The (paternal P1) father is two individual male Deep Chunks. Deep Chunk is a long IBL Hashplant indica from Afghanistan introduced and inbred by Tom Hill. Since getting Deep Chunk about a decade ago I have inbred her 3 or 4 times, leaning towards the larger sized and larger yielding purple phenotypes with the greatest resin production. I originally got these DC seeds from my old buddy “Moonshineman” (Jay) who got them directly from Tom Hill.
The (maternal P1) mother, KOS’s own Cherry Thai that I made over a decade ago. She is a hybrid of Cherry Bomb and two different Thai females. The Cherry Bomb was an F3 out of Hawaii that combined 3 landrace/cultivar Hawaiian sativas and the legendary Cherry AK47. One of the Thai females was my own “Batdambang” Thai I got from my cousin directly from Vietnam, a true deadly gooey Thai indeed. The other Thai female was a legit Juicyfruit Thai (the 14-week version) from a Holland breeder connection I had.
She is very easy to grow. There are at least 3 phenotypes I know of. A faster, harder hitting pheno that finishes at 60 days. She is shorter, with less hairs (pistils) in her flowers. She is a very hard hitter and has high body impact as well as head. There is also a giant phenotype, and of course the most common ‘regular’ phenotype. All have huge, dense colas.
The Chunky Cherry Thai’s potency is severe, and on the very spacy side as well. Peeps that get paranoid from some sativas should approach this one with caution the first time trying her out. A lot of fun is what this variety is, hell I’m a super-Thai fan and there are two of the best Thai strains I’ve ever had in this cross. It took me the first half of 2019 to select the Cherry Thai female P1 mother for this cross, and the Deep Chunk were selected for resin production, size, yield, and purple expressions.
SPECIAL GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:
Please do not sprout these on a 24/0 photoperiod and KOS recommends a photoperiod of 16/8 for sprouting and until 30 days old Never use a 24/0 photoperiod. Always allow plants (or clones of plants; and clones are the same age that the seed plant would be no matter how many clones of clones) to get at least 55 days old from sprouting, before starting to flower for maximum resin production. KOS always recommends organically growing our gear for the full appreciation of smells and flavors.
The Chunky Cherry Thai is a true exotic and a must have for any true connoisseur, in my opinion. Stupendous possibilities here. Many of you may remember one of my older crosses the Chunky Cherry Malawi, and this one is a more potent and more tasty/smelly version of that. I would for sure try and only flower clones of these in containers, as seedling plants may prove to be seriously unruly in containers, and clones are always more potent when grown in containers than seedling plants, in my experience.
