“One of the most often overlooked elements of the DHK was the ability of its members to grow out multiple identical packs of seeds, compare the best females in order to find true keepers. The DHK “Tangerine Haze” is one such example. Members picked up the original G13/Haze x NYCD from Soma Seeds in 03-04 and over the next year each grew out his pack of seeds, compared the best females, and it was obvious which female stood out (at least in flavor). Nicknamed Tangerine Haze, this strain is still fairly hoarded even though it has been passed freely for the last couple of years. You guys can thank Erawk for that find!”
The strain made its way from the West Coast of Canada to Boulder and Nederland, Colorado, where it became something of a legend among the growers and connoisseurs of the area.
Scott of Rare Dankness, speaking on the strain’s genesis:
The smell of Tangerine Haze is legendary as being one of the few fruit-named strains that is a perfect replica of its namesake, filling the sinuses with a pungent and uncanny tangerine smell with a floral backdrop. If it’s let go beyond 65 days, it often takes on an astringent quality, so most growers like to take her down early if anything.
Tangerine Haze isn’t the strongest strain around, but it lives up to its Haze name, uplifting the user’s mindstate and filling the body and mind with a buzzing energy. Great for creative pursuits, outdoor activities, and anything that can be enhanced with a slight shift of perspective – Tangerine Haze is a wonderful daytime strain that leaves the user feeling capable and at-ease mentally.
Tangerine Haze grows tall and works best when it’s flowered early on from clone, when the plant is approximately 10” and has just established itself.
