Kerala Chellakutti is an increasingly rare landrace sativa from the Southwestern Ghats of Kerala, near the border with Tamil Nadu in southern India, a remote mountainous region. It is a highly mould-resistant, cerebral strain that can withstand dry, wet, warm and hot climate conditions.
Kerala Chellakutti is a long-flowering strain that takes between 18 - 25 weeks to finish flowering. It is ideally suited to the heat and humidity of a greenhouse and experienced growers will also get great results indoors with patience. It is recommended to provide 11 hours of light per 24 which will help flowering to establish quite early and also help to keep its height under some constraint. Yields are average. Unlike most other South Indian varieties Kerala Chellakutti isn't fruity but rather spicy, Haze-y and metallic in flavour.
The effect is expansive and long-lasting appearing to be without either ceiling or any associated 'come down' tiredness or sense of lethargy.
Pure South Indian landraces are becoming rare due to the combined influences of eradication programmes, urbanisation and the introduction of non-native, faster-flowering varieties. These seeds are preserved to mitigate this and prevent the loss of heirloom varieties to history.
A process of controlled open pollination allowed unstable and hermaphroditic plants to be removed from the pool from which these seeds have been produced.
