Red Diesel is a creation of the Amsterdam-based seed bank Barney’s Farm, which crossed NYC Diesel with California Orange to form this cerebrally stimulating sativa-leaning bud. Pulling from its ancestors, Red Diesel carries an aroma of sweet orange and diesel fuel, translating into a flavor that the breeder described as earthy, citrusy, and all-around dank. One sample of Red Diesel analyzed by the cannabis testing lab MCR Labs had THC levels of 19.49%, along with a notable presence of myrcene, limonene, and other terpenes. According to Barney’s Farm, the strain grows to a medium height and produces high yields of large, resin-coated buds with prominent red stigmas within a 60-to-65-day flowering period. The breeder also notes that the productive side branches may require extra support during the last week of flowering. Red Diesel is suitable for either indoor or outdoor growing conditions. Cultivators can expect up to 600 grams per square meter when growing inside, and even more bountiful yield for outdoor plants harvested in mid-October in the Northern Hemisphere.
