Whether it's the biblical strains that I am consuming or that fact that I'm living my life more authentically, I am feeling mighty grateful these days for many reasons. And this strain made my gratitude even greater. I liked this strain a lot!
It brought me up, when I was feeling down and helped me have more compassion for myself and for those around me. Well, maybe something bigger than the weed actually did all that spiritual elevation. But, if you're in the need of some soul comforting, search Jesus, the cannabis strain, at your local dispensary and then, surrender to the Divine Being within yourself. It's hard to top finding Jesus, but Zilvermist was like finding a unicorn strain of sorts. Despite it's complicated genetic make up, this strain simply helped me to just chill out and have fun.
It expresses itself just like a straight up sativa and causes less "psychedelic haziness" than Super Silver Haze or Kali-Mist strains and more body relaxation that your average straight up sativa strain. So this strain is perfect for day or evening use. It takes a lot of creativity and time to produce the perfect cannabis strain, as it does to create the life you desire.
Be the magic, create the music and the peace in your life, today. Yesterday, Mercury went direct along with several other of our planets. So, the time for looking backward is over! It's now time to move forward in a new direction. However, Life is never that clear cut. Life is a bit more messy and the old lingers, mixing with the new and untried. We can actually split our focus and take care of the business of now and take small steps to our next chapters.
And, as always, my choice for weed strains mirror what is going on in my life. Although its effects are indica like body heaviness , it did uplift my spirits and made me feel like everything would be alright, even if I didn't know how that would happen. This strain is said to be a great beginner strain because there are a very little downsides to this strain due to its balancing of indica and sativa qualities.
However, I would suggest that you use this strain at night due to the sleepiness it causes. I liked this strain because it really did help me to choose the sunny side of the street The next strain also got me to the sunny side of the street, but my another route. The effects of Red Dragon are slightly sativa dominant, characterized by an uplifting euphoria that leaves you giggly, talkative, sociable, and happy.
This makes it the perfect strain to consume during the day. Its uplifting effects may help relieve fatigue and a low mood, as well as stimulate productivity and creativity.
The relaxing effects of this strain is said to help with stress or anxiety, while the physical effects may also help tame mild pain. The flavors and aromas of this strain are very intriguing, boasting a complex combination of woody pine aromas with spicy, slightly herbal flavors. I found this strain uplifting, yet not jumpy. It's balanced sativa dominance spurned me forward to take baby steps towards my next chapter with confidence and courage fueled by the fire of a red dragon!
You and I have made it through three eclipses, six planets in retrograde, a full moon and a new moon, hopefully leaving us lighter, brighter and clearer on our intentions for our future. One of my intentions for my future is to create and maintain balance in every area of my life. And, that theme of "balance" trickled into the two weed strains that I chose last week. After going through all the eclipse and retorgrade energies, I felt like I was experiencing some form of malaise, depression and as always, ADHD.
So, with a little intervention from the weed gods, I was led to this strain and it provided me with almost instant relief, a bit of euphoria and a bit of hope that I would have the courage to leave my past behind and move forward with grace and ease. All in all, I feel stronger, more inspired and happy than I have ever been in my life.
Thanks to the Universe that continues to show me that finding balance in life and in my weed strains may be the recipe for a very happy, and high life! August is the month of my birth and always brings me gifts-both physical and spiritual. However, this August is supercharged by six planets in retrograde and a solar eclipse which is looming on the horizon August 11th.
All that cosmic energy has been forcing me to really examine who, what and where matters to me and then let all the other stuff go. It is a time to begin anew and the only way you can begin anew is to let go of all the things that you have become attached to, which in reality,serve you no purpose and in fact are keeping you stuck in a place that you have long outgrown with people, who are no longer a vibrational fit.
As I continue to soul search, so do I continue to search for new and untried cannabis strains. The first one I discovered last week was Iron Haze. Although I've pieced together the genealogy of this strain, there is no real definitive information on it, which I could find. That being said, Iron Haze also known as metal haze is a sativa strain created by crossing Haze strain, a highly sought after uplifting sativa strain that is none for it spacey, racy effects with an unknown sativa.
