Sweet Chunk combines many of the positive attributes of both its parents.
An original Sweet Pink Grapefruit cutting was used in the mother role, whist Deep Chunk was selected as father. Deep Chunk, a relatively unknown strain in Europe, is a pure Afghani IBL, renowned for its incredible resin production and vigour.
Sweet Chunk grows very like its father. Its entire plant structure resembles an Afghani strain; characterised by broad, fleshy leaves, a very healthy root system and strong side branching during its vegetative stage.
In flowering, also, this strain takes traits straight from its father. It produces compact and solid buds coated in huge amounts of resin.
This strain is very popular with Afghani and traditional indica lovers. Although at first The Sweet Deep Grapefruit might be difficult to find in this cross, Sweet Chunk owes much of its sweet, fruity aroma and taste, and it’s stretching at the start of the flowering cycle, to its mother. Due to the very strong influence of Deep Chunk on the characteristics of this strain the plants grow very homogenous and stable. You will not find differing phenotypes in this strain.
The yield can be described as moderate to good. Similar to many Afghani strains it is also a good strain for medicinal patients.

About Alpine Seeds
Alpine Seeds are the most popular breeder collective in Switzerland, who, over the past decade have aimed to improve the deterioration of quality strains available in their country and around Europe.
To distance themselves from other European seedbanks, Alpine have created their own strain varieties, without using any Dutch genetics, believing them to be severely overused.
This breeder collective all started as cultivators who were simply growing for themselves. Now, as a collective, they have set themselves the unenviable task of providing quality and unusual cannabis genetics at reasonable prices.
Many of the breeders at Alpine Seeds started life at Herbaria Seeds, another Swiss seedbank which has faded in popularity in recent times. During their time at Herbaria, these breeders were able to collect, select and refine some excellent genetics that never made it onto the European market. Some of these strains have now been released by Alpine Seeds, with great success.
Focusing predominantly on North American elite varieties, Alpine Seeds place much value in the quality, potency, flavour and taste of their hybrids. This can be seen clearly in their comprehensive library of strains. Their Swiss Strawberry x Sweet Pink Grapefruit was released due to overwhelming demand for fully stable strawberry genetics. It is an adaptable plant that has a memorable aroma, taste and cerebral effect. Another one of their popular strains, Sweet Tooth 3 BX2 is an indica dominant strain with some immense resin production and superb flavours that start fruity but end with a sour note.
Being the only Swiss seedbank that has established itself in the European market, Alpine Seeds are carrying the pressure of their country on their shoulders but have never failed to deliver quality and unusual genetics that have generated interest across the globe.
The entire collection from Alpine Seeds’ spectacular library of affordable strains is available on Seedsman now.
