Watermelon Zkittlez Grow Report

Over the past few years, the West Coast of California has produced aromatic cannabis strains with names reminiscent of iconic desserts. The Zkittlez strain, inspired by the multicolored candies, stands as a prime example.

Naturally, such a cannabis gem is a beacon for global breeders seeking the perfect hybridization partner. For instance, Barney’s Farm creatively crossed it with the renowned U.S. strain, Watermelon. The result?

An almost evenly balanced hybrid (55% indica, 45% sativa) that showcases an exceptional yield of 550 gm/m2. Exceptional cultivation could even push this to a staggering 800 grams.

With just nine weeks of flowering, this strain achieves impressive biomass, growing to a medium height with a sativa-like stature. Its cultivation difficulty rating of 2 out of 5 means even novices can achieve good results.

Outdoors, it flourishes, completing by late September and yielding up to 1000 grams per plant. The flavor? A delightful mix of watermelon with hints of grape, and its fragrance evokes a tropical fruit basket.

Vegetative Stage: Strong, Bushy, Synchronous Growth

The allure of Watermelon Zkittlez was too much for The Doc to resist. After easily germinating two feminized seeds, typical for Barney’s Farm strains, he noticed quick growth. As the lights switched to a 12/12 cycle, the plants, growing synchronously, reached heights of 33 and 35 cm.

Flowering Stage – Umbrella-Like Canopy and Resinous Buds

During flowering, the plants flourished, their branches spreading out like an open umbrella. By week six, the buds were dripping with resin, giving a promise of quality yields.

The Doc noted an intoxicating fruity aroma that suggested a blend of watermelon, nectarine, pineapple, lemon, and black currant.

Harvest – Punctual Maturity and Impressive Yields

Surprisingly, the plants matured in just 60 days, earlier than Barney’s stated timeline. Their structure was abundant with buds: the main colas were complemented by 18 impressive side tops. The final heights were a manageable 80 and 85 cm. The dry weight exceeded The Doc’s expectations, with 106 and 115 grams respectively, exuding a multi-fruit aroma that seemed almost foreign to cannabis.

Experience – Electrifying and Euphoric

A single hit from a 0.5-gram joint was a burst of fruity flavor. The invigorating effects manifested as an energy surge, revitalizing The Doc after a long day. Halfway through, his uplifted mood prompted a cleaning spree around his apartment. Later, he prepared a special risotto, and then settled into a comfortable relaxation.

In conclusion, with Watermelon Zkittlez, Barney’s Farm has crafted a masterpiece: a fruitful strain that’s productive, has a reasonable flowering time, and offers an invigorating effect ideal for activity. Truly, it’s a delightful cannabis concoction!
