- This hybrid of a Grapefruit and a Blueberry was devised to surprise the most demanding growers, as it is capable of producing dense buds with a unique cocktail of fruity flavours. An exotic strain that, in addition to its stunning beauty when blooming, is very easy to grow, and boasts impressive yields, such that it should definitely be present in your next harvest. Are you ready?
Those who have had the chance to try Dinafem's Sweet Deep Grapefruit are quick to recommend it. There must be a good reason why. Not only does it have a delicious fruity combination of aromas and flavours, but it's also easy to grow. In fact, those growers who have gone with it report that, even in cases of deficient care, Sweet Deep Grapefruit can grow strong and vigorous, and end up full of dense and resinous buds. If you pamper it and give it plenty of tender, loving care, some say that branches have actually given way under the weight of the flowers, even though this is a plant with a very strong structure, rather short distances between nodes, and very consistent branch patterns.
Depending on the climate, and also on whether you opt for indoor or outdoor cultivation, this feminized strain also turns heads with its spectacular colours, inherited from its Blueberry genes. Its leaves can take on beautiful tones of violet and purple if the plant is exposed to low temperatures during the night, which does not impact the harvest's ultimate results.
Also, as this is a seed that is predominantly Indica (only 20% Sativa), the therapeutic effects of Sweet Deep Grapefruit have made it one of the most popular strains amongst those turning to cannabis to treat certain health problems. While it is ideal to whet the appetite and induce sleep on those nights when one is afflicted by insomnia, it is also highly recommended for those with panic attacks, migraines and mild depression. There are even some who recommended it for those who suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
With all these facts now on the table, you must be itching to know more about this succulent feminized strain by Dinafem.
It doesn't matter whether you've been successfully growing crops for decades, or just got started in the cannabis universe: Sweet Deep Grapefruit is a very easy plant to grow. With a modicum of care, this strain will give you plenty of large and dense buds. So, both for growers who are a bit careless, and those who cannot go a single day without checking in on their "little ones," this strain is ideal.
Suitable for both indoor and outdoor growing
One of the main factors that make this Dinafem strain so easy to grow is its versatility, as it does equally well inside or outside. If you don't have a room at home for your crop, there is no problem growing Sweet Deep Grapefruit in a garden, or on a terrace or balcony, where you can get yields of up to 900 grams per plant. You will have to do your harvest work in mid September. By then your buds will be compact and resinous, and ready to be savoured.
Indoors, where it reaches a height of 80 cm to 1.4 meters (outside it can grow up to three metres), this strain is also extremely productive, yielding up to 550 grams per square meter.
Flowering and harvest
Some say that, thanks to its appearance, this plant could almost be mistaken for a small Christmas tree, since it produces buds all along the main stem and its secondary branches. Thus, it features a compact and robust structure, with wide and small leaves that end up permeated with lots of resin. At the end of the blooming period growers will be stunned by the combination appearing on its leaves, where a radioactive green is interspersed with the orange tones of the numerous stigmas sprouting from its flowers. Without any doubt, a delightful sight.
If you opt for Sweet Deep Grapefruit in your crops, you must be aware that it is a strain that needs lots of light to grow and flourish. At the same time it is important to note that, because of its shape, it is a strain that takes advantage of light quite well. Because it is small, with short branches and few internodes, light easily reaches every bit of the plant.
The most experienced growers, meanwhile, recommend the use of fertilisers once the plant has entered the flowering period. They report that the best results are achieved by allowing the plant to grow and take full advantage of the nutrients in the substrate (provided it has been prepared correctly) and only later add fertiliser, after the early stages.
Aroma and flavour
Sweet Deep Grapefruit is the result of a combination of two cannabis genetics recognised for their intensely fruity aromatic qualities. First, there is the sweetness of wild berries found in Blueberry, already used in the Blue Fruit and Blue Widow strains, together with a selected clone of Grapefruit, a cannabis strain known for its exotic taste, between pineapple and grapefruit. Those who have tasted Sweet Deep Grapefruit and enjoyed its cocktail of fruity tastes tend to recommend smoking it through a bong, which they say captures all the nuances it has to offer. With stable and dense smoke, users are able to enjoy its sweet, caramel aroma and keep its aftertaste in the mouth for longer, with a touch of slightly acidic grape juice that lingers on the taste buds. A strain that will sweep users away to the tranquillity of the summer, delivering the same sensation as a freshly squeezed fruit cocktail in their hands.
If all this has still not convinced you, its effect is bound to. If you choose Sweet Deep Grapefruit you can still carry on with your day-to-day life, and its Indica identity makes it a great resource to combat certain health problems. If you have no appetite, or suffer from insomnia, this strain is an effective remedy against both problems. It is also effective against mild migraines or small depressions when daily life gets you down. For those with aches and pains from playing sports, or whose age is catching up to them, Sweet Deep Grapefruit can help by relieving muscle pains in a very effective way.
