Red Purps is an outdoor strain that grows very similar to the old Purple Power cannabis strain but with improved flavour and smoking qualities. It flowers early and displays delightful colouration.
Red Purps should be sown outdoors from mid-April to mid-May in the northern hemisphere. Flowering starts as early as the first week in July with plants growing to between 150 - 200 cm. tall and being ready to chop during September. The higher the latitude the later the harvest so that plants grown in the Mediterranean will be ready at the very end of August whereas those grown in northern Europe will be in the latter half of September. Success can also be had with this strain indoors. The buds conform to the stereo-typical "donkey dick" description and yields are pretty good too.
Plants look more indica during growth although the effect is rather more like a sativa. The aroma and taste is like a sweet licorice with undertones of that special Purple quality. The effect is a sativa head-high which is not physically heavy or debilitating.
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."
