This line shouldn’t give you too much trouble like some wild Mexican cultivars. It has been selected and bred to itself many times to improve upon flowering times, structure, high and any other undesirable traits that would prevent you from getting many keepers in each pack. Oaxacan gold has a great sativa aroma from years gone by with its spicy citrus incense smell. Some may have more of a fruity smell like berries but either way you’re sure to find something special for your collection. Like plants of purple color, proper measures are needed to achieve the famed gold color in this variety.
It’s best to grow in a balanced organic medium that is not too high in nitrogen. They will turn gold on their own at the end of flower. A proper cure of at least a few months will only help this process along and break down any leftover chlorophyll. There is always girdling the plant like what has been reported to be done by the farmers in Mexico but this can be tricky to perform and takes lots of practice to perfect.

I just got back from the rec store and bought a gram of Sour Cookies rosin.
It reminded me of an old strain of weed that we used to buy on occasion back in the 70's in the midwest. It was bright green and the seeds were very shiny (oily), dark, chocolate-brown with no striping. The seed casings were very thin and rather fragile -broke easily if you pressed on them. The buds were full of them and there was very little left after they were separated. Again, the bright green color was very unique, as well. The taste was very earthy and mossy and left a lingering aftertaste on the pallet -like when you walk into a greenhouse on a hot day - that organic, "planty" smell. I remember that, at the time, it wasn't even the desirable flavor! We all were trying to cop the Columbian and other similar "gold" strains. and that memory of it made me about 45 years younger! Anyway, I was happy to have found a taste and smell that took me back in time. They were freebies from Seed Direct or Seed Boutique cant remember which name Gypsy went by then. They were not ment for indoor but i didnt know any better then. Grew the best one outside one season and was wonderful with a great uppy high with a earthy flavor like you said. I also have Sour Cookies from Dank genetics going now. One of the first 2 i grew has one of the greatest highs ive had comfort wise, really potent and very euphoric with no paranoia. I really like the cookie they used in the cross, no mint like the forum cut which i sort of despise in crosses. The most earthy tasting strain ive ever ran was a Alien x Fire OG from Carpe Diem. Tasted like you were eating a bag of HP promix with a hint of cherry. The Acapulco gold that’s around now is an old school Oaxacan. Purple Mexican; (Oaxacan '79 X Pakistan Citral Kush), Cannabiogen, florewin: ltecato. Back in the 70s, my neighbor got his hands on some Oaxacan seeds from a bag of weed that someone had scored in San Antonio. He planted them in his back yard and they grew to about two feet tall in a month or so. Then, unfortunately one of his relatives found the plants and ordered him to get rid of them. So he cut down the seedlings and dried them out to smoke (because after all it was Texas in the 70s and the available selection of reefer for sale was absolutely dismal).
All I can say is that these leaves from immature plants kicked our teenage asses. Not flowers -- just what would now be called "trim" and probably used to make topicals or extracts. I remember this distinctly because I had to drive home from my friend's house after we smoked a joint and this was just about the only time cannabis sort of made me "hallucinate." I was driving along and my headlights hit something ahead that I thought (briefly) was a giant green fluorescent rat in the middle of the road. I had to blink once or twice before I figured out it was just a big, leafy tree branch that had fallen in the street. Those Oaxacan leaves gave me a "trippier" high than just about anything else I've smoked before or since. It was totally upbeat and it felt "clear-headed" but goofy as hell. I never had a chance to try this amazing Sativa but the deep flavors and enveloping high make it sound really good.
I love those earthy flavors but always associated those with Indicas. Most of the sativas I've played around with have had more of a Citrusy Thai Haze type of spin to it. Strong but best paired with a good Indica to level you back off. Probably would make an amazing hybrid paired with a similar flavored Indica.
