Lemon Zkittle is an indica-sativa hybrid cannabis strain that was bred from 2 USA strains. Las Vegas Lemon Skunk crossed with a potent and much-prized Zkittlez parent. Happily the most potent phenotype turned out to be the most stress-resistant also; this was the Yellow Lemon Skittle pheno. Excellent yield potential from this high-THC strain.
Lemon Zkittle is very simple to grow and even beginners can harvest fantastic results. The Zkittlexz parent is one of the most in-demand strain currently in the USA and prices reflect this with this weed costing as much as $35 per gram! Lemon Zkittle is slightly sativa-dominant (60%) which helps to explain the superb yields although its very high resin production with over 20% THC that is likely to be the biggest factor in attracting fans. Flowering takes a total of 9 - 10 weeks.
The bright yellow and green buds exude a powerful aroma of sour citrus fruits and the flavour is very strongly of lemons. This is an incredibly potent cannabis strain that Dutch Passion claim to be one of the most potent that they have ever produced.
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.
