NOTES FROM THE SEEDMAKER
WHAT IS CHERRY LIMEADE?
CherryLimeade is my cherry pie bagseed clone that I popped from seeds I got from Mike Meezy when Cherry Pie and Cookies weren’t widely known yet. I had three seeds and one died right when it came up and I was left with two females.
One was a tall narrow leaf plant with density and it was nice but the one I liked more and kept was a short purple plant that smelled like rose oil and lime rind.
WHAT ARE THE TERPS LIKE?
It’s very skunky from a couple feet away but up close is very sweet. I bred it with the brother of Lime1 which is Hollywood PureKush x BlackLime, a male I called “Limiest Male”. I didn’t get many seeds and when I planted them I had five females and one male that I kept.\
Of the five, four were what I consider to be close to the clone only Cherry Pie which isn’t impressive to me but one of them, the number 4, was better than her mom.
WHY THE NAME?
I made F2s with her and also backcrossed to her once before I lost her. Originally I was going to call the cross of this cherry pie and lime “key lime pie” but it was taken and a friend who took some of it to SanFrancisco named it CherryLimeade.
WHAT IS THE PEDIGREE?
CherryLimeade is very mold resistant and tastes amazing. It’s won the Emerald Cup and one year I think 6 of the top 20 entries were descended from that bagseed cherry plant.
Aficionado’s Cherry Noir and White Cherry Truffle and a lot of their other lines are based on CherryLimeade #4. The same CherryPie bagseed cut is also the mother of Cherry West, Cherry Limepop, CherryLicorice etc. There’s no BlackLimeReserve in CherryLimeade. BlackLimeReserve is HollywoodPureKush x BlackLime x ChemdawgSpecialReserve.
