Aromas and Flavors

The Junior Mints strain smells of sweet coffee with nutty notes. Also, it reveals a kick of sharp menthol-like smells and flavors on closer inspection, which is not surprising since this kush was named for the iconic candy. This refreshing aroma is not cool but sweet and accompanied by lemon and honey notes. These odors are a characteristic of particular terpenes – linalool, caryophyllene, and myrcene.

Cultivation Data

The 55/61-day flowering period is highly desired by impatient growers who want to get their crop as soon as possible. The time for harvest is 61 days after germination. Junior Mints can easily be grown both inside and outside, though the harvest will vary. Indoors, gardeners can expect 1-2 ounces of dried flowers per 1 ft2 planted area. The same plants will produce 10-15 oz./plant in an outdoor grow. They develop fat grape-shaped nugs with purple undertones.

One big plus with this marijuana is that it doesn’t grow particularly tall (just 30-60 inches), so you don’t need to top the branches to keep the height under control. It is ideal for limited indoor spaces.
