Choosing to combine two of our most unique, flavourful and frosty strains back in 2018 to create Illuminauto #31 turned out to be the masterstroke we knew it would be. Like the Ronseal of the Mephisto catalogue, it does exactly what it says on the tin. Not exactly the succulent Chinese meal you might expect, instead, she’s sweet and fruity, with a sour tang making her the perfect nightcap strain or suppertime dessert.
Sour Stomper is such a standout strain in the catalogue, with its unique growth structure, layerings of frost and ice, and strong grape scent. We wanted to make a cross that could enhance some of these features, doubling the grape with a grapefruit, blueberry and fruit punch sweetness, while retaining a tang and twang with her Sour Crack lineage. A delight for any indica lover out there who wants a mouth full of flavour with every pull.
Sweet ‘n’ Sour in typical Mephisto Genetics fashion is a frosty frosty little madam! She grows with nice vigour, displaying a nice blend of indica and sativa traits and has the potential to stack rapidly to produce an array of long colas. Alternatively, she can be heavily trained to produce a flat blanket of sparkling buds.
Sweet ‘n’ Sour starts producing frost early on, and her aromas will take you on a journey throughout the grow. Ranging from floral, to sweet, progressing to more outright fruity guavas with a pinch of sourness. The bud-to-leaf ratio of Sweet ‘n’ Sour is frankly exceptional, so whilst big yields are possible, don’t be worried about a stint in trim jail, it’ll be more akin to a short stay in a white-collar prison with tennis courts and day release.
