About Gucci Fruit
Gucci Fruit is a name that brings luxury and familiarity to mind at the same time, being a reference to the luxury fashion house and a close rhyme to “Juicy Fruit.” This should tell you two things – that the strain has a luxurious lineage and that it tastes super fruity. The folks at Solfire Gardens bred this little gem from a combination of Grim Bastard OG and Forbidden Fruit. This means that Gucci Fruit has a lineage that includes Cherry Pie, Durban Poison, Hells Angel OG, and Banana Fire Cookies, going all the way back to the original Afghani landrace Indicas. Keep reading to learn why Gucci Fruit was a luxury favorite before the breeder retired it, and why you might still want to get your hands on it if you get the chance.
The breeder recommends 63 flowering days for Gucci Fruit. If you use soil or a manufactured soil substitute growing medium, the strain will give off sweet, floral, and fruity aromas. Before its retirement, the strain had a reputation of being decent for first-time growers, thriving in both indoor and outdoor conditions. The plant itself ranges from mint-green to purple and orange in cover as the thick orange pistils take it over. The plant grows with lumpy buds stacked into pinecone-shaped nugs, with broad, deep-green leaves and a light dusting of white crystals.
The flavor of the strain emphasizes the taste of sweet lemon and berries, with accents of pine and an aftertaste of sweet diesel fuel. The strain is popular in extracts and resin concentrates because of its sweet disposition. It favors terpenes like limonene and pinene to get that tasty aroma. Not to be confused with Gucci OG, a phenotype of OG Kush, this 50/50 hybrid strain is mellower (and better at making you mellow).
Despite this, there’s not a lot of user data out there about Gucci Fruit’s effects since the breeders have unfortunately discontinued it. Its THC levels are also not well-advertised. However, we know that the Pacific Northwest breeders at Solfire Gardens are good at making fruity kickers like Bahama Mama and Black Banana. And we know that those who are lucky enough to get their hands on Gucci Fruit can expect to feel relaxed and comforted by its fruity effects — it’s a great strain for an afternoon sesh. We don’t have high hopes you’ll be able to get any of this strain, but if you do, we’re pretty sure that you’ll wish you could get more.
