DetailsThe first backcross of SweetChunk F1 to her mother, the sweet pink grapefruit, brought a surprising result. The small splitting into several phenotypes in this backcross was seen previously. However, the overall picture of all plants are very close to the original SPG clone. For this cross we selected many SweetChunk F1 plants and save two very good Male`s. At the end we decided us for a more Sativa and SPG dominant Male and did a backcross to the Sweet Pink Grapefruit clone. The growth of the first Backcross is in contrast to the Sweet Chunk F1 Generation more similar to the leaf shape much finer and more delicate. Also, the extension is no longer compare with the F1 hybrid. The whole plant form has changed and tends more to a similar growth like the SPG. The Sweet Chunk F1 hybrid was characterized by the dominance of the Deep Chunk which makes the cross very homogeneous and stable. Through the first backcross, there was a previously suspected splitting of the genes and hence also to more phenotypes in a Seedpack, where in all plants from the same overall picture forth the sweet pink grapefruit. There are three different phenotypes. One Deep Chunk pheno which is similar to the Sweet Chunk F1, with a lot of resin, compact buds and an more Indica look. The flavor from this Deep Chunk pheno is more hashy with a little fruity smell. The second pheno is an identical copy of the Sweet PinkGrapefruit Clone; a more sativa dominant growth, thick inflorescence and an intense smell - a perfect copy of Sweet Pink Grapefruit. The third and final phenotype has the same flavor as pheno two, but a little bit more Sativa dominant and needs to mature for a few days longer. The smell and taste can be easily compared with the second SPG phenotype but a little berry impact can be noticed too. The effect has evolved from a typical Indica Sativa hybrid with a similar stoned, up high. Also, the yield has improved and is now comparable to that of the SPG.
Alpine Seeds are the most popular breeder collective in Switzerland, who, over the past decade have aimed to improve the deterioration of quality strains available in their country and around Europe.
To distance themselves from other European seedbanks, Alpine have created their own strain varieties, without using any Dutch genetics, believing them to be severely overused.
This breeder collective all started as cultivators who were simply growing for themselves. Now, as a collective, they have set themselves the unenviable task of providing quality and unusual cannabis genetics at reasonable prices.
Many of the breeders at Alpine Seeds started life at Herbaria Seeds, another Swiss seedbank which has faded in popularity in recent times. During their time at Herbaria, these breeders were able to collect, select and refine some excellent genetics that never made it onto the European market. Some of these strains have now been released by Alpine Seeds, with great success.
Focusing predominantly on North American elite varieties, Alpine Seeds place much value in the quality, potency, flavour and taste of their hybrids. This can be seen clearly in their comprehensive library of strains. Their Swiss Strawberry x Sweet Pink Grapefruit was released due to overwhelming demand for fully stable strawberry genetics. It is an adaptable plant that has a memorable aroma, taste and cerebral effect. Another one of their popular strains, Sweet Tooth 3 BX2 is an indica dominant strain with some immense resin production and superb flavours that start fruity but end with a sour note.
Being the only Swiss seedbank that has established itself in the European market, Alpine Seeds are carrying the pressure of their country on their shoulders but have never failed to deliver quality and unusual genetics that have generated interest across the globe.
The entire collection from Alpine Seeds’ spectacular library of affordable strains is available on Seedsman now.
