Alien Genetics crossed Lemon Alien Dawg with Tahoe OG to create Starfighter, a renowned indica-leaning hybrid strain that the breeder claims has a taste and aroma of raspberry sorbet and hints of lemon. While the original Starfighter phenotype has been discontinued, different variations of this strain have made their way into dispensaries across various legal states.
Starfighter is reportedly easy to grow, but tends to thrive in a sunny environment that’s not too humid. Starfighter is ready to harvest after an eight-to-nine-week flowering cycle indoors or around mid-October outside in the Northern Hemisphere, yielding copious amounts of medium-sized bright green buds.

Based on photos of the original Starfighter phenotype featured on Alien Genetics’ Instagram account, the plant produces moderately dense colas flush with starry trichomes, reddish stigmas, and purple streaks across the dark green fan leaves.
With THC levels said to range between 16% and 24%, one sample of Starfighter analyzed by the cannabis testing lab Analytical 360, had 19% THC and a terpene profile dominated by humulene and caryophyllene.
