Lemon Tree Strain History
Lemon Tree is a well-known strain, yet its origin is a mystery. Some growers believe this cross was created by an enigmatic group of farmers in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. The farmers had been cultivating marijuana for more than twenty years when they decided to make a cross of Lemon Skunk and Sour Diesel. From this hybrid, Lemon Tree was born.
This cultivar quickly earned a reputation as a reliable cash crop and, in 2014, it won the Best Hybrid award at the Seattle Cannabis Cup. In the same year, Lemon Tree won first place in the San Francisco High Times Cannabis Cup’s Best Hybrid category, further cementing its reputation as an elite cultivar.
Lemon Tree Strain Info
Lemon Tree is a balanced hybrid of Lemon Skunk and East Coast Sour Diesel. Lemon Skunk, the parent of Lemon Tree, is a classic Skunk #1 phenotype from California that was popularized by a grower known as Lemon Man. This strain was later popularized by prominent breeders such as DNA Genetics and Greenhouse Seeds.
East Coast Sour Diesel, the other parent of Lemon Tree, is a Legendary Sativa-dominant strain that is said to have originated in New York during the 1990s. Although its lineage is unclear, many believe Sour Diesel is a hybrid of Chemdawg and Super Skunk.
Lemon Tree offers a blend of Indica and Sativa genetics. This is apparent in the strain’s big, fluffy, Sativa-Esque colas are supported by its thick, Indica-like stalks. It is also apparent in the strain’s potent effects, delivering a well-balanced high that is both relaxing and invigorating.
Lemon Tree Strain Review
Lemon Tree brings together the sweet, fruity flavor of Lemon Skunk with the funky, fuel-like aroma of Sour Diesel. This strain fragrance comes on with a pungent note of tangy citrus that has more than a hint of sour lemon. As it settles in, there are also undertones of kerosene and skunk. Despite its funky flavor, the smoke is smooth on the lungs, and the taste is sweet and earthy on the exhale.
Lemon Tree’s high is refreshingly invigorating. The initial cerebral stimulation brings on waves of creativity and happiness while your mood remains lifted and euphoric for hours on end. This strain is one to try if you’re looking for a strong Sativa effect that doesn’t knock your socks off right off the bat. Instead, it builds gradually throughout the day into an uplifting cerebral buzz with a clear-headed, creative edge. Its uplifting effects make Lemon Tree a great choice for an all-day smoke.
Growing Lemon Tree
The Lemon Tree strain is an easy cultivar to grow, making it an excellent option for novice growers. This strain is highly resistant to mold and disease while remaining relatively low maintenance.
Lemon Tree plants are hardy and can easily produce potent harvests indoors where the environment can be carefully controlled. It’s also possible to yield impressive results outdoors, where the plants may grow to a gargantuan size.
Lemon Tree plants grow medium to tall, with strong branches and slender leaves. They produce a healthy amount of foliage while still allowing light to reach all parts of the plants. This strain flowers in eight weeks indoors and reaches maturity in the fall when grown outdoors. Lemon Tree flowers quickly, making it a good choice for growers in northern regions where plants are at risk for early fall frosts.
Like many Sativa-dominant hybrids, Lemon Tree plants tend to branch out quite intensely. This means that growers often end up with multiple colas forming on each plant. This cultivar is also known to stretch, so growers should plan accordingly. Training techniques such as topping and super cropping will help control the vertical growth.
Lemon Tree Strain Yield
Lemon Tree produces a large yield despite its short flowering time. This strain averages a yield of about five ounces per square foot indoors and approximately 16 ounces per plant outdoors. Its fast and bountiful bud production makes Lemon Tree an excellent choice for commercial cannabis growers.