It should be noted that there are a variety of Haze strains, typically referred to by the region from with it originally stems from. When smoked, this strain can make you feel euphoria, creativity, calm, numbness, appetite gain, and pain relief.
Combined with the heavy energies in the universe right now, this strain made me feel a bit jumpy and wound up. So, I'll probably pass it by the next time I run into it. And, just like all the other things, which haven't been serving me, I will let it go! We made it through the longest lunar eclipse in centuries! And, although I'm still feeling the ripples from it, I am beginning to move through it and am coming out the other side lighter, brighter and stronger!
It has been said that through great struggle comes great growth. If that is the case, then I am becoming ferociously strong and powerful! Although I am learning my lessons and becoming stronger, I still look to my weed strain to give me more power and more strength and that's what I found in this week's first strain, Zelly's gift. The strong mother genetics root this strain in uplifting sativa effects while its recessive indica-dominant genetics give it a fruity flavor.
In addition to the lunar eclipse, which we experienced last week, Mercury is also in retrograde, slowing us all down and giving us another look of our past and our shadows. And, let's not forget all the communication snafu's that happen during Mercury Retrograde. So, I thought I'd choose a strain that also was a bit out of the ordinary. In fact, I could find no information at all about this strain, Divorce Cake.
However, I think it is a play on words-instead of calling the strain Wedding Cake , this grower decided that divorces were so much more common these days and that may even need their own cake to celebrate the dissolution of their marriages! Wedding Cake is a indica dominant hybrid. It was created by crossing triangle cookies x animal mints.
After a couple more sweet smokes, I became couch locked, which often happens to me when I consume one too many tokes of an indica strain. Whether your celebrating a marriage or a divorce, this strain will keep you chilled out and pleasantly euphoric. Even if you don't have an event to celebrate, Divorce Cake can help you find something to celebrate, be grateful for or just see the sunny side of life.
As we continue through eclipse season, I continue to be given opportunities to see the "dark" parts of myself that have been hidden deep within me. Real transformation requires guts, tenacity and most of all willingness. However, even though I thought I've been willing to change, I found out that like most humans, I resist change and have done many things to avoid seeing the parts of myself that were programmed at birth to sabotage my growth and my greatness.
And, yes change is work. But, the work is so worthwhile and ultimately results in me having more self respect, strength and self love. Something that I never need to work at is finding my next favorite weed strain! This week I easily and effortlessly found a new strain to bring more light into my life. Purple Tangie is my first enlightening strain! Purple Tangie is a sativa dominant hybrid strain created through crossing the big, bold mouthwatering Tangie strain with an unknown Purple strain.
Thus, trying a Tangie strain wasn't my first choice, but it's aroma and purple beauty were enough to push me to it again.
First, Purple Tangie is super flavorable with huge citrus notes and some piney and tropical undertones. And, I can attest to that fact. Tangie came to my rescue this week as I awakened to many people, places and things from my past that I clearly need to let go of Tangie is not one of them.
The next strain, Dream Cookies , is truly like one of my dreams came true! Dream cookies is a sativa dominant hybrid that was created by crossing the ever popular, Blue Dream and the other every popular Girl Scout Cookies. With this bud, the name says it all — a sweet cookie flavor and dreamy happy effects! Dream Cookies has a flavor that fuses both of its parent strains, mixing freshly baked cookies with ripe blueberries for a fruity nutty flavor explosion that will leave you begging for more.
The aroma is very fruity and earthy with a nuttiness to it. I felt the heady effects first, with a euphoric lift that left me focused although hazy at times. The feeling of deep relaxation spread throughout the rest of my body, leaving me calm and at ease.
I am making positive changes in every area of my life. This week Dream Cookies helped me in all my endavours. Bet it will help you too! We are in the middle of an eclipse season.
