(Ghost OG x Fucking Incredible) x Purple Pineapple Express #4 (powdery mildew resistant)
Mother: We had a rare opportunity to grab some old seed stock from a friend of a friend who said they’ve known DJ Short his entire life. We looked over the ‘Alaska Cannabis Cache’ seed list as we were told we could acquire any seeds on it, and many of them were 20-30 years old…
The real classics. Typically we would not even entertain the idea that these seeds could be real, but after being reassured that the ongoing breeding and continued preservation of these seed lines had DJ Shorts name behind them we thought this might be our best opportunity to hopefully score some old-school genetics.
After acquiring quite a few seed packs from him, we grew some out and the variety that we personally found to be the best and the most stunning was this Ghost OG x Fucking Incredible plant! It’s an extreme Indica both in its growth structure and its rate of growth, but my God does this plant have the heftiest, FATTEST buds we’ve seen in a long time! They are full, large, and round.
Bright flame-orange pistils cover the canvas of the rich purple and lime-green coloured buds. Plus they stink to high heaven! Ghost OG x Fucking Incredible is truly a stunning plant to see and experience in person and is a breeze to grow in the garden. Finished flowers always move quickly as they appeal to many. We hunted and found this specific plant ourselves, so you’d be hard-pressed to find her, or even a close relative elsewhere.
‘Father’: Purple Pineapple Express #4 is one of our favourite plants, and she just so happens to be one of the first crosses we ever made! Nearly 10 years ago, we used a beautiful Pineapple Express female and crossed her to a special non-serrate leaf Huckleberry Hound male.
Each of the Purple Pineapple Express phenotypes were extremely nice in appearance, all expressing purple flowers with huge, fat buds and exceptional yields, but we decided to keep the #4 phenotype because of her sturdy stature, fantastic bud production, her insanely resinous pewter-purple flowers, and her stellar high.
We grew PPE #4 for many years until we accidentally lost her for a while, only to receive her back from a HUGE clone facility in California that we had gifted her to previously. And she came back with good news– Customers absolutely loved growing her indoors and out in California and those same happy customers found her to be 100% resistant to powdery mildew!
To us, this is one of the most special and important traits a cannabis plant can have, and is one more reason why we love PPE4 so much!
This resistance to mildew was our primary motivation in using her as the pollen donor in this new fem line. She is so intolerant to powdery mildew that every plant in the garden can be completely covered in it and this plant, sitting right next to them and touching them, will NOT get it, and will stay 100% unaffected.
While we imagine many of the plants in this line will show great resistance to powdery mildew, we did not purposely expose our plants to it during our trials, so we can’t speak to exact percentages or ratios of resistance, but we can say that we had zero instances of powdery mildew in our flower garden during the most critical, wet months of the cold-weather season.
Deep Impact Generally speaking , plants from our Purple Pineapple Express line have tons of resin and colour– most of the progeny produce dark buds ranging from light pink to deep, dark purple, with a couple standard green plants here and there.
The fan leaves themselves are highly colourful, turning various shades of purple towards the middle to end of flower. Plants can also showcase a unique trait where the leaves are green on top and purple on the undersides. This certainly makes for a colourful garden! We also found that plants produce exceptionally nice flower structures that are large, fat, and rounded on top, just like we want them.
If one searches ‘Purple Pineapple Express’ on Google the first 3 pages of results show grow reports, smoke reports, PPE buds, concentrates, and clones for sale, which just goes to show how popular this plant has become over the years!
Deep Impact plants look very much, of course, like their parents- stunning! Generally speaking, the plants lean more toward the Ghost Og x Fucking Incredible mother side of things, being extremely stocky plants with minimal, but fat, sturdy Indica branches with large, solid, huge, round, heavy, dark-purple and lime-green buds.
Most leaves on most plants will turn sold dark purple, while some fan leaves will be green on top and purple on the undersides, sure to leave a deep impact in the garden. Every plant we grew had that old school skunk stink!
Flowering time is around 7.5-8 weeks.
