Sweet Pink Grapefruit originates from around Vancouver in Canada. It has existed in cutting form around there for over 35 years and although the exact genetics are unknown there is still a lot of speculation. The most likely story is that the Sweet Pink Grapefruit is a specially selected Northern Lights #1 phenotype, noted for its special flavour. Sweet Pink Grapefruit is well known in her role as the mother plant in the Sweet Tooth family created by Spice of Life Seeds and Breeder Steve. For many years this clone only strain disappeared in Switzerland but a few growers had secured these excellent genetics. Alpine Seeds have now decided to revive this little legend and make it available for commerical sale. The special features of these genetics is undoubtedly the smell, flavour and quality of the final product. It produces such an intense, exotic, sweet taste found only very rarely in other strains. One can see from exactly where the Sweet Tooth gets its flavour. Sweet Pink Grapefruit produces good average yields with a high resin content and good potency, which all help to complement this strain as an elite clone. The dense buds are not too hard, under lights they mature in 62-68 days and at an early stage give off that special flavour. The strong root formation and structure of the buds points to a clear relationship with Afghani genetics. However the leaf and vegetative growth stage show marked similarities with properties which are often found as characteristic of sativas. Sweet Pink Grapefruit is produced by a self-pollination of this clone-only Strain. It is very hard to feminize and to force male flower production on the female plant. The breeders use a new self-fertilizing technique with a new chemical to produce a lot of male flowers which contains potent pollen. Feminized S1 Seeds are very close to the original Sweet Pink Grapefruit Clone. Smell, taste, the buzz and the whole plant are similar to the original cutting and show the same unique traits.
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.
