The strain itself is dark green and blue, almost a deep purple shade among its lumpy flower, with orange hairs and a dusting of incredibly sticky profile. Gelato’s flower tends to be small but they have the thick and dense structure. This is a strain with immediate visual appeal: bright orange hairs stand out against forest green leaves that are accented by shades of deep purple. The purple hues come about when high concentrations of pigments called anthocyanins are stimulated by cold weather in the vegetative stage. Although the flower itself is sticky, short stalks on the plant mean that this strain has a less frosty appearance than many others. Cured properly, flowers of Gelato have a predominant smell of pungent citrus, compliments of fruity parent strain Sunset Sherbert.
