A homie gifted me some beans of this strain. He made a S4 outdoor in the alps and always selected the fastest flowering phenotypes.
So I can't tell how the original perform outdoor, but the one I got is a real banger. Short and strong growth, incredible coffe/pine aroma and heavyheavy stoned (Body and Mind). It's a great smoke for the night time. Also the mold resistance is stunning - as a plant wich has real compact buds and got some bad weather in the last week of flower, there where no mold or budrot on any part of the plants. this comment

This is not the legendary white widow you know of the good old coffeeshop days.

Its more sativa and has airy buds. It flowers way to long. 9-10 weeks!!

This is no cashcrop strain and in no way i would say this is white widow. Out of 11 females just 1 finished in 8 weeks and had no yield. They all smelled like carrots and hash. No widow smell we know of.4 plants where even showing male flowers at 3 weeks 12/12. Real bad strain but i must say good marketing. this comment
