We have known that grapefruit is good for the heart. In the same manner, once could argue that anything that is good for the mind must also be good for the heart.

So, what do we mean by that?

Grapefruit Diesel has a higher Indica side, but it has a more pronounced Sativa effects. As such, it delivers an intense but liberating mental high that makes users feel good. At the same time, it does so without narcotic-like effects. As a result, people using this strain becomes clear headed and motivated.

As soon as we took a look at its genetic lineage, it became evident where it took its name from – Grapefruit and NYC Diesel.

Grapefruit is notable for its stress-relieving Sativa effects. Of course, it took its name because of the similarity in scent with the real fruit.

NYC Diesel, meanwhile, is a legendary strain that breeders have used in breeding. In fact, it has won the High Time Cannabis Cup several times in the past. It is also known as the ideal strain for parties and social gatherings. As its name suggests, it has a strong scent of fuel.

From these two strains, a new hybrid came to exist. If one were to write a book about each of those strains, then the summary would be Grapefruit Diesel. In other words, it inherited some of the best traits of its parents for the benefit of consumers.

One thing to note is that Grapefruit Diesel is hard to obtain. In fact, we are not even sure if there are seeds still available.

There is not much information about cultivating Grapefruit Diesel. About the only thing that we could gather was that it grows more like an Indica. As such, we know it has a shorter flowering time. Also, it does not grow tall and tends to be bushier with dark green buds covered by amber colored hair and sticky resins.

It is safe to say that this plant should thrive well inside the house or outside in the garden. Of course, in outdoor, that assumes it is legal where it is planted.

Flowering Time

For most Indica dominant plants, the average flowering time indoor is 8 to 9 weeks. Of course, there is a chance that it could be earlier by a week if growers opt for hydroponics. It appears, too, that its yield per square meter will range in 12 to 16 ounces.

Some sources say the Grapefruit Diesel will be ready for harvest in the early days of October. Each of the short bushy plants should have a yield of at least 16 ounces.
