Is this the ultimate Italian variety?
And who other than the “Red Calabrian”!
A unique variety that was at risk of extinction due to prohibitionism, the Albanian with ammonia and the massive spread of Dutch seeds.
It stands out with it’s the unusual bright red markings on the trichomes, characterized by its distinctive and special flavor giving a sativa brain high which will make you happy and keep you active.
The Red derives from an Afghan that was naturalized in Calabria following the theft of some seeds from the Botanical Gardens of Naples and then became rooted all over the area.
Thanks to its geological history and the various micro climates present in the Calabrian valleys also known as greenhouses, where products such as bergamot and limes have been grown over the years and sold worldwide. In this area you can even find snow in August! This is where the Red strain became modified giving birth to the legendary “Calabrian Reds”. We use the plural term because due to the diverse micro climatic conditions many strains with significant differences exist.
Thanks to the passion and stubbornness of our Italian breeders who over the years have preserved, guarded and passed down these seeds jealously, we are able, today, to offer you one of those indigenous species in the auto flowering version which made the “Red Calabrian” a legend amongst stoners who have been lucky enough to fall into her “deep red”.
Whilst you are waiting for the famous “Red” to arrive make the most of this little jewel completely “Made in Italy”.
Extremely generous in flavor and yield!!
This plant has a sativa character and is distinguished by its long central cola and generous lateral branches that are very productive and which form its Christmas tree shape.
Indoors it will grow up to 130cm and is suitable for SOG and LST techniques. An average yield of 450-550g/mq with 600w lamps can be expected.
It will do best in ground but behaves well in hydro and coco coir cultivation too.
This is an overall resistant plant and is the obvious choice for beginner growers.
Outdoors it is unbeatably resistant and can even be mistreated.
It will react well when deprived of water, grows to 150cm and yields approximately 200g/plant.
When it is harvested early you can get a long and intense high that energizers you during the day. If it is harvested late, the stoned effect will be emphasized by persistent euphoria and a lot of laughing for no reason.
The unique and rare taste of this variety comes from way back. The flavor is a mix of lime and orange together with the sweetness of pine and eucalyptus with some hints of earthiness making it a sweet and sour strain. Its unmistakable smell makes it recognizable from a distance.
