Cream Mandarine XL Auto® is a tall stemmed 4th generation high yielding autoflowering strain. It is born from the cross between our Cream Mandarine Auto® (SWS29) and an elite clone of Super Tai’98.

Its mostly sativa features and its tones of wood, red fruit and spicy aromas come from the Tai ’98 genetics. While the most indica traits, its high yielding feature and the mandarine citrus tones are inherited from Cream Mandarine Auto®
