In some phenotypes, sweet citrus notes are perceived that remind us of mandarins.
Dinafem also brought out its own feminized replica, also from the Eauropean New York Diesel, so it's very similar to the previous one.

Another feminized version created in Europe through the original Sour Diesel strain. In general it is very similar, especially in the most outstanding features of the classic, but easier to grow, as it does not stretch so much in flowering, nor does it take much longer to mature. Some specimens emanate very complex aromas that intermingle chemical and citrus notes reminiscent of lime.
Soma was the breeder who brought Diesel genetics to Europe. It was after finding seeds in a bag of Diesel weed bought in New York, that he crossed with his Hawaiian/Afghan male.

The taste of this genetics depends a lot on the type of cultivation and the feeding it is given. When it is cultivated with mineral nutrients the citrus part is appreciated much less, leaving the aftertaste to fuel more marked, with fewer nuances.
