The Chiquita Banana strain of cannabis features a composition of 33%-35% THC. This strain, which grows as a bud covered with shimmering crystal trichomes, creates a euphoric mood. It isn’t surprising, that this strain is often used to treat patients with symptoms of depression. Due to the happiness it produces, it is a strain that is very much in demand.
Chiquita Banana is widely available in the state of California, but in other states, its quite rare. It is also called C. Banana, and is bred by Utopia Farms in Santa Cruz, California. It is a cross between OG Kush and Utopia’s very own Banana strain.
The plant grows tall and yields large and dense trichome-frosted buds with red-haired stigmas. Flowering occurs in a 60-day period, grown indoors or outdoors. The plant grows well in a hot, humid climate too. It has a peppery and tropical-inspired aroma. With the word “banana” in its name, its taste tends towards more of a citrus flavor with a hint of sweetness.
