Gelato is a cross between Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, named for their sweet scent. Also known as Larry Bird, Gelato (# 33) was first grown in the Bay Area of Northern California and comes from a deep gene bank created by the Cookie family, the Sherbinskis family, and breeder Mario Guzman.
The breeders split up after their creation and the breeder who owns the most “stable” version of Gelato genetics is up for debate. Cookies grow some phenotypes and descendants of the variety called Gelato # 42, Dolce Gelato, and a sungrown Gelato. Sherbinskis also produces four gelato phenotypes that are stabilized in their rotation: Gelato # 41 (Bacio Gelato), Gelato # 43 (Gello Gelato), Gelato # 47 (Mochi Gelato) and Gelato # 49 (Acai Berry Gelato) Per Sherbinskis phenotype # 33 is no longer cultivated.
