Magic Melon Strain Genetics

Is Magic Melon an Indica or Sativa?

Magic Melon is a 60/40 Sativa-dominant hybrid of Mango Trees, Honeydew, and Mango Sherbet.  

Mango Trees is a flavorful strain that can completely turn your mood around for the better. Be careful as this strain will build in its effects leading some to overconsume before the high has set in. The taste is that of mangos which is perfect or those that love strains that taste like citrus fruits.

Honeydew strain can help calm you down which can be important at the end of a stressful day. There is a spicy yet fruity taste that a number of people enjoy.

Mango Sherbet is a wake and bake strain that will give you a new sense of energy. Use this before going out on a hike or doing something else fun in nature.  

Finding strains with similar effects can help you build your smoking inventory. Couchlock is a great strain although less potent than Magic Melon with 16 percent THC. LA Sunshine is far less potent and great for beginners with 5 percent THC.

Magic Melon Strain Yield

Magic Melon can be grown indoors or outdoors although the yield will be far larger outdoors. Outdoor grows are usually larger due to the plant being able to grow freely. More sensitive strains should be grown indoors where more variables can be managed.

Indoors a grower can expect 0.5 to 1 ounce per square foot. Outdoors a grower can expect 2 to 3 ounces per square foot or around 550 grams per plant.

Yields are going to differ due to genetics, lighting, nutrients, and the amount of water they are getting. Each strain is different as some could have their growth inhibited by watering too often. Getting advice from an experienced grower is imperative as they can help let you know what you could be doing wrong simply by looking at your plants 

Keeping a growing journal can be immensely important as you can look back at previous grows of the same strain.

Magic Melon Strain Flowering Time

The flowering period of Magic Melon is 50 to 57 days.

The appearance is lime green nugs with hues of purple. There will be a decent covering of trichomes depending on the potency of the flower.

The strain is relatively easy to grow but you should probably reserve this strain for outdoor grows if possible due to the difference in yield.

THC Percentage Of The Magic Melon Strain

The THC percentage of Magic Melon is 15 to 25 percent. This is a wide range so it is always important to have your bud tested if growing it. If you are buying from a dispensary, take a look at the cannabinoids as 15 and 25 percent can offer a far different experience.
