Gelato is a hybrid created by crossing the fruity indica Sunset Sherbert with the flavor-engineered parents Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. This strain is excellent for social use because it has a well-balanced, mellow high and an all-around palatable flavor profile. In honor of the iconic player's jersey number, phenotype #33 of the Gelato flavor has been given the moniker Larry Bird by San Francisco-based inventors Cookie Fam Genetics. This strain's THC content ranges from 20% to 25% and provides an indica-leaning high. Gelato can be tough to cultivate and is not necessarily suggested for beginners. You can grow it indoors or outside. Indoor grow operations are easier to manage and can accommodate the medium-height plants; outdoor growing requires sustained warm and humid temperatures about 75°F. Growers should expose plants to colder temperatures right before the flowering stage to promote the aforementioned anthocyanin pigments in order to bring out the full purple potential of this strain. When planted inside, gelato blooms in 8 to 9 weeks, and when grown outdoors, it is ready for harvest in mid-October. Despite the lack of knowledge on this strain's cultivation, we do know that its parents, Thin Mint and Sunset Sherbert, have yields that are above average. Finally, the pungency of this strain becomes apparent during the growing process; therefore, indoor growers should use odor-control devices such carbon air filters or exhaust fans.
