Sour Apple



A cross between an original Sour Diesel clone and a Cinderella 99 male, Sour Apple is a hybrid strain originally bred by Top Shelf Seeds. Sour Apple is usually distinguishable by its pronounced aromatic fusion of caramelized apples and diesel fuel.

While the original cut of Sour Apple was reportedly only available as a clone, other purported variations have popped up in certain seed bank selections. Even Los Angeles-based cannabis farmers Jungle Boys have a Sour Apple cultivar in their arsenal. Boasting a sweet and skunky flavor profile, Sour Apple has energetic and euphoric effects typical of a sativa, despite some sources claiming that Sour Apple is an indica dominant strain.

Grow information

Due to the Diesel lineage of this strain, growers should expect plants to stretch vigorously to great heights, sometimes requiring trimming to keep the plant growing within its set boundaries. Sour Apple is reported to thrive indoors using the Screen of Green (ScrOG) or Sea of Green (SOG) method, producing dense colas covered with milky white resin. Following a seven-to-nine-week flowering period, cured Sour Apple buds take on a bright green appearance that matches its Granny Smith apple flavor and aroma profile.
