Cherry Pie is based on the Female Seeds' strain Pure AK, re-working it for the new decade. A Cherry Punch was donated by Symbiotic Genetics in the U.S.A. and Female Seeds subsequently crossed this with their own Skunk Special. Improved yields, extra vigour and higher resistance were the goals which were successfully reached.
This is an easy strain to grow and one which is not overly fussy about its nutrients. Plants are short to medium in size with only a small amount of stretch once flowering has been initiated. Their height indoors will be between 80 - 120 cm. whilst outdoors plants will grow to be 100 - 150 cm. tall. Indoors flowering will take 8 - 10 weeks with yields expected to be 450 - 650 gr/m2. Outdoor plants will produce between 350 - 500 gr. each.
Typically indica leaves are dark green and broad and this colour is also found in the buds which can be streaked with blue and purple tones making a bagful very attractive indeed. Its primary scent and taste is Skunky with smooth, sweet cherry. The effect is very well-balanced between the uplifting effect of the Skunk Special and AK genetics with some nice relaxation courtesy of the Cherry Punch. All in all a very nice, cheery daytime smoke, powerful but smooth.

About Female Seeds
Ferry, the creator and head cultivator at Female Seeds started making regular seeds during his studies in the early 90’s, purely as a source of extra income. However, the high demand for new strains from Amsterdam combined with the excellence of the products that Ferry was producing, his business truly exploded and became a major player in the regular cannabis seed business by the end of the 1990’s.
Speaking of this unexpected expansion, Ferry said, “I never thought an extra student income would lead to such a serious business. Ultimately my dream was to save money for a small self-sufficient eco farm.”
At the end of the 21st century, the first feminised seeds were introduced to the market. They were very popular, but also very unreliable. Ferry’s experience in massive regular seed production combined with his engineering background motivated him to investigate how to produce 100% reliable female seeds.
Because of this, Ferry switched his focus from regular to feminised seeds, and by 2003, he introduced Female Seeds to the market. It became a huge success immediately because of his decision to price his seeds below market average while still maintaining the quality of his products. In fact, Female Seeds became so popular in such a short space of time, the company had difficulties to meet the demand.
Around this time, many new feminised seedbanks started to enter the market. However, a good reputation, reliable and unique products, value for money and friendly customer service helped Female Seeds to differentiate ourselves from the mass.
Ferry spoke about the current success of his company saying, “Female Seeds has now entered a state of transition, from a company to a movement to invest in sustainable independent growing systems, like aquaponics and LED systems. Furthermore all profits will be invested into cooperative systems, ecological projects and agriculture. Helping people to have a happy sustainable lifestyle is our overriding goal."
