Kerala Chellakutti

The Kerala Chellakutti is a classic pure South Indian Sativa with a spicy/hazy taste and extremely energetic effects. This rare strains comes from a remote mountainous area near the Tamil Nadu border.

Unlike many Kerala Cultivars, the Kerala Chellakutti does not have a fruity smell. The Aromas are reminiscent of a delicious blend of spice and pepper with an underlying Hazy flavor.

The effect is long lasting but totally devoid of body stone or tiredness at the end. It is a potent strain but with positive cheerful effects as this Sativa is uplifting and social.

Kerala is the wettest state of India. Therefore, the Kerala Chellakutti can withstand heavy rains and is highly mold resistant. Nonetheless, the internodal spacing is relatively short compared to most tropical Sativas.

The vigorous Chellakutti will thrive in a wet and warm environment such as a greenhouse. Despite the fact that its very long flowering time and tremendous flowering stretch make it a challenge to grow indoors, experienced indoor growers can also achieve great results.

Because we have carefully culled out all the mutated plants, hermaphrodites and weak specimens while performing a controlled open pollination indoors, growers can expect a high sexual stability as well as very few undesirable phenotypes.

The optimal light cycle indoors is 11 hours of light for 13 hours of darkness. That way, the plants can flower a bit faster and also express themselves fully.

The smell is very discrete at first as the Kerala Chellakutti only starts producing trichomes late into its flowering cycle. Around the 13 th to 16 th week of flowering. Then, this tropical lady starts revealing its beauty.

Endangered Cultivars

Although the state of Kerala is famous for being home to some of the most potent Indian Landraces, most of the local landraces are in danger of extinction.

In kerala, these long flowering varieties are gradually being replaced by quicker flowering strains. On top of that, the habitat loss due to urbanization as well as the harsh eradication campaigns have caused this cultivar to be on the brink of extinction.

Our friend from the Collector’s Collective (Coco Genes) acquired the seeds directly from local Kerala farmers wanting to help preserve this endangered cultivar.

Even though this crazy psychedelic Sativa can be challenging to tame, the growers with enough patience and skills will be rewarded by a burst of energy and a memorable cerebral high!

Kerala seeds

Kerala Gold is an equatorial heirloom variety, characterized as a Narrow leaf drug producing cultivar. It is said to have branched out from Idukki Gold a pure equatorial landrace, now extinct.

Kerala is situated at the southern-western ghats of India near the Malabar coast, and sees little to no change in daytime light duration, as it is only about 9 degrees North from equator, with a mild tropical-wet climate and moderate temperature throughout the year.

Kerala Gold plants can be grown easily at any time of the year in its place of origin, but January is usually seen as the most popular choice for harvesting. The humidity and amount of precipitations increases by 10-15% from April, gradually peaking at monsoon July-August and with the passing of monsoon to northern part of India, the humidity levels starts to go down and hit the lowest in January and February.

First 5-7 weeks of flowering is spent in stretching and creating internodal space for flower bracts. The parigonal bracts swell towards the very end of flowering and give of a yellowish/golden tint, caused by the majority of amber trichome heads and ample coverage of unusually long dried stigmas wrapped around it. Although it is not a vast difference like many highland regions but with relatively cooler nights in the last 4-5 week of the flowering plants transpire a bit more than wetter monsoon months, adding much needed girth to the budding flowers.

Kerala Gold features 16- 20 weeks of flowering with moderate to high yields. The strain shows great resistance to mold/powdery mildew, and pests in general. Even when grown outside of its natural habitat (at latitudes as high as 43 degrees), Kerala Gold thrives and flowers properly within 16-20 weeks depending on the phenotypic selection.

It produces an invigorating mental high, with euphoric onset which can continue for 2 hours. The terpenes are floral, woody, sour, spicy, incensey and,sandal.
