What do we know about the unknown/legendary Apple Fritter?

Unknown or Legendary Apple Fritter

The US is home to some big-name strains, and Apple Fritter is one of them. A descendant of well-known genetic lines like Cookies and Diesel, Apple Fritter packs bold dessert aromas, plenty of THC, and a solid genetic background. Keep reading to learn more about this famous US hybrid and Apple Fritter's history, origins, effects, grow traits, and more.

Strain History of Apple Fritter

Apple Fritter was created by Lumpy's Flowers, a self-proclaimed "true craft cannabis legacy brand" from Northern California. Based in the Napa wine region, Lumpy's Flowers has three locations where it breeds and cultivates its ever-growing catalog of strains. True to the demand of the North American market, Lumpy's Flowers' strains boast exotic aromas that combine trending notes of fruit and desserts as well as superior levels of THC.

Apple Fritter is by far Lumpy's Flowers' most iconic and best-selling strain. It was created by Lumpy's co-owner Jason Dias in 2013 and is a cross of Sour Apple and Animal Cookies. Back then, Jason was still working on his crosses out of his basement and recalled having a particularly unfruitful experience while working with Sour Apple and Animal Cookies. However, Jason was pleasantly surprised by the last four seeds from experiments, where he found two that forever changed his career—Reckless Rainbow and Apple Fritter.

Since its creation, Apple Fritter has become remarkably popular among both recreational and medicinal cannabis users. Besides being Lumpy's Flowers flagship hybrid, Apple Fritter has also been used to create many other strains (see Genetic Lineage below). In 2016, Apple Fritter by Lumpy's Flowers also won 2nd Place in the Hybrids category at the Northern California High Times Cannabis Cup.

Genetic Lineage of Apple Fritter

Apple Fritter is a direct descendant of both Diesel and Cookies genetic lines. Specifically, it's the direct offspring of Sour Apple and Animal Cookies, two popular hybrids treasured for their unique aromas and strong effects.

Apple Fritter's first parent, Sour Apple, is a cross of Sour Diesel and Cinderella 99, initially bred by Top Shelf Seeds. As its name suggests, it boasts a rich aroma of caramelized and spiced apples and pungent diesel fuel. Originally, Top Shelf's Sour Apple was only available as a clone, but other seedbanks have since gone on to offer variations of this strain in both feminized and auto seed form.

Apple Fritter's second parent is Animal Cookies, a direct descendant of the legendary GSC genetic line. Also known as Animal Crackers, Animal Cookies is a potent hybrid bred from GSC and Fire OG. It boasts sweet dessert overtones with earthy undertones and hints of sourness, and its effects are very heavy—ideal for a quiet evening on the couch.

Physical Characteristics of Apple Fritter

Unfortunately, the original Apple Fritter by Lumpy's Flowers isn't available for purchase in seed form. However, other seedbanks offer their own unique versions of Apple Fritter, all of which offer slightly different grow traits and physical characteristics.

In general, Apple Fritter is a moderately-sized strain. It produces bright-green foliage and leaves with a typically hybrid shape that falls somewhere between the fine leaves of a sativa and the thicker appearance of an indica. Apple Fritter plants usually reach heights of 120–150cm, which is also fairly normal for modern hybrids.

Many growers find that Apple Fritter plants have some clear indica traits, particularly a stocky/bushy structure and fast flowering time. They also develop only a few side branches, though topping, LST, and super cropping may help encourage different growth profiles.

Come harvest time, Apple Fritter plants usually take on darker hues as they use up energy stores in their leaves. Their branches typically grow heavy with dense, gray-green flowers with fiery red pistils and a shiny coating of glassy resin. Some Apple Fritter varieties may also develop beautiful dark purple hues.

Properties & Effects of Apple Fritter

Apple Fritter is a very potent, high-THC cannabis strain. It regularly produces up to 24% THC, though some varieties reportedly test as high as 30%. It is generally low in secondary cannabinoids like CBD and CBN, contributing to the strain's strong cerebral effect. Thanks to its high resin production, Apple Fritter is also rich in terpenes, particularly pinene, caryophyllene, and limonene—all contributing to its intense aromas.

As its name suggests, Apple Fritter boasts a delicious fruity aroma with slightly acidic/sour undertones reminiscent of tart green apples. Users with a trained nose may also pick up on more subtle aromas of black pepper and spice (such as cinnamon) as well as cookies.

While different varieties of Apple Fritter may obviously produce slightly different effects, the strain is generally renowned for inducing a strong mental euphoria that rapidly washes over the body to create a warming and relaxing sensation. For users with a light to moderate tolerance, Apple Fritter will likely produce a sleepy, couch-lock effect.

However, seasoned smokers with a higher tolerance can ride out the couch-lock effect, leaving them feeling uplifted, talkative, and even creative. Given its potential for a strong physical stone, Apple Fritter might not be ideal for daytime use (though this may depend on your personal experience with cannabis).

Uses of Apple Fritter

Apple Fritter is incredibly popular among both recreational and medical cannabis users. Given its strong effects, most users report using this strain at night or after work, though this may vary depending on your tolerance and personal experience.

In general, Apple Fritter produces an uplifted euphoric head rush that quickly elevates the mood while helping to relieve feelings of stress and anxiety. Then, as the effects become more physical, most users experience a deep sense of relaxation. Recreational users report using Apple Fritter to:

• Relax and unwind after work

• Binge-watch movies and television series

• Listen to music

• Read

• Do household chores

Thanks to its balance of mental and physical effects, Apple Fritter is also very popular among medical cannabis patients. While everyone is different, many medical cannabis patients report using Apple Fritter for a wide range of mental and physical disorders. Be aware, however, that, like all high-potency cannabis strains, Apple Fritter may produce adverse side effects in some people, including dizziness, paranoia, dry mouth and red eyes.

Cultivation/Production of Apple Fritter

Limited information is available for the original Apple Fritter by Lumpy's Flowers. However, Apple Fritter varieties bred by other seedbanks generally have indica-like grow traits and can be cultivated in various setups, including indoors, outdoors, and in greenhouses.

Given their generally bushy and stocky stature and tight bud structure, Apple Fritter plants are best grown in areas with low humidity and plenty of light. They can withstand cooler temperatures (which may help bring out dark blue and purple hues in some varieties) as well as a variety of training techniques.

Apple Fritter plants perform exceptionally well in soil-based grows, though they can also be grown in hydro setups. In general, Apple Fritter plants take roughly 8–10 weeks to flower indoors; outdoors, plants are typically ready to harvest by early October. Just be aware that Apple Fritter yields can vary greatly depending on the origin of the genetics, growing conditions, and grower skills.

Note that some seedbanks offer Apple Fritter in an autoflowering seed. When growing autoflowering varieties of Apple Fritter, you can expect smaller plants that naturally produce lighter yields. Apple Fritter auto plants typically veg for 3–4 weeks and flower for 8–10 weeks, meaning they can be harvest-ready 11–14 weeks after germination.

Apple Fritter: A Delicious, Extra Potent Hybrid

Apple Fritter is a popular hybrid bred in 2013 by Jason Dias, co-owner of Lumpy's Flowers, and boasts roughly 24% THC, an uplifting yet relaxing effect, and bold apple pastry aromas. The strain is a hit among both recreational and medical cannabis users and will likely retain its flagship status for years to come.
