Soma's New York City Diesel is a pungent sativa with invredible yields. Soma added some Hawaiian and Afghan indica influence to the popular, almost purely sativa Sour Diesel. This raises the hybrid's calyx quotient - NYC Diesel becomes a colossus or airy bud formation with very few leaves. Soma reports indoor yields of up to 100 grams per pant with some extra vegging. The strain favors indoor cultivation except in tropical climates, although good yields have been reported in the semi-arid climate of Southern California.
This strain can reach 12 feet outdoors or 4 feet indoors. Soma reports best indoor results from growing NYC Diesel as a multi-branch plant in guano-fertilized soil. The plant responds well to heavy cropping, which encourages it to form four or five big top colas. NYC Diesel's few leaves are thick and wide - more palm than finger - and dark green turning more purple toward harvest. A bed or garden of these tall conifer-like ladies smells exhilirating, like a grove of ripe grapefruit. "Tart citrus" also defines their taste, a little sweeter than the mother strain's lemon tang.
NYC Diesel is a cerebral daytime toke with a hint of body stone, good for recreation and making or enjoying art. This strain has placed in three Cannabis Cups and is a popular cafe smoke in Amsterdam.
