Mango from KC Brains

Afghani and KC-33 lines combine for one of the tastiest indicas you're likely to ever grow. She'll have you horizontal in no time at all, with a dreamy but intense physical stone that will prevent you from doing anything even remotely useful -- or caring about your incapacitation. A great respite for the weary and psychologically embattled worker bee who had a rough day at the office. An extraordinarily easy grow inside or out and one of the most flavorful indicas you'll ever smoke.

Odor Description: None really, a slight smell of vanilla
Taste: Somewhat smooth, it SLIGHTLY tasted like creme

January, 2003

Veg Stage:
Germ rate was 3/5. The female to male ratio was 2/3. The Mango was not all that vigorous in veg...

Pheno 1
It was tall and very lanky. Looked nothing like the other pheno. I have no idea how it was classified as a indica. It grew like a friggin jungle sativa. The genetic variation of this strain was unreal. The 2 phenos looked nothing a like. This strain is far from being stabilized. This is what you can expect for the price I suppose. (Killed at day 70 of bloom was not what I was looking for what so ever. No way was this a indica)

Pheno 2
This pheno was much more uniform in growth. Looked and resembled a deep indica. I honestly have to question whether the phenos were both the same strain. They look absolutely nothing a like.

Bloom stage:

Pheno 1
This one was killed early because it was nothing I wanted to grow. It was a monster 8 feet tall with the bend tech. I cut it early because it took up way to much room and was a horrible lagger. Smoke was much worse then pheno 2. This pheno was horrible.


Pheno 2
This one grew more uniform than the other pheno. The maturation time was also much faster. The yield was horrible though. It was 1 - 1.5 ounces (no CO2).


Final evaluation:

The smoke was better then the first phenotype, but nothing mango about it. There was NO fruit flavor. The high was almost seemed existent. The body high does last awhile though. It just has no power to it. The appearance is the best part of the weed. The calyxes are real fat and the buds are very crystallized. The phenotype (phenotype 2) I grew out a couple times was a little better than average. It did not deserve a 3rd place at CC.

Report 2 of 3From croman58
Vintage: Not Listed
Effect: Somewhat couchlock
Odor Description: Very nice tropical/perfume
Taste: Fruity, very nice on the palate
Garden Style for This Report: Bush


5 for 5 germ, all five sprouted, 2 males, 1 hermie (my fault), 2 females.
Out of all five I observed three phenos, Indica dominant, Indica/Sativa, Sativa dominant.

Sativa dominant: light green leaf, skinny leaf. Hermied at 2 weeks flower, culled. Only one I had in DWC. Massive stretch.

Indica/sat: both males and one female displayed these traits. Dark green medium width leaf, branchy, thick stalks, somewhat lanky with nice even distance between nodes. Good resin production, short trichomes. This pheno displayed good conformity/even growth. Light airy buds.

The taste and smell are top notch, very pleasurable smoke. Tropical/fruity. The stone is medium in potency, even buzz. I can smoke it through out the day, but by early eve it's lights out. Good weed for part time smokers/chicks.

I harvested this pheno at 56 days, clear trichomes, very few cloudy. I could have taken her another week as I did with the Indica pheno.

Indica pheno: I say Indica, because during veg this plant looked exactly like the Golden Skush I had growing with it. Tight compact plant, lighter green wide leaf. When she went to flowering, the center of the plant just shot up, ended up the tallest plant in the grow. When the bud started packing on, she displayed some skinny sativa leaf for a week, then back to a wider leaf... Never was a lanky plant, just the center/colas shot up. Nice thick stalk. The bud on this girl was denser, and very pine cone shaped. Good even growth with a very nice center cola.

Again the taste and smell just some of the best smelling bud I've ever come across. This pheno's smell was so good it was almost orange like with a breeze blowing through it, no shit very nice. The buzz was pretty much similar to the other girl, little more head, and did last 30 minutes longer. This girl is a nose tingler, the aroma gets me sneezing like a motherfucker.

Harvested this girl at 61 days, all cloudy trichomes with some clear still there.


I grew these plants using training and extensive pruning. These photos are not typical of the strain's growth pattern.

KC Brains has always been a fav breeder of mine. These mango seeds germinated in Black gold germinating mix no problem. I vegged them for 24 days under 24 hours of compact fluro lighting. then transplanted them into 5 gallon pots during flowering.

I cannot beleive how much these plants explode in just a matter of 40 days. They went from plants to solid thick pole straight nuggets in a month and 10 days!

HELLO that's amazing. I must admit i'm not a fan of pure indica strains but this one is quite nice. It's good for a nighttime smoke. Me and my girlfriend like to wind down with a bowl of Super Haze, followed by a nice nugget of Mango. She's absolutley a day ender NOT a day starter. DO NOT smoke this shit before work and expect to keep your job long. (unless you work at a headshop or are a full time medical grower) It's very dreamy and lazy, that's the best i can describe it's high as.

There are several ideas that are formed in your head but because of the thumping indica heritage you never quite get motivated enough to do anything about them. Very tastey though, not tasting as much like "mango" as i would of expected, and i was surprised, i pride myself in bringing out the FULL flavor or buds through organic chemistry and temp control. tastes a little acrid, hints of fruit peels like dry orange,mango a little berry but not much. Undertones of grape definitely. A great producer in a very short time, and if you're looking for some lazy sunday afternoon pot, this is it. Props to KC on this one, the yeild is seriously something that has to be experienced to be beleived, i average 3-4 ounces per 3 foot plant. often times more. Gorgeous.
