NYC Diesel is a multiple award-winning 60% Sativa dominant hybrid that was created by Soma’s Sacred Seeds. The Dutch breeder’s story on the history of this strain is that it came from some bagseed that was given to him by a friend who had recently returned from New York City. It is highly probable that the bagseed was an S1 of one of the many Diesels floating around NYC at that time.
In an effort to create this strain in seed form the Diesel S1 was crossed to an Afghani/Hawaiian male (Shantibaba) and the progeny of this cross were then grown out and a male with Diesel expressions was selected and backcrossed to the original Diesel S1 female. This strain has quickly become one of Soma’s Sacred Seed’s top-selling varieties. It’s also a popular choice amongst breeders working new hybrids.
