Passion Fruit is a hybrid variety that is the result of crossing two incredibly fruity varieties to create something even better than the original parent varieties. The buds of this variety smell like you have just set foot in a candy shop!
Most dominant are the more sweet, citrus, sour and orange aromas. You can expect a unique grape flavour profile which is super tasty. If you want a delicious, rich and supremely powerful cannabis variety with genuine fruit-taste overload then you will love Passion Fruit feminised seeds!
Passion Fruit is a really vigorous hybrid variety which ensures buds of premium potency levels. THC levels can reach great heights if this variety is perfectly cared for. This variety is known to be quite resilient and forgiving. She will have very sticky buds so be aware if nurturing your plants during late flowering as you can literally become covered in sticky resin. Watch out if you brush your clothes against this aromatic fruity variety in late bloom - you will retain the powerful fruity scent of this potent feminised seed variety for quite some time!
Passion Fruit quickly gained a reputation amongst repeat growers for its unique terpene profile, high yields and potent flowers. It is the result of crossing two very strong and stable genetic lines into something new and exciting.
The Passion Fruit name was derived from the appealing smell and great taste of the buds. It is slightly sour, sweet and fruity with a hint of grapes which reminded the Dutch Passion test team of real passion fruit.
Passion Fruit is a hybrid cannabis variety that would be best described as a 50% Indica/50% Sativa variety which leans slightly to the Sativa side. However, due to the Indica heritage, you may be lucky enough to find the Indica leaning phenotype as well. Passion Fruit has what is known as hybrid vigor. This means that she has the genetic disposition to grow particularly quickly and explode during flowering. This makes Passion Fruit an ideal candidate for both a SOG style of growing as well as growing under 12/12 light from seed. Passion Fruit is also well suited to SCROG growing techniques with just a few plants (or perhaps only 1 plant) per m2.
Passion Fruit responds very well to bending and supercropping. Topping and fimming is recommended if you want an even bushier plant structure. Passion Fruit is a high yielding feminised cannabis seed variety. In the right hands she can reward the grower with an extraordinary large harvest and that’s the reason she was marked as an XXL variety.
Passion Fruit is a well-balanced hybrid. The genetics come from Sweet Pink Grapefruit which was crossed with the multiple cannabis cup winning Orange Bud. This unique cross ensures one of the richest and tastiest flavor profiles in the Dutch Passion collection! The hybrid vigour from crossing these two strong varieties ensures excellent results. The roughly 50/50 indica/sativa ratio delivers a superbly enjoyable well-balanced high which will quickly become one of your favourites. It’s unusual to find a high THC variety that boasts such heavy yields alongside a genuinely unique terpene profile.
Being a cross of our original Orange Bud makes Passion Fruit very stable and easy to grow. Orange bud was selected in the 1980’s from outstanding Skunk genetics which produce dense and hard buds covered in crystals and beautiful orange hairs. The wonderfully coloured, crystal covered Orange Bud nuggets deliver a great taste to ensure outstanding bag appeal. Orange Bud is also noted for a uniquely sweet taste with citrus tones of nectarine and ripe orange.
Sweet Pink Grapefruit is thought to have originated in Canada, although the precise original genetics are uncertain and shrouded in speculation. Some say it started with a very fruity Northern Light phenotype, others say it was part of breeding program with a special Blueberry line. What can be said for sure is that this variety produces an extremely intense, exotic and sweet taste rarely found in other cannabis varieties.
Passion Fruit can show quite a compact growth pattern during the vegetative growth period. She can have both thick stems and big/broad fan leaves which show more of her Indica heritage. During flowering the Sativa side of the genetics becomes more evident as she starts stretching and gaining height. Being such a strong hybrid, she is suitable for all sorts of growing techniques, whether you are focused on having numerous plants per m2 or just a handful.
Passion Fruit is ready to harvest after 8-9 weeks indoors. Outdoors she can become huge so make sure you give her enough space to grow. She will be ready outdoors in the middle/end of Autumn.
The genetics used to create Passion Fruit ensure the following characteristics:
Passion Fruit is a great plant for beginners as she is quite resilient and forgiving. Although we recommend giving her a stable grow environment in order to optimise her potential, she will still produce decent size plants and potent buds when grown in sub-optimum conditions.
