It wasnít a bad strain just one I didnít like the taste of.
See some people love Blue Cheese Dressing and it makes others cringe the same can be said for flavors in Cannabis I just found this out to late. It did teach me that there are many many palettes and everyone has different taste. No longer do I rush so fast to judgment based on taste. Black Russian always got me really high if I actually smoked a few bowls I just rarely got past the taste of the first bowl.
Once I relocated out west I was able to find an amazing tasting Urkle female that also turns an amazing color but nothing like the Neon Purple of Black Russian. The Urkle was however much much better pot and the strain we created with it Querkle is an amazing Indica with purple traits and a Grape taste that I enjoy every day! So I donít hate purple anymore and thatís a very good thing. In Fact a new hybrid created using Querkle, Qleaner has become one of my favorite strains of all time! It taste like Grape Nehi Soda but has the added potency of Jacks Cleaner!
Great insight. This one post helped me understand a bit ore about peoples "cannibis palettes".
I am the opposite, I love the taste of Kush/Chem, and dispised "purp" for a long time. That is, until I got a hold of Erkle. To me, the Erkle was /is the best tasting "purp" strain I have personally smoked.
It's funny, folks either love Kush/Chem, or they just don't like it, and it is all due to taste. Your Bleu Cheese Dressing analogy was perfect.
Your Querkle is a good representation of what a good Erkle tastes like, and was an easy one to grow. I did find that the yeild was smaller then a regular Erkle,but still Dank.
I applaud you in your efforts to bring the taste of "Erkle" to the masses, as we in Cali are friggin spoiled and alot of the "clone-only" strains do not get a chance to go to other states/countries, so it was nice to see a breeder go with that strain rather then the Chem/Kush knockoffs.
Currently, there has been a Mango strain I have been seeing from a few friends in da Bay, and though this is an old strain, it has been "refined" and the new "version" is some of the best tasting herb I have smoked.
Hopefully, I will be picking up some cuts today.
I would love to see you do a project with the Mango, as it would compliment your current line up and I think would be a great addition to TGA strains.
