Southern Colombian variety from the department of Huilia cultivated by local farmers. There are pleasant temperatures of 20° to 25° Celcius. The true Mango Biche was cultivated until 15 years ago in these beautiful places of the Colombian massif (mountain ranges between 1400 and 1800 metres above sea level). Now there is variability and presence of indica genes, in the few places where they can be currently found they have high percentages of hermaphrodites damaged by inbreeding. Currently the cannabis market is dominated by the sale of Dutch and hybrid genetics, and the local varieties have been sidelined and replaced due to their long growth cycles.
Mango Biche is famous throughout the world for its delicious aromas of green and sweet mango, its effect is active, clear, cerebral and long lasting.