Passion Fruit appeals to anyone needing a feminised seed variety with a seriously powerful high, heavy yields and a genuine fruit-packed taste. Passion Fruit comes from crossing Orange Bud with Sweet Pink Grapefruit. The sweet fruity parent varieties ensure that Passion Fruit packs the fresh taste and fruity aroma that will make your buds stand out from the crowd.
Dutch Passion obtained the superb clone of original Sweet Pink Grapefruit from a trusted friend in Belgium. It was one of the fruitiest varieties the team have encountered in a long time. When sampling the THC rich Sweet Pink Grapefruit buds the Dutch Passion test team were blown away by the smell and taste. The great yields added to the appeal.
The team immediately knew that they had to create a new feminised cannabis seed variety using these genetics. Sweet Pink Grapefruit and Orange Bud are both highly respected cannabis seed varieties in their own right. When hybridised together the result is arguably even better than either of the original parent varieties.
Passion Fruit buds are unmistakably some of the most complex, fruity and tasty that Dutch Passion have encountered in many years. Passion Fruit is an exciting new addition to the Orange family and a great new high-quality cannabis seed variety which you can rely on.
Passion Fruit is a powerful hybrid with THC levels of around 20%, she is definitely considered a strong variety. We have seen phenotypes of around 25% THC and in some cases THC levels of around 30% THC have been reported, though not yet confirmed by our own lab testing.
These unusually high THC levels show the remarkable genetic potential of this variety. The effect is powerful and cerebral yet not devastating nor paranoid. Passion Fruit will get you as high as a kite, but you will still able to function. We believe the crossing has produced just the right amount of both Indica and Sativa genes.
Original Orange Bud genetics help to keep the high uplifting and social. Be in no doubt, Passion Fruit is exceptionally strong and delivers a superb feel-good high. This is also an excellent variety for the grower seeking exceptional quality THC-rich plants to use as eventual mother plants.
We normally recommend a vegetative period of about 4 weeks. When growing in a SOG (sea of green) it is possible to grow this variety on 12/12 light cycle straight after the feminised cannabis seeds have germinated. When you grow just a few plants per m2 we recommend giving her a veg period of about 6 weeks. Being close to a 50/50 hybrid you can expect quite some stretch during flowering, though not as much as ‘pure’ Sativas or Sativa dominant hybrids.
It is possible to use many types of growing techniques like LST (low stress training) as well as HST (high stress training). Passion Fruit reacts very well to them all. Topping or fimming is recommended if you want to make her even bushier or branch out earlier. We do not recommend topping/fimming the Indica dominant phenotype since this will destroy her massive main cola.
Passion Fruit will produce great results outdoors too. Being a variety that can cope with colder temperatures at night this sturdy lady is proven for outdoor growing. Even in mountainous regions where temperatures at night can drop significantly, Passion Fruit has the ability to thrive. Massive plants of 2.5-3.5m tall are possible and they can be just as wide given proper soil, nutrients and sunlight.
Growing her in a greenhouse would be recommended to reach her full potential outdoors. However, consider the need to maintain sufficient fresh air to the greenhouse in order to optimise the final result. Avoid still, stale air in greenhouses as this will increase the possibility of fungus and mold in the numerous dense flowers.
The flowering time is about 8-9 weeks. In combination with the recommended veg phase it takes around 12-15 weeks from seed to harvest.
Passion Fruit produces large harvests of high-quality cannabis. Expect around 500 to 600+ grams per m2 in optimised conditions. The hybrid plants will carry big and bulky flowers.
Crossing our original Orange Bud with Sweet Pink Grapefruit led to Passion Fruit and we couldn’t be happier with the result as it combines the best of both worlds! It is quite an easy plant to grow but can be challenging to master (in a fun way). This makes it an interesting variety for all types of growers.
Passion Fruit is one of those high quality feminised seed varieties with the potential for some of the highest THC levels and premium quality buds. This makes Passion Fruit an attractive variety for the experienced grower seeking a special harvest. Yet Passion Fruit is a forgiving variety with a wide growing latitude which makes her an option for less experienced growers too.
Be aware of prolonged periods with high humidity levels during flowering, as she can become sensitive to mold. Ensure a proper air flow to reduce the chance of losing those precious connoisseur quality buds.
In terms of robustness, Passion Fruit can handle cold temperatures quite well. Cooler night temperatures can induce some autumnal looking blue/purple hues in the buds and leaves, making her very attractive to look at. This can also increase resin levels making her even more sticky!
Passion Fruit is only available in feminized seeds.
