Early Girl is another one of Neville Shoemaker’s babies. We can thank him for so much. It came from California and then Neville and few other people like Vernon Running at Positronics and some of these guys, in the early ’80’s and ’90’s put together crews of breeders that knew what they were doing on a level that people are not doing today. Neville was the man and Early Girl was one of his first attempts to show that he could take outside indica genetics and make them adapt to outdoor use. Early Girl was really what our marijuana is an homage to and we souped it up with taste and smell because it’s about shortening the duration of flyer and getting the buds down before the helicopters got there. So that was their first attempt to get a harvest in September, was Early Girl.
Early Girl is very easy to grow. It’s a good one for beginners. It’s one of the ones like Northern Lights and a few others that we start people out on. It’s very mold and mite-resistant and a few other things like that.
I like it indoors and breed it. There’s a few strains I breed with it. It’s really bred for a greenhouse and outdoors to get it down before frost and the cops.
Early Girl can go as high as you want to let her veg. It’s usually budded indoors from four to five plant foot and adds another foot or two on after that. Outdoors, she just keeps on going until about 14 feet.
Average flowering time for Early Girl is 55 to 72 days, which sounds real long today, but back in the day, when it first came out, that was the big difference between seven months, [laughs] you know? It’s like the first skunks were a six month flowering time and people forget that. Indoors, our learning curve wasn’t what we have today. We came from nothing to where we’re at today. And the selections we have all rest upon certain choices we made back then.
Early Girl averages four to six ounces indoors and, in the greenhouse, I’ve seen it get a pound, outdoors, I’ve seen it go two or three pounds if it’s done right.
Pros and cons of Early Girl are just like the old-school strains. You’re going to get a known product, you know what you’re going to get. It’s going to be the funky if you put the work into it. That’s where it shows the difference between being a real breeder and being a cook-booker. A real grower can bring that to full expression and make Early Girl shine, whereas a hack grower will come out with a hack product.
When we’re dealing with Neville’s products, Early Girl has no contemporaries. There are a lot of similar strains now that people have copied it, like, it’s in a bunch of strains. Like, you go to these clubs and you see all these crazy names and about 3/4 of them are OG Cush which is mine or 2-3 other people’s work homaged off of, or homages off of different ones of Neville’s work these breeds.
