NOTES FROM THE SEEDMAKER
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. 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. 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. It’s 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.
