Frisian Duck is a cross of Frisian Dew and a strain known as Duck's Foot on account of its unusual duck-foot-shaped leaves. It makes a great strain for growing outdoors in close proximity to neighbours as it does not look like a traditional cannabis leaf at all.
Frisian Duck is an indica/sativa strain that doesn't really look much like cannabis until the last few weeks of flowering when its buds develop and some of its upper leaves take on a more traditional cannabis leaf form. Others may just twist but this is a natural quirk and is nothing to be worried about. It grows in a Christmas tree structure often with beautiful purple shades in evidence during flowering. Indoor plants can grow to a height of 150 cm. while those grown outdoors in the ground can reach 250 cm. Yields are very good and harvest is after 8 weeks flowering or in late September/early October outdoors in the northern hemisphere.
It is a very robust and stealthy plant and will be popular just for those reasons alone but there is more to this strain than funny-shaped leaves. Depending on grower skill and conditions Frisian Duck can produce up to 20% THC with less than 1% CBD

About Dutch Passion
"You don't buy that many seeds a year, it's one area of your life where compromise isn't necessary so choose a seed bank with a long tradition and proven record" - Dutch Passion
In the 1970’s, Dutch Passion’s founder, Henk van Dalen, began collecting and breeding with cannabis seeds which he found in the early Dutch cannabis imports arriving from all over the world. He realised that it was possible to grow your own cannabis and often it was far superior to the often poor-quality, heavily seeded, imported product.
Some of his best varieties were selectively crossed and bred and he soom realised that many people would prefer to grow their own cannabis from seed rather than buy it on the streets.
In 1987, the Dutch Passion Seed Company was formally established. 10 years later, they became the first seed bank to learn how to make feminized seeds, something that many people at the time said was impossible with cannabis. Ever since then, Dutch Passion have been busy trying to create the best cannabis seeds and trying to keep up with customer interest in other varieties of seeds such as autoflowering and CBD-rich etc.
Dutch Passion grow from their own gene bank of original genetics collected decades ago, These days, many newer seed banks simply regurgitate existing varieties/genetics and put a new name on them. Dutch Passion are both proud and fortunate to have their own legendary varieties from the 1980’s and plenty of old original seeds to use for future projects.
Crowned Best Seed bank at Spannabis 2014, Dutch Passion are well known for their sophistication and quality. The Dutch Passion breeders concern themselves with creating and preserving quality, and their varieties have won many prizes in cannabis cup competitions.