Eclipses are harbingers of change. At a lunar eclipse, the shadow of the Earth falls across the face of the Moon bringing unconscious feelings to the surface, grounding them in reality. Lunar eclipses are culminations of emotional cycles that have run their course, and they encourage us to let go of emotions and attachments that are no longer serving us. To put it simply, you and I get to see our shadows, the dark parts of ourselves that we have hidden inside but still haunt us and sometimes even limit the scope of our lives.
We then get to process those hidden parts and then let them go All the being said, this week's weed strains are both a throwback from the past and a look into the future. If you are old enough, you may remember one of the most iconic and classic cannabis strains Panama Red. You can count on your mood being elevated and your creativity stimulated. To me, this strain brought back memories of my college days, when weed was just weed and it just got you high, not for any other particular reason.
It's effects were chilled and a bit psychedelic. This strain is hard to find so if you find it, step back in time and let the strain do its thing- Panama Red, Panama Red He'll steal your woman, then he'll rob your head Panama Red, Panama Red!
Just like the song says- "Panama Red-it will steal your woman and then will rob your head! From an old school strain to the next generation of cannabis strains, the next strain Rainmaker is being touted as one of the most extraordinary cross breeding in the cannabis industry today.
Rainmaker is one of their newest creations and is a cross between Citral Skunk x Mandarin Sunset. It is visually stunning and it's flavor is just as notable with a rich terpene profile of cheese, skunk and citrus. I liked the taste and the effects of this strain. Cannabis strains have come along way baby and they keep changing and evolving-just like you and me! The dog days of summer have hit Southern California with temps soaring into the 's and lucky for me that I found a new hot strain to cool me off and chill me out!
Electric Lemonade is exactly was I needed to perk me up and lift my heat weary spirits. This state is slightly tingly at times, which can leave you feeling aroused or slightly agitated. This strain could be one of my favorites. It's flavor and effects blow away Blue Dream! To me, it has the perfect balance of cerebral and physical effects, paired with a flavor profile that brings the best citrus and sweet flavors to life.
This strain screams summer and makes you not care how hot it is outside 'cause you just stone cold chillin! I'm of the belief that there's always something "good" awaiting me and therefore, I am always on the look out for a "diamond in the rough. However, most of my sources do say it is a complex hybrid, featuring stunning, bright green and orange buds. Those brightly colored and flowery fragrant buds were what initially got my attention. With every inhalation, you taste different notes of pine, lavender, berries, finishing up with the unmistakable taste of skunk.
After being wowed by the taste the effects didn't disappoint either. This strain provides an uplifting cerebral euphoria without leaving your wigged out or spaced out-you can still function. If you continue to consume this strain you will find that your body will become totally relaxed. Your body and brain will feel no pain! Gemstone is a true jewel of a strain. I am always looking for the next best thing to happen to me. Lucky for me, gemstone is around to shimmer, sparkle and shine it's light on my life.
Somehow we find ourselves in July and although I'm having a tough time with how fast time flies, the licensed recreational cannabis retail stores are truly reeling! For you see, as of July 1st a whole new set of regulations went into effect, impacting how and who could now legally sell cannabis products and flower. Those new regulations imposed by the State of California mandate certain standards for testing, labeling and child resistant packaging. That meant I could try products that I normally wouldn't even consider buying unless they were almost free-they were almost free!
And that's how I found Floracal Farms pre-rolls-strain specific pre-rolls, filled with Rollins , a tasty sativa strain. I used to buy a bunch of pre-rolls, because it was my duty to know my competition, when I was hawking Hello Mello precision pre-rolls. But, most of them just suck. I'm never quite sure what's in them even when they say they are strain specific. However, perhaps my absence from the pre-roll world made the Floracal Farms pre-rolls seem so good, really good! They come five in a pack, which comes to an eigth of flower in each pack.
