Kurple Fantasy x Rainbow Crushers

I was excited to see this cross in one of Cannarado’s releases. A while back, I enjoyed some Old Man Purps from Deschutes Growery in Oregon and really appreciated its genetics. Kurple Fantasy, a descendant of the Old Man Purps cut, caught my attention as a close alternative since I couldn’t find the original.

The Structure

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect in terms of growth patterns since I’ve heard purps strains are known for modest yields, but this cross seems to defy that notion, possibly due to Rainbow Crusher’s influence. During the first four weeks of the vegetative phase, the plants showed wider growth with large fan leaves. But around the one-month mark, two of them took a turn, shooting up in height. I decided to top those two to manage the growth. Looking back, I realized I missed a beat by not topping the third plant, which ended up with a light burn on the upper part. Sturdy stems were common to all, and those I topped responded exceptionally well.

How They Compared

Bud structure varied among the three plants, but each had decent yields. Plant #3 was the standout on weight, yielding the most. Her buds were dense and plenty. Her strong structure & round bud shape were impressive. Plant #3 was also the standout in smell. She emitted a complex aroma after a few weeks of curing—hints of grandma’s boysenberry pie with a robust musky undertone. Plant #2 was the standout for visual appeal. She had bright orange & deep brown pistils that emerged from sharp bracts. The deep green leaves on #2 provided a contrast to the shimmering trichomes under the fuzzy pistils surrounding the buds. The resin glands were plump & glistened.

Takeaway

Growing this Kurple Fantasy cross was truly enjoyable. Witnessing her evolution over the course of her lifecycle was quite a show. Although I saw some deep shades of green, there was no presentation of purple anywhere on the three phenos that I grew out. This cross had some serious vigor. While it demanded some careful topping, it was manageable. When I grow out the rest of my seeds for this strain, I will keep in mind, this cross has a hearty appetite for water and nutrients, especially calcium. I will also ensure I implement more toppings for all the plants and leave the height necessary for her large stretch in flowering.
