Bright orange pistils and icy looking trichromes complete the look of this magnificent variety. As you might expect the aroma is hugely sweet and reminiscent of the original pink bubblegum many will remember from their younger years, balanced by a mild earthiness that counter balances the sweetness perfectly.