The pre-rolls are tasty, smooth and most importantly the flower was just awesome! Rollins is a citrusy strain that boosts your mood and energy level and can really help you to concentrate. So it goes to show you that one man's loss, the licensed dispensaries that is, is another one's gain. In this case that would be me! I am told that we can expect cannabis flower shortages since many companies will not be able to sell their products because they are not in compliance.
Whether or not there are shortages, I will continue to venture outside the chaos of these new legal shops to my favorite flower shops, which are still sprinkled around SD county to find my cannabis flower. I am so grateful to be a part of this budding industry, which changes almost every day, just like me!
As I age, I realize more often than not that "life isn't always peaches and cream. I wasn't incredibly impressed with this strain because it's effects were too non-commital for me. It's flavor wasn't anything fruity, like it's name, it's effects just left me feeling flat. So that goes to show you, that even in the world of weed, everything is not always peaches and cream.
When life gives you lemons, go make some lemonade. But, when life gives you lemon cookies, you don't need to do anything but smile and be grateful that you found a new strain that tastes awesome and lifts your spirits!
The aroma of this strain is like smelling a fresh peeled lemon slice and its taste is similar to Girl Scout Cookies, the cannabis strain, not the sugary sweet treats sold by girls in green. This strain effects are euphoric and yet relaxing. It's a light and bright, fun strain that will lift your mood and keep you smiling for hours.
So, forget about the lemons that life has given you this week and head into your weekend with hope in your heart and lemon cookies in your soul! Today is the longest day of the year and the beginning of the summer. It is a good day to be grateful for what you manifested thus far this year and to focus on what you still wish to come to you in the days to follow. I am grateful that cannabis is legal in California and that I have such a plethora of flower to choose from. This week I am grateful for the Dream Queen that I found ruling over many other strains at my favorite weed shop.
This strain has a fairly high CBD content, roughly 0. It's CBD content however, is not high enough to recommend it as a front-line form of treatment for seizure disorders or other conditions that respond to CBD preparations. But, Dream Queen can be used as an effective treatment for fatigue, nausea, stress, and lack of appetite it induces powerful munchies in some folks. Dream Queen is a California original, found in medical marijuana dispensaries up and down the state.
It's the perfect strain if you're in the mood to go California dreamin'! Although this strain is definitely an indica, Obama Kush sets itself apart from other indicas through its cerebral stimulation and euphoric rush. I however found it to be a night time strain because it left my body feeling heavy, even if mind was active.
On this first day of summer, I highly suggest that you take advantage of the extra daylight and go out and find yourself a reason to be grateful! There are weeks that drag on and on. They are neither good nor bad, just long! This week was one of them and it is finally ending! And, on this Friday afternoon, I entrusted Candyland to pick me up out of my self-created doldrums so that I could begin my weekend feeling uplifted and positive.
And, I was right about my choice! It's a mostly sativa strain with parents of Granddaddy Purps and Platinum Cookies. Those genes make for an upbeat, stimulating effect that spurs creativity and provides energy for daytime tasks. Candyland has a strong sweet flavor and smell, with an earthy, spicy undertone. Its appearance is compact and camouflage-colored, with flecks of gold and shimmering trichomes. It's an ideal strain for treating anxiety and depression, along with bipolar disorder, chronic pain, and ADHD.
It's an ideal strain to help you have an attitude change, which is exactly what I needed! With my attitude adjusted, I made my way to have me a slice of " Black Cherry Pie ". Almost immediately after your first exhale, the effects of Blackcherry Pie will start to kick in, lifting you into a soothing state of euphoria that eases away any mental pains or racing thoughts. Thanks to these effects and its moderate THC level, Blackcherry Pie is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as appetite loss, nausea, chronic pain or cramps, and insomnia.
I am grateful for it all! The first week of June has been joyously filled with light and airy energies. So, too are the two strains which helped brighten up my week and bring even more joy to my June. Both of the strains are what are called "landrace" strains.
