I don’t know how to count that high - but I think we are 6/6 on all the sprouts
The reason I am so excited for these and will be searching for a male is simple. I work with Northern Cheeze Haze from Mephisto that was crossed with Purple Gorilla. Chunky haze? Yes it has some issues but there are some incredible plants that soak up every watt of light you can give it while exploding in growth unlike any other auto.
Northern Cheeze Haze "We selected our favourite lady from these F2 plants to keep a cut to work with. She was also trialled outside, and being a sativa hybrid (similar to amnesia in this respect) they kick into flower noticeably later, by several weeks in comparison to the indica, and OG varieties being run at the same time.
This actually meant whilst everything around it was battling the late summer/early autumn storms, the NCH was unphased, and again produced massive, tall plants packed of yield.
We wanted to start exploring and adding more sativa based autos to the Mephisto Catalogue, and decided to pair our most sativa auto; Fantasmo Express to our favourite sativa leaning photoperiod: Northern Cheese Haze.
And thus began the process to turn the NCH auto.
Over the resulting generations of breeding we witnessed all sorts of phenotypes emerging, larger structures familiar to the Fantasmo and hazey elements but with looser flower structures.
We shied away from utilsing those, in favour of more cheese-like compact but musky frosty buds. As with all Mephisto strains we prefer to breed for overall quality and then unique traits over outright size and yield: After all, who wants a plant rammed of flowers if the flowers aren’t up to par?
The outcome may not be the most hazey affair, but overall we’re very satisfied with the resulting creation and delighted to introduce her as one of our new Artisanal collection strains for 2017 - find out more below.
She’s also already been put to use for breeding work in a future project involving a super sativa seed club relic from holland ‘Old School Haze’.
Strain behaviour and structure:
Overall we’d classify the NCH as a medium sized strain, with potential to monster at a fast rate.
Seedling growth is pretty rampant, and the NCH expresses fair sized internodal gaps and she doesn’t put out much foliage meaning light penetrates through her well, which can result in a nice multi-branched plant without too much effort at all.
There’s a few phenotypes within the line, some bring about fatter shorter nugs, and others with more stretch but the end result is a very similar yield and they both have in common a very compact structure resulting in firm buds and a sublime end product.
She doesn’t afford too many trichomes on the fans but the flowers get quickly enveloped in a generous coating and the odor during growth is relatively low unless you set about touching and exploring a little too adventurously.
The flowers build solidly but can also make some small compact foxtails; Just something to note
When harvested though, even immediately if you get your nose in there you are welcomed by a beautifully spicey musky cheesey aroma.
Our Northern Cheese Haze automatic, was tested by Canna at an expo earlier in 2017 and a random bag bud came in at 21.07% Cannabinoid content, and this was from a breeding reject with no special treatment or harvest preparations or even a ripeness check.
So we think with a nice hand this variety could produce some very stellar results."

A real hazey auto - even though they say it isn’t the most hazey I have selected for the haze phenos. My friend whom I lost contact was the mastermind who made the Purple Gorilla gene swap to this haze.
Purple Gorilla "Auto Purple Amnesia broke all records when 1 plant produced a massive 681g in independent test conditions and Auto gorilla OG has been wowing growers since its release in 2017 with its incredible potency, easiness to grow and wonderful flavour. The combination of these 2 strains will not disappoint!
Like both its parents Auto Purple Gorilla shows explosive growth right from the start and does not require any special care or attention to give you great results. If she is treated well and given enough space and light to fulfil her potential then she will pay you back with incredible yields.
As Auto Gorilla Purple matures you will notice she has a very dominant main cola but also excellent side branching and she will get almost as wide as she is tall. Due to the incredible resin production that comes from the Gorilla Glue ancestry the buds on side branches can get super heavy and may need to be supported. The buds on this plant can get coke-bottle sized and are very dense with an incredible covering of sticky trichomes. Some of the Purple colouring of its parent has diminished but certain individuals will produce some beautiful purple buds.
Yields for the strain can range from 2-3 ounces per plant (60-90g) in a basic soil grow to 10 ounces per plant (280g) in a good quality hydro setup. All of this will be achieved in around 10 weeks from germination to harvest"
The combination of both were apparent. I select for f2 haze. I balance with f3 - I also select for the opposite because there are too many combinations that are ‘possibly good’. So I capture structure from the multi branching haze and throw fat resin colas on it.
From here we have a beautiful plant; I am flowering one, two three currently and pollenating two of them for f4.
Northern CHeeze Haze has parental lineage from NL5H - so it is only natural to create a new hybrid with adding the NL5HSS #5 pheno into it.
