The resulting indica was re-crossed with an AK 47 male, a fast-flowering Sativa hybrid, contributing a very potent high on top of a short flowering cycle she has in common with the rest of the strains used to produce this variety.
Star 47 is the result of crossing the famous mainly sativa hybrid, AK 47, that has an ultra quick flowering cycle and a very fruity taste with the cup-winning champion, Sensi Star, which is a mainly indica hybrid with very broad leaves and very dense buds covered in sweet, fruity resin crystals, creating a mainly indica hybrid with a unique, sweet, fruity taste and aroma.
This strain is a cross between two genetics whose taste and aroma alone make them top choices for many growers. A selected specimen from the spectacularly tasting Blue family crossed with the fruity Strawberry resulted in a mainly sativa strain but with a short flowering cycle. She produces long branches, making her ideal for SCROG or SOG systems although care is required in SOG systems to control the height.
A good tip for outdoor growing is to plant out as soon as the good weather starts then repeat a few days before harvesting the first crop to give two good harvests a year. Some growers do more, though owing to the less favourable conditions, these crops tend to be less productive. For indoor growing we recommend a 20/4 light/dark cycle throughout.
By crossing two very different genetics, Yumbolt and AK 47, we’ve achieved a unique hybrid with a very sweet incense taste which evokes Californian Sativas (which is where Yumbolt comes from), but with a special twist that makes her different. Although Indica, she grows vigorously like a Sativa but with a much shorter flowering cycle.
