Sugar Cookies – I think its a perfect name for this cross between two Girl Scout Cookie females to a very vigorous Sugar Chunk male. The flavor and POTENCY of GSC has taken it from a passing fad to a “must have” in many green gardens. But growers also have their complaints about the cookies. So…
My initial goal with this outcross is simply a first step to get the Girl Scout Cookies in regular seed form. Because having female AND male plants to work with allows me to do some selective breeding and hopefully eliminate some of GSC’s negative growing habits — the two main gripes being low yield and susceptibility to molds.
Sugar Cookies will show improved resistance to powdery mildew and molds. While mold could hit everything else in the garden, even protracted rain and wet won’t bring down the father of this cross, Sugar Chunk. The Sugar Chunk male will also show his effect with enlarged and slightly elongated buds, bringing the opportunity for higher yields. Overall plant size will remain about 5-7 feet maximum, if topped once or left untrained.
Great for indoors.
Also very good outdoors below 47 north lat. — Finishes by last week Sept to first week Oct.
After setting aside enough seed for my work, I decided to release the rest so more growers can get access to these unique and quality genetics. And I initially decided that… When they’re gone, they’re gone. But…
So many customers are raving about the Sugar Cookies, many are coming back and buying more packs after sampling their first harvest — I must admit this outcross has far surpassed expectations. I’ve decided this variety will be continued in my lineup. In fact, Its currently at f3 and I’m preparing for the f4 generation breeding project.
