The Real McCoy weds a Hawaiian mother with the Skunk #1 male. This plant makes her mostly sativa heritage obvious in her growth habits, getting tall and light green in tone, with long slender leaves and moderately tight buds. Real McCoy stretches a bit in flowering, and develops side branches that can grow quite long. Gardeners can use pruning or bending and staking techniques to make this trait an advantage.
The flowering phase takes a minimum of 10 weeks, making the Real McCoy a better choice for indoors or greenhouse cultivation. Flying Dutchmen prefers growing in a completely organic garden suing soil, but also finds this variety to be happy as a greenhouse plant because the buds are loose enough to resist mold but dense enough to give moderate yields. Outdoor gardens in Holland have finished in October.
The Real McCoy cures to a citrus smell with no hint of indica’s acrid trait. The taste is sweet and spicy at the same time, and produces a happy cerebral buzz that enhances any daytime activities, whether active or reflective in nature. At the 1999 High Times Cannabis Cup, The Real McCoy received a special mention from the celebrity judges.
