Appleberry, produced by Sumo Seeds of Amsterdam, is an indica-dominant yield monster said to be a hybrid of Dynalicious (Dynamite crossed with Bubblicious) and White Widow. That being the case, this strain has a classic east-meets-west vibe, what with its Central Asian and Central American roots and a terpene profile all its own.
The tapered buds of Appleberry is reminiscent of the hot pepper-shaped flowers of a sativa-dominant strain, while the scent and taste are similar to the Billardiera scandens (Appleberry) of Australia, which bears edible fruits purported to taste like stewed apples.
The majority of reviews point out that Appleberry’s effects are extremely relaxing and soothing. Sumo Seeds agrees, stating that consuming this strain “will give you a long-lasting, body-stoned feeling with euphoric happiness all around.” Consumers looking for deep sleepzzz may want to give it a try.
First. This strain is a potent sensory treat.
Sumo Seeds chose the name Appleberry not because of its genealogy, but because of its fruity odour and flavour. In fact, indoor growers may consider using odour control if they find the potent smell to be intolerable.
Second. Appleberry is one of companyâ€™s best-yielding varieties.
Sumo Seeds is known for its dedication to growing quality cannabis, distributing seeds and providing cannabis education. It’s no wonder, then, that at the root of Appleberry’s whimsical name is a robust and stable variety that grows consistently and with few phenotypes that stray from the original. The company calls this variety one of their best-yielding strains, of which it has many in its roster.
Third. This strain offers a stable mix of genetics.
The renowned stability of the Appleberry strain is a testament to its genetic roots. Dynamite (Super Skunk crossed with White Widow) was crossbred with a highly potent Bubblicious (a healthy mix of Mexican, Colombian and Afghani genetics) to create Dynalicious. To further stabilize the strain, Sumo Seeds crossbred Dynalicious with a variety that has deep roots in the Netherlands, called White Widow. The Asian and South-American heritage of Dynamite combined with the Mexican sativa, Indiana Bubblegum and Afghani genetics of Bubblicious.
Fourth. Appleberry is a real champ.
Appleberry won first place in the “Bio” category at the 2016 Highlife Cup in Amsterdam.
Fifth. Canâ€™t find Appleberry? Try growing it at home.
Appleberry hasn’t broken into the legal market in Canada yet, though some home-growers may be cultivating this variety on their own. Planted in March, growers can expect to harvest in October after an eight- to nine-week flowering period.
Sumo Seeds promises harvests as big as 400 to 500 g per metre squared indoors, or 600 to 750 g per plant when grown in the sunny outdoors. The biggest concern with the dense bud structure of the strain is to make sure that excess moisture doesn’t become trapped within.