A landrace strain is a cannabis strain that has developed over centuries in a particular natural environment. Different cannabis cultivars that have grown, inbred and adapted to very specific geographical location are pure cannabis strains. Said another way, landrace strains are indigenous cannabis plants. While some landrace strains are cultivated to make unique types of hashish or cannabis products, others grow wild in their respective countries.
For example, native cannabis plants found in the Kush Mountain region are quite different than the native, wild plants found in Thailand. Landrace strains are important because of their genetics. If left to their own devices, the plants will evolve over millennia to make better use of resources in their particular habitat. I was not able to find out the "real" gentics behind this big, bold, heavy hitting sativa strain. But it's daddy Durbon Poison is unmistakably the dominant parent.
The effects of Durban Poison are energizing and leave you clear-headed and highly alert. It also is high in cannabinoid THCV, which may hold potential in stabilizing insulin levels. Durban poison is one of my favorite sativa strains and whatever it was paired with it to create poison 13, it has my blessing. It's flavor is very sweet and intoxicatingly complex, with a palate of flavors ranging from sweet lemon candy to spicy anise.
Poison 13 will bring you joy! I have seen this strain throughout my travels but shied away from it because of its appearance of its buds, which are thin and appear more like an indica flower than a sativa. The taste of Nepalese is very much the same, with a sweet citrus onset and a hint of lavender earth upon exhale that sits pleasantly on the tongue. As I mentioned earlier, Nepalese buds are fluffy popcorn-shaped dark forest green nugs with rich amber hairs and a fine layer of sparse clear crystal trichomes and sweet sticky resin, which are similar to indica leaves.
Because of these powerful cerebral effects, Nepalese is said to be the perfect strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic fatigue, mild to moderate cases of depression, chronic stress, and chronic pain.
I liked this strain because I needed the mood boost and the euphoria after fighting the May gray blues and the leftover feelings of frustration and physcial exhaustion.
Indeed both of the strains which I chose this week have helped me become more grounded, centered and creative-just in time to celebrate June gloom. It's June and I'm told by my astrology friends that June will bring all of us a reprieve from all the deep soul searching energies of the past five months! Bring on the joy! On that joyful note, the two strains I discovered this week were filled with joy and juice!
The first of those joyful strains was White Graperfruit. No matter who its daddy was, this strain is beautiful with a thick coat of trichomes and a sweet citrusy aroma and taste. I needed it's heavy handed sativa effect and it brightened my May gray mood,making way for joyful June. White Grapefruit is what everyone needs when you need a dose of Vitamin C so you can see life in a much sunnier way.
The next joyful strain that I tried this week was LSD. And, unlike the drug of the 60's, there are no bad trips with this cannabis strain and its effects are heady and leave you knowing that you are buzzed, yet relaxed. I love trying epic and elevating strains and this one definitely will make my June joyful. What will bring you joy this June? Make it an epic month As I head toward a holiday weekend, my mind is filled with dreams of the future and thoughts of what "could" be.
Sometimes, you have to point your sights to the heavens and Space Needle can help you get there in a flash! I really liked and really needed the creative kick, which I got almost immediately after consuming. This strain made me feel engaged and imaginative yet focused and alert with a sense of euphoric energy and mild warming effects felt throughout my entire body that felt very much like indica effects.
Because of the body relaxation that this strain provides, Space Needle is said to be an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as anxiety disorders, including PTSD, mild to moderate cases of depression, and chronic stress. Space Needle has a pungent earthy berry taste that sweetens upon exhale and a pungent aroma of sweet berry earth.
All in all, sometimes you just have to take a ride on the Space Needle to help your life right here on earth look pretty damn good! With all the wondering of what if that seems to be "going around" in our world, I must admit that I have had some restless nights. The genetic history of this strain can be traced back to the Hindu Kush mountains, although its lineage is poorly documented.
It's flavor is almost chocolatey with notes of pine and sweetness. Bubba Kush is a classic indica strain and should also come with a warning- it is not a daytime strain, unless you plan on sleeping your day away. I used it at bedtime and found sound sleep and sweet dreams. As we head into Memorial Day weekend I plan to remember how incredibly blessed I am every day and how every day offers me another chance!
