Mother: We trialed an abundance of big-name cannabis varieties in 2018 and Forbidden Fruit was our #1 new favorite (non-Annunaki) strain of them all. It had the right growth habit, beautiful bud color, structure, and of course the overwhelming, unique ‘Tangie’/orange, cedar and gremolata aroma. Being a clone-only variety, Forbidden Fruit is hard to come across these days, and so we are glad to use it in this cross so that others may experience its unique qualities.
‘Father’/mother: White IX, the female pollen-donor of this cross, was bred by Cannarado many years ago. We found this phenotype from seed 4 or 5 years ago ourselves and she’s been a garden stand-out ever since. The fact that we chose her for our very first feminized seed release says a lot! During our very first run though we weren’t quite sure about her because she seemed to grow kinda slow during the vegetative cycle and in flower too, but during weeks 6 through 9 she really put on quite the performance, more than compensating for the shortcomings we thought she might’ve had! We were quick to judge and she showed us just how quick she can stack fat buds on those stocky branches of hers. The flowers will continue to swell until they topple over, paying no mind to the support stakes tied to them. The leaves generally remain dark green and canoe-upwards because of the resin-rails that encrust the edges of the leaves. The flowers are dense and heavy. And what about the aroma? She has a loud, deep, dank, pine-skunk, acetone nose… the one that so many folks are fond of these days. The thing that is so special about her though is that unlike many OGs or Cookie varietals that grow tall and lanky, this lady keeps to herself, staying on the shorter, more compact side throughout her life, which we love. Her many highly desirable traits really shine through in this feminized cross.
During our trials of these Rubber Necker seeds we found that most plants were Forbidden Fruit leaning, however the White IX influence cannot be understated as she helps to contribute to the terrific structure and of course the potency of these plants. The plants that grow from these seeds will grow up to be the super models of the garden. But not just one, an entire group of gorgeous babes all hanging out under the sun… drawing folks in from surrounding counties just to get a glimpse. An epidemic will eventually ensue after enough visits to the local Dr. complaining of neck pains. The diagnosis? ‘Rubber Necking’. And it all leads back to the Forbidden Fruit x White IX cannabis cross that Annunaki Genetics made. Fortunately for those afflicted, the cause of their sore neck is also the solution to it… Light her up and inhale!
