Frisian Dew, a cup winner that guarantees the highest quality
Frisian Dew won 1st place in 2008 at the Highlife Cup in the Netherlands. More recently, in the 2018 Homegrown Cup, Frisian Dew took 3rd place in the ‘Dutch Hash’ category. She has been an important part of the outdoor feminized seed collection for many years and still knows how to beat other new varieties with ease.
The buds of Frisian Dew are fruity and fresh
Frisian Dew is a perfect hybrid cannabis plant with a fresh, fruity, floral taste and aroma. It can vary from fruity (forest fruits) and slightly lemon-like to more pine-like and lavender. Some phenotypes smell a bit more like earth, ammonia, and herbs – a characteristic from her Skunk parents. Her terpene profile is unique and provides a pleasant smoking experience. A beautiful outdoor feminized variety that also tastes great!
The buds of Frisian Dew are large and colorful
Frisian Dew is widely known for its great yields. It goes without saying that the buds can become very large and fat. It’s that perfect blend of Indica and Sativa genes that take care of development, producing abundant growth and heavy blooms. Most phenotypes also have a very favourable flower-to-leaf ratio.
Growing Frisian Dew outdoor offers the best yield
Frisian Dew is the best seller from our Dutch Outdoor cannabis seed selection. She was carefully crossed and selectively bred over many generations in Friesland, a province in the Netherlands. These genetics have more than proven themselves over the years. A classic outdoor feminized seed variety that will certainly not disappoint.
Frisian Dew has something called ‘hybrid vigor’. It is the result of a cross between a female Super Skunk and a male Purple Star. Shiva has created a very strong plant that grows fast and blooms exuberantly. Her Sativa genes provide long blooms and the Indica genes ensure compact buds. Together this combination makes for extremely high yields.
The name Frisian Dew comes from the area where this variety was developed. Frisian is the literal translation of “Fries” in English one of the northernmost regions in the Netherlands with its own language and strong cultural heritage.
This strong hybrid delivers experienced smokers with a powerful high which lasts quite a long time. Many outdoor growers simply find it the perfect high, nice for both the day and night. Smoke/vape a little bit more and the “couch-lock” takes over from the initial up-high.
Frisian Dew seeds are stable, strong, and easy to grow
Frisian Dew is the result of years of crossbreeding/development of both Skunk and Purple genetics. This time-consuming process ultimately produced a very stable and strong outdoor feminized seed variety. Her genetics are known for high yields and high quality. She is also very easy to grow. She doesn’t need any special feeding schedules and she can handle just about any type of weather condition, cold and wet or hot and dry, Frisian Dew can handle it!
The majority of the plants will become strong and large. This strain is known for vigorous growth with large leaves and strong sturdy stems which don’t break easily. It is a lady that you must tame if you do not want her to grow into a huge bush.
Frisian Dew is a true classic outdoor marijuana strain of legendary proportions.
She isn’t suitable for indoor growing but is perfectly suited to outdoor growing and greenhouses. In the right circumstances and with the right care the plant can grow to one of the epic proportions. Plants of 3.5 m high by 3.5 m wide are no exception. In most cases, Frisian Dew is ready for outdoor harvest in October (Northern Hemisphere). In greenhouses, it can sometimes be a few weeks earlier in the right circumstances. But bear in mind that it is precise during these last weeks that the most bud weight is produced by the plants. Harvesting too early can therefore lead to a lower yield.
Outside (and in greenhouses) she can reach a height of 3-4 m and is harvested during early/mid-autumn.
The genetics used to grow Frisian Dew guarantee the following properties:
- Strong and vigorous growth both outside and in the greenhouse. Commercial production levels when grown under optimal conditions
- A plant that is suitable for all types of weather, even in a cold and humid climate. It can provide large plants with a good yield
- Large strong branches that are full of light purple flower clusters with a favorable flower-to-leaf ratio and a fresh, fruity taste
Frisian Dew is the perfect outdoor feminized seed variety for both beginners and experts. Even as a beginner it is easy to achieve large returns. In the hands of an expert, this strain can provide yields of a few Kg of dry cannabis flowers per plant. It is recommended that this strain is only grown outdoors or in greenhouses.
Effects of Frisian Dew
Frisian Dew has a strong hybrid effect, giving the user a great up high combined with a nice heavy ‘body stone’. Smoke a little and you feel an energetic, creative high. Smoke a little more and let your body relax completely after a long day. If you are a fan of a boosting Sativa high, we recommend harvesting her a little earlier, but if you are a fan of the narcotic Indica high, we recommend leaving her a little longer. This provides more amber trichomes and a stronger body effect.
Frisian Dew flowering time
We recommend a minimum (pre) growth phase of approximately 3 -6 weeks. Outdoor plants can best be started indoors on an 18/6 light scheme. With this, you ensure a stronger plant that has a better chance of survival. Germinating a feminized cannabis seed outside or putting a young seedling of a few days old outside brings all kinds of risks. If the plants are still small, they are less resistant to weather conditions. In addition, they can be eaten very quickly by a small pest, insects, or other animals. The larger and healthier the plant is when she is planted outdoors, the greater the chance of a successful harvest.
Frisian Dew flourishes best in a mild/temperate climate, but she also performs well in a very hot or humid climate. She is generally more resistant to bad weather than most traditional cannabis strains.
The flowering time is around 8 weeks. It can be harvested at the Dutch latitude between the end of September and the end of October. In a greenhouse, she often flowers a little faster due to better conditions.
The yield of Frisian Dew
Frisian Dew produces extremely high yields, it is not categorized as an XXL variety for anything. Both outside and in greenhouses, it is possible to grow plants that yield several Kg of dried buds. Even a beginner will find it possible to harvest a few hundred grams per plant.
Advice from our experts
Frisian Dew is a strong plant that can handle just about anything, it even responds well to LST, super cropping, and pruning. ‘Pinching’ or ‘Fimming’ are two other cultivation techniques that can be used several times during the growth phase to produce a more ‘bushy’ plant structure. This ultimately results in a shorter plant, but one with lots of side blooms.
For the best, tastiest result, we recommend that you cultivate her completely organically. With natural nutrients, the taste is optimized. Therefore, with good and healthy soil, plants are less susceptible to disease and fungus. Pay extra attention to dead leaves during the middle and end of flowering. Because of the heavy thick buds, dead leaves can cause top rot and fungi more quickly. You want to prevent this at all times!
