Citrus fizz…If you love your flavors then this is the autoflower for you! Lemonade Auto is one big juicy fruit bowl full of terpenes with a rich stream of citrus flowing through its core. This hybrid auto plant, balanced more towards the sativa, is a real feel-good ‘taste of summer’ plant.
In the blender are the flavors of Tangerine Sorbet – the Cali addition to Paradise’s renowned Wappa strain family – but taken to new levels. For autoflower growers the extra THC potency (20%+) will also be a big plus, providing a powerful return on such a quick flowering variety.
The lineage of Lemonade Auto begins with Tangerine Sorbet, a popular Paradise sativa which combines Wappa and Thin Mint Cookie genetics. For this strain a pheno displaying accentuated tangerine/orange sweetness was chosen and combined with a selected Lemon Skunk with a particularly sour profile. Tweaks in the breeding room have produced a strain which will make the mouth water!
Aromas and Flavours
What can we say about Lemonade Auto? When we say its essence is dominated by citrus it really doesn’t do this strain justice. In the grow room you can almost smell the vitamin C as layers of orange and lemon hang in the air. The orangey high notes of its Tangerine Sorbet parentage have been accentuated to bring the kind of intense sweetness which comes from peeling a tangerine picked ripe from the tree. While maintaining the citrus theme, a sour lemon edge provides an enjoyable counter balance to the taste sensation and will be more pronounced in some phenotypes of this variety.
Difficulty Level: Easy
Indoors: Some strains are just aesthetic crowd pleasers in the grow room and Lemonade Auto is definitely one of these. It is a lovely plant to grow, and its strong but zesty scent will definitely enhance any grow room. Its sativa characteristics are definitely present in the grow structure and growers should allow for 1 – 1.5 meters in height (somewhere in the middle will be the common experience).
Outdoors: Again, a lovely growing experience, and while outdoor growers won’t get the full effect of the wonderful aromas, this plant will impress and is definitely an easy fit into any summer garden. Those sativa genes may well see it stretch a little more outside, especially under the heat and sun of the Mediterranean zone.
Yield and Presentation
The sativa nature of Lemonade Auto is evident in the growth pattern of this autoflower and its upwards tower structure. Big top buds are clustered around a main central cola, with supporting branches beneath yielding smaller but dense nuggets which growers will enjoy plucking, like oranges and lemons. The tangerine coloring in the buds is complemented by a trichome layer which resembles the heavy sprinkle of a spoonful of sugar (not that these buds need to be any sweeter!).
Indoor Yield: 500 g per m²
Outdoor Yield: 50+ g per plant
Recreational: While this plant has a high potency level the effect will be popular with those seeking the energy and clarity which comes with a good sativa strain. The effect is lively but without the jittery speediness that is a characteristic of some high THC sativas. The Lemonade Auto effect is conducive to socializing with friends or getting creative with one’s own thoughts and will bring a sense of care-free attitude to any occasion. A good all day experience.
Medical: The uplifting qualities of this plant provide a natural tonic against the challenges of the day. For this reason medical conditions affected by stress and anxiety may benefit from a shot of Lemonade Auto. It also has potential as an appetite inducer.
Suitable for growing outside between 50º n.L. and 50º s.L., Lemonade Auto cannabis seeds produce plants that will finish in 10 – 11 weeks after seed germination and slightly less indoors. Estimated yield is 500 grams per m² indoors / 50+ grams per plant outdoors.
