Why the fruit of the gods? Well that was what came to mind the first time we smoked this wonderful strain. Even though it was a mostly sativa with strong haze elements coming from its mom, the legendary NL5 Haze, it had an incredibly fruity taste. From our first selection we went with the F.O.G. #11 which is what we used to make our next batches of seeds. This phenotype was amazing, a fruity haze that under the right conditions becomes a beautiful deep purple color. The strain comes from an old NL5 haze phenotype that was around Amsterdam in the late nineties. It was crossed with a Skunk #1 father that came from seeds made in 1988! We were lucky as it was really tough to get them to germinate.
The strain is mostly a sativa but still has a touch of indica in it from the Northern Lights. The plant is tall and does finish in 84 days but is well worth the wait as you will be rewarded by an incredibly strong smoke with an intense fruity flavor. With this strain we tend towards a medium to heavy feeding with the main boosters going in between week 4 and week 6. This one really likes water in the last two weeks of its cycle and takes a week hung upside down to dry. It tends to stretch a bit but likes to have a lot of space as it can get to over 1.5 meters tall.
