Auto Critical Orange Punch makes the High Times Top 10 varieties of 2018

Critical Orange Punch and the autoflowering Auto Critical Orange Punch are the result of some serious breeding work by Dutch Passion over the last few years with the Kritikal Bilbo genetics from Spain. The breeding process began by crossing elite cuttings of Grandaddy Purps and Orange Bud (Orange Punch). The result is a supreme smoke with a deep and rich taste but below-average yields. When this was further crossed with an XXL yielding THC rich Critical, the yields were dramatically improved thanks to the growth vigor of the Critical genetics.

The autoflowering version, Auto Critical Orange Punch, has rapidly become a best seller with lots of repeat growers that love the intense and unusually powerful high. Auto Critical Orange Punch was named in the ‘High Times Top-10 Strains of 2018’. This is a great honor for Dutch Passion genetics and a real boost for European breeding to be included alongside some of the very best new genetics from the USA. High Times tested some genuinely special genetics during 2018, being included in their top-10 list is a real achievement for the Dutch Passion breeding team.

The High Times judging team decided that Auto Critical Orange Punch stood out from the rest of the autoflower varieties thanks to the rare potency levels combined with generous yields. A great terpene profile, aroma, and taste add to a superb quality variety which you will want to grow again and again.

Both the feminized and autoflowering versions of Critical Orange Punch get plenty of repeat growers thanks to the trouble-free and easy growing nature of this genetics. It’s unusual to get new cannabis genetics which are this easy to grow with a real connoisseur quality and top shelf potency levels.

Critical Orange Punch takes around 8 weeks of 12/12 light to bloom. Auto Critical Orange Punch takes around 75 days to grow from seed to harvest under 20 hours of daily light. Both varieties have a great rich skunky citrus taste and an Afghan-hash aroma along with a long lasting powerful euphoric high. The genetics grow well under a wide range of conditions, meaning that less experienced growers can still achieve premium quality results.

I am so luck to have found your article. My brother and I were talking about orange punch cannabis in Woodland Hills after hearing about it from a friend. We came across your article and my personal favorite part has to be where you mentioned it takes 8 weeks of 12/12 light to bloom. I'm sure anybody interested in this strain will glad to hear it comes with a long lasting euphoric high.

Farichii, 20th September 2019. Outdoor yield will depend on the climate, the soil quality and the time of the year you plant her. But, if you can plant her in late spring and grow her through summer in reasonably good conditions you can expect 50-100g of dry herb. Maybe more of you really optimise the conditions. Good luck!

Scouser, 11th May. YES, all Dutch Passion autos can be grown outdoors in the UK. They will take around 100-110 days from seed to harvest and you are not too late to get a few planted this year. They like to have 1-2 weeks indoors under 24 hour light before planting out if possible. But thats not essential. You will get great results, enjoy!

I have been curious about autos ,and decided to try them ,, 45 days and growing far beyond my expectations Auto Critical Orange Punch !!! Awesome genetics . Looking forward to this harvest !

Tim, 24th October. Yes, this should grow well in your region, either the autoflower version of the feminized photoperiod version. The photoperiod version will be ready to harvest in early/mid October, hopefully that is before your cooler weather starts. The autoflower version takes around 100 days from seed to harvest outdoors, so you can harvest this one in mid summer if you wish. Good luck !

I live in northern California, is this something you would recommend for my outdoor grow? The sun gets intense, a little windy just about always and cold at night.
