Dutch Passion Frisian Duck. Cannabis like you have never seen before
Frisian Duck is one of the most unusual cannabis varieties ever developed by Dutch Passion. It’s a cross of our outdoor number-one best seller Frisian Dew with a carefully selected gene bank ‘Ducksfoot'.
Ducksfoot is a strange looking cannabis variety with webbed cannabis which look notably different from the traditional cannabis leaf shape. A large number of pictures are included in this weeks blog because we have received so many mails about Frisian Duck since she was announced.

The Ducksfoot cross with Frisian Dew, and the selective breeding over many generations has produced Frisian Duck. Its a variety which shows the best of both parents; tough enough for outdoor growing in Northern Europe or extreme southern latitudes together with webbed leaves to provide the unique ability to make it look like any other wild plant which you might walk straight past. The breeding to create Frisian Duck took several years but the result was worth it and shows the remarkable talents of some real ‘Masters at Work’. Most of the leaves are webbed and stay that way often into the end stages of flowering. Whilst most people would recognise the distinctive shape and iconic shape of a normal cannabis leaf they would fail to recognise Frisian Duck as a cannabis plant. Even experienced growers found it hard to believe. This makes Frisian Duck the perfect choice for people that grow in an urban back garden, patio, balcony or greenhouse and want the added camouflage provided by the webbed leaf which often resembles the squashed shape of a ducks foot.
The cannabis buds grow in the normal way; they look, smell and taste just like normal cannabis. The effects are the same. Often the buds may show some beautiful blue colours. Outdoors she is ready around the start of October in the northern hemisphere or the start of April in the southern hemisphere. In Europe she can survive the Dutch outdoor climate and will also do very well in a greenhouse or polytunnel growing into a christmas-tree shaped plant. In good conditions she can reach 2-3 metres high. Yields are average or slightly above average, but quality of the cannabis is good with a strong sativa high with a spicy taste and hints of pine/citrus.
Frisian Duck can also be grown indoors like a normal feminized photoperiod variety. Flowering begins when the lights are switched to 12/12, just like normal. Indoors the leaves also have the webbed ‘ducks foot’ shape. Because the strong cannabis aroma is the same as traditional cannabis this variety will still need carbon filters for indoor grows.
Frisian Duck has been one of Dutch Passions most unusual, and most difficult, breeding challenges. We have had numerous requests over the years, especially from outdoor/greenhouse growers, for a stealth cannabis variety that you could walk past and fail to recognise. And thats the real beauty of this variety - the natural camouflage given by the unusual leaf shape reduces the chance of discovery. People that were reluctant to grow a cannabis plant in the corner of their garden, or the countryside, will feel that the odds have been tipped significantly in their favour. A Frisian Duck will look great among the tomato plants in the greenhouse. And with her beautiful purple colours a Frisian Duck be perfect in the flower bed next to your flowering shrubs. In the countryside, hills, river banks and fields this is a variety which will naturally blend into the background. Frisian Duck does not mind being trained (tied down) to keep her short, she can also be topped and will respond with a bushier and shorter structure.
Even experienced cannabis growers found it hard to believe the appearance of the plants. Without the distinctive cannabis leaf shape the whole plant is simply unrecognisable. Frisian Duck offers something special and unique for the self sufficient urban cannabis grower. Its a typical Dutch Passion style project, creating something that is new and offering the home grower even more convenient ways to grow their own cannabis. Seeds are feminized and available in packs of 3, 5 or 10. We hope you like Frisian Duck, and we end the blog with plenty of pictures to enjoy.