What are you going to remember? Girls Scout Cookies never tasted this good! I'm told by my astrology friends that there are big doings in the heavens right now! And, that sets the stage for my first strain, Dragon's Breath. The bud I got was just beautiful-stunning in fact and it's flavor was citrus and of course that unmistakable "skunk".
It worked quickly on my "frayed" nerves and quickly soothed the "dragon" in me. Soothed and yet with a much brighter mood. With a bit more perspective, I took a look at Blue Diesel. Sometimes I choose a strain just because it looked good and smelled good, which was the case for this strain.
I assumed that this strain would be a classic sativa strain. In fact, this strain is a slightly indica-dominant hybrid, also known as Blue City Diesel, is a powerful cross of two popular strains: Blueberry and NYC Diesel. Blue Diesel helped me down shift just perfectly. The effects mirror the flavor with a much more mellow yet alert effects than your average blue dream strain. This strain definitely help me shed my "blues" and head into a weekend, feeling blessed and lucky to live my joyous life!
We are all blessed and lucky! They say that April showers bring May flowers and so, with May's arrival I found two new strains popping up at my not so local cannabis store. The first strain, is named after America's favorite outlaw country star and the living patron saint of marijuana, Willie Nelson.
This strain is a sativa dominant blend of Vietnamese Black and Highland Nepalese. The flavor of this strain is lemony, piney and sweet with an aroma that will definitely fill your room with some sweet citrus notes. The effects of this strain are also pretty lyrical and left me feeling creative, clear headed with a strong refrain of euphoria and elevated mood. Willie Nelson is a great strain to treat your daily stresses, anxiety or lack luster moods.
In fact this strain will definitely get you back on the road again no matter what ails you! Humming a Stardust Melody from my last strain, I stepped out of my comfort zone and picked up Purple Punch. This strain hit me with a one-two punch to the head of euphoric lifted effects, which I had never experienced before! It's taste and aroma hit me just as hard as it effects with wafts of sweet berry similar to a berry sweet tart.
This strain carries a punch and comes with a warning that it will slay you and like most indicas, you will end up in the couch. It is good to step out of your comfort zone every now and then, cause you never know what your missing if you don't! Go big or go home.. There's a Full Moon tonight so I thought it only fitting that I write about a "celestial" strain!
I found that starry strain at my new favorite store in La Mesa and it was Haley's Comet. Haley's Comet is sativa strain that is also high in cbd's, which is why it is truly a super star strain. Believe it or not, I am usually not seeking an intoxicating high and usually just need a little help with my free floating anxiety and lack of focus ability.
Finally, the high CBD levels in this strain offer the user the added benefit of body comfort and all the other healing properties unique to CBD's. I really like this strain and if I can ever find it again, you can bet that I'll pick it up and experience it's powerful effects. It's like catching a comet in the sky, elusive but so very memorable! My next strain may not have been based in the heavens but it was heavenly to taste and to experience.
This bud has an insanely delicious flavor! Sherbet Cookies is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as chronic pain, migraines, eye pressure or glaucoma, fibromyalgia, insomnia, and depression.
I just like the flavor and the happy effects. Sometimes that's what's it all about-does it make you happy! Happy Earth Day and belated ! There is always so much to celebrate in this beautiful life, including craft cannabis! This week I celebrated with some new and somewhat exotic strains.
Of course, I did not find them in a "legal, licensed shop"! The only cannabis flower that you will find in those stores these days are mediocre, plastic wrapped flower. It seems as if legalizing cannabis has somehow "dumbed" down the real essence of cannabis and turned it into vanilla, uninspired and "uncrafted". So, I still venture out of the lines and find myself some unique and truly crafted cannabis. Hawaiian Landrace is the first strain I chose for it's beauty in color, smell and size.
I had never heard the term landrace before but the buds were so unique and stunning that I knew there was something special behinds it lineage. Upon researching the term, I found out that a landrace strain is a cannabis strain that has developed over centuries in a particular natural environment.
