Zambeza Seeds crossed three top-performing Indicas to create Vanilla Ice: Northern Light, Skunk, and Afghani. These reliable genetics literally produced tons of high-quality weed over the years, and are therefore the ideal basis for this Indica-dominant crossing. Expect reliable growth, sugar-coated buds, and flavors of fresh vanilla. Both Indica- and Hash lovers have just found their perfect match!
Vanilla Ice grows like a typical Indica and stays rather compact in size when it’s being cultivated indoors. Under artificial lighting heights of 60-90cm are common, whereas outdoor growers can expect to get significantly taller plants, with heights of up to 170-200cm. It’s not the highest-yielding strain in Zambeza’s catalogue but indoor yields of 550-650g/m², and outdoor yields of 450-550g per plant are still remarkable. Especially, when those numbers are put in relation to the short flowering time of approximately 55 days, and to the exceptional quality of the final product. When harvest is getting closer, one gets the impression of looking at a winter wonderland when taking a glimpse at Vanilla Ice. The frosted nuggets are phenomenal!
It’s also the unique taste, making Vanilla Ice a variety of excellence. Smokers can expect to get delightful sugary aromas with a decent amount of fresh vanilla pod. This Indica is not only tasteful, but also extremely resinous, and therefore a very option for growers that like to produce hash or other extracts. Effects of smoking Vanilla Ice include the feeling of being incredibly stoned and relaxed, but also focused and clear-minded when it’s necessary.
