Auto Grape Crinkle is another of Mephisto Seeds' Artisanal automatic strains and one which was long in development. It is a 3-way cross between Canadian Crinkle Cut x Supernatural (Exotic Genetix) x Ripley's OG.
The original aim of Grape Crinkle was to produce a mould-resistant marijuana strain for outdoor cultivation in less than perfect conditions. Now an F5 strain the preceding generations enabled selections of the very best plants resulting in what is now said to be "an extract artists wet dream" such is its trichome production. Its Hash Plant origins have possibly found their ultimate auto-flowering expression with grapey terpenes to match.
Initial vegetative growth is fast and open-structured with quite wide inter-nodal distances. Trichome production begins almost immediately that the plants switch into flowering mode. Some plants develop a fat and bulbous main bud and smaller side-branches also sport a fat bud on the end. This short, 70% indica strain is best grown indoors at a density of 12 to the 1.2m2 in pots of 15 litres where the best crop yields will be obtained. Individual plants produce around 40 - 75 gr. each in a time of 55 - 65 days from the seedling stage. With cooler nigh-time temperatures purple colourations are produced making this a striking strain.
Manicuring is an absolute breeze and it's even possible to make "rosin" from the larger fan-leaves such is the proliferation of trichomes. Flavours and aromas include mulled (spiced) wine with an "artificial" grape character and floral notes. The effect is soothing and relaxing.

About Mephisto Genetics
The idea or dream of Mephisto Genetics was conceived during a typical rainy ‘summer’ in England many years ago now. Two breeders, now business partners were in somewhat of a grow-off, working with equally small spaces but in competition of who could produce the best yield in the quickest time. While both breeders were growing incredible amounts of plants, neither were impressed by the effect and potency of their autoflowering varieties. It was then that a new gauntlet was laid down and the idea of Mephisto born. It was an idea neither breeder could resist and so they moved countries and their adventure really began.
The initial aim of Mephisto Genetics was simply to create and develop, unique, high potency, high quality, auto strains developed from sought after photoperiod varieties from start to finish…and this aim has never wavered.
The difference between Mephisto seeds and other companies, is that unlike a lot of brands in the market, they don’t buy in seeds and do a quick re-branding exercise.
The seeds Mephisto Genetics advertise are the ones their customers receive. They are involved in every aspect of cultivation from selection, pollination and de-seeding to sorting and packaging.
At most, two pairs of hands touch Mephisto Genetics products before it reaches our customers. They do things on a small scale, but do things properly and with love. Mephisto also actively invite their fans and customers to follow our work that we document. The list of companies where the consumer can talk directly with the breeder is limited, and Mephisto’s openness and friendliness coupled with the great reviews of their seeds and varieties makes it a no brainer for people to give them a try.
If you want your hard earned money to go to hard working breeders that have shed blood, sweat and tears into creating a special product for you, look no further than Mephisto Genetics.