It is a strain that has been allowed to grow naturally without human intervention, like most of the strains available on today's market. One strain, one environment.
To me, the landrace strains are similar to "heirloom" vegetables in that they have never been hybridized with another strain. To me, heirloom vegetables are usually incredibly flavorful and delicious. It's flavor is mildly cheesy and it's effects are great to just chill in a cerebral state. Although I was impressed with its beauty and lineage, I wasn't impressed with its non committal effects-unfortunately, in this case my eyes did deceive me.
But, there's always the next strain. Moving on from my disappointing landrace strain, I chose Berner's cookies. It is a heavy-hitting version of Girl Scout Cookies and its power is not to be underestimated. It's flavor is piney, fruity and fresh.
It's effects are happy and will definitely make the laughter flow. Mustard has a mild flavor that will increase in pungency in maturity. Guava plants will be the star attraction when grown in a bright sunroom. The tropical tree needs plenty of space, light and warmth. Unless you live in a climate with warm winters, bring the plant inside during late fall. Ripe guavas have a sweet, minty, pineapple flavor. Native to China, kumquats are a slow-growing citrus.
Fruits are small and egg-shaped with sweet skins and sour flesh. Kumquat trees are hardy in zones , but able to withstand temperatures as low as 20 degrees F. In cooler climates, they are best grown as container trees that get brought inside during winter.
Kumquats typically produce fruits starting in the fall, continuing through early spring. Calamondin are a small citrus with fruits that taste like a sour tangerine. The skin can also be eaten and is sweet, balancing out the sourness of the fruit.
They are easy to grow and can be kept indoors, but prefer to be grown outdoors, if climate permits, in full sun to part shade. Kohlrabi, which translates to "turnip cabbage" in German, is a small, sputnik-shaped green or purple member of the Brassica family.
It can be eaten raw or cooked, and tastes a lot like broccoli stems. Purple varieties are slower to mature, but hardier. For a fall harvest, sow seeds in late summer; for spring harvests, sow seeds a few weeks before your last average frost date. Jerusalem artichokes, called sunchokes, look similar to ginger roots, with light brown skin which may be tinged with color depending on the soil they are grown in.
Sunchokes are better-adapted to the cooler climates of the northern United States. The tuber tastes similar to a water chestnut and can be eaten fresh or pickled. Home Outdoors Flowers and Plants. Pinterest Facebook Twitter Email. Broccoli Romanesco Romanesco looks a little like a cactus, with tight clusters of bright-green cone-shaped heads. Try the plants in hanging baskets or support them on trellises. Tender and sweet, Brokali 'Apollo' is a cross between Calabrese broccoli and kale.
The side shoots are just as flavorful as the tops. Expect to harvest this gourmet green in 50 to 60 days from sowing. With their reddish-purple skins and yellow-orange interiors, 'Dragon' carrots are unusual and beautiful. Ready in 90 days from sowing, they have a sweet-to-spicy flavor.
Bicolored Kalettes are a cross between kale and Brussels sprouts and have a nutty-sweet taste. This collection from Johnny's Selected Seeds includes 3 varieties that mature throughout the season for an extended harvest. Vigorous and easy to grow, 'Tronchuda Beira,' a hybrid kale, tolerates more heat than most kales.
They taste mild, tender, and sweet. Perilla, also called shiso, is an herb from the mint family. Red perilla has an anise-like flavor, while green perilla tastes more like cinnamon. In Japan, green perilla is used in sushi, soups, and tempura, or added to rice. In Korea, a larger variety is marinated and used as a wrap for barbecue or eaten raw in salads. Plant the seeds in spring and allow about 70 days to harvest. The plants are prolific and heat-tolerant. Saute it with garlic and soy sauce, or snip the leaves to add to salads.
This "baby" choy can take light frosts. Uzbekistan is the home of this flavorful, hardneck garlic, 'Pskem River.
