GROWN BY re up farms
For May’s first ever Seed-to-Sale Issue, our team had the pleasure of highlighting one of RE UP Farms’ newest elusive offerings: Mint Chocolate Gelato. Over the past year-and-a-half, RE UP Farms pheno hunted between seven and eight different phenos to select one keeper, offering one of the best Gelato profiles we have come across to date.
red by Exotic Genetix, Mint Chocolate Gelato is a cross of Gelato and Mint Chocolate Chip. This complex mixture combines Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC with SinMint Cookies and Green Ribbon.
Upon opening up a jar, the nose is filled with a scent reminiscent of an ice cream shop – rich, sweet and velvety. Each nug is hand-trimmed to perfection, all the while retaining freshness and remaining extremely sticky. This trichome flaunting cultivar nearly makes your eyes pop out of your head, as the contrast of lime green and dark purple hues complement the rich orange pistils.
After taking a few snaps out of a freshly cleaned bong, my mouth was coated with a waffle cone-like flavor, a taste that I often get from Sunset Sherbet strains like Gelato. This strain also leaves a bit of a citrusy taste on your palate, indicative of the Green Ribbon lineage.
I was sent into in a rather relaxing and space-like daze, as this strain helped alleviate anxiety and take my mind away to a happy place during these uncertain times that we are all currently experiencing.
It is more than apparent after consumption that RE UP Farms is only using organic inputs, as well as being loyal to the soil. With their plants being hand-watered and cared for daily, you can truly feel all of the love put into each marvelous genetic RE UP Farms has in their garden.
I would recommend this cultivar to those who are looking to unwind and take a load off. Check out RE UP Farms’ other astonishing offerings like Bachelor Party and Wedding Cake the next time you are browsing through flower options. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for new strains releasing later this summer including Runtz, Biscotti, Frosted Zkittles, Raspberry Mochi and much more!
