d think that the strong aroma would indicate an overpowering taste; you couldn’t be more wrong. Sour Diesel’s flavor is like sweet citrus followed by hints of herbal and a touch of spice. 

Stock up on water and eye drops when testing this gal. She may leave you with a cottonmouth and dry eyes. This one’s a puff-puff-pass candidate as you don’t want to overdo it, she may be beginner-friendly, but if you smoke too much, you might just be left couch-bound. 

Sour Diesel grow information

A little tricky to grow, the marijuana strain Sour Diesel isn’t one for newbies. The Sour Diesel strain flowering time is between 10-11 weeks and needs TLC all the way.  If you treat her like a princess, you’ll harvest like a queen. A well-cared-for plant can yield over 1 oz/sq ft indoors and up to 25 oz/per plant outdoors.

The Sour Diesel strain does well in both indoor and outdoor environments. She’s one of the more lanky-looking gals and doesn’t show typical sativa characteristics in her shape. You’ll need to provide her with some guidance through training to preserve her gorgeous leafy branches.

Growing over 4ft tall, some prefer to harvest the Sour Diesel weed strain outside. If you choose a controlled grow setup, you’ll need to provide enough space and light to cover this towering beauties’ canopy.
