Sweet Purple is a hybrid of 3 varieties: a purple variety, and early-finishing and large-yielding Dutch variety and a third, mystery strain of a strong potency. As the name implies, this strain kept the coloration of the purple parent, while gaining sweetness from the Dutch part of the family. This mostly indica mix was bred by Paradise Seeds in 1999 for outdoor gardens in temperate climates.
Any time a Dutch breeder claims a variety can grow outdoors in Holland, you can bet that she’ll stand up to cold, wet climates. Sweet Purple has the additional benefit of resisting mold. These hardy plants grow to a full height of about 8 feet and can yield 500 grams per fully matured plant. Sweet Purple shows some variation, and potency can vary from average to “wow” from one plant to another. The coloration also ranges – some plants turn completely purple, while others take on this royal hue on the buds alone.
Sweet Purple has a strong herbal bouquet, and a sweet taste with an iron-like tone to it. The high is a pleasant bodily sensation, but also retains a lucid edge that may increase your sense of concentration.
