Red Sapphire limited edition
ONE OF OUR LATEST MOST COMPLETE SATIVA/INDICA HYBRIDS AND PROBABLY OUR MOST SPECTACULARLY COLOURED VARIETY EVER
Although at ACE Seeds we’ve developed excellent examples of incredibly beautiful coloured varieties over the years, we can firmly state that Red Sapphire is a new twist in the tale that takes our breeding of colourful varieties to an even higher level.
A hybrid with complex genetic heritage, containing 2 tropical pure sativas (Malawi and Jamaican), a dominant sativa (Nepalese) and a colourful indica hash plant from Central Asia (Pakistan Chitral Kush), which fuse their best qualities in a perfect sativa/indica equilibrium.
Red Sapphire plants are sturdy and robust, growing to a manageable medium size with thick stems and powerful side branches with perfect moderate internodal distance that allows excellent light penetration throughout the plant, without being languid, and being able to sustain the heavy weight of the flowers during bloom without major problems, even in windy and rainy conditions.
Its spectacular flowers develop and mature in only 9 weeks, developing an intense pigmentation (regardless of the temperature) that paints the plants with all the colours of the rainbow: green, yellow, blue, purple... with most of the plants finally producing a deep reddish/fuchsia colour of incomparable beauty that has given the name to this variety. The buds are dense and medium/large in size, with excellent flower to leaf ratio (a pleasure to manicure), large and resinous ovaries, with a complex and exotic terpene profile (cherry, red fruit chewing gum, fine red wine and hashish), producing exuberant reflowerings in the last 2 weeks of bloom that crown its beauty and give it an exquisite final sativa touch.
Despite being a polyhybrid, all plants have a uniform development, requiring the same care, and finishing with similar sizes and flowering times. 75% of the plants show the reddish phenotype described above, while 25% remain green until the end, producing aromas of pear and green apple.
Red Sapphire doesn’t just stand out for its beauty, it has also been the most successful sativa/indica hybrid tested in our facilities in 2018, due not only to its versatility and ease of cultivation, but also to its vigour, rapid flowering, the low maintenance required to produce abundant harvests, its excellent resistance to the inclemencies of weather and against pests and fungi, and of course for its quality and for the perfect balance of its innumerable qualities, making this colourful variety a safe bet both for small private growers and for commercial purposes.

STRUCTURE: Strong and robust, manageable medium size, thick stems and powerful side branches easily supporting flower weight during bloom, with perfect moderate internodal distance allowing excellent light penetration throughout the plant, without being lanky.
BOUQUET: Appealing and complex fruity terpene profiles: Cherry, red fruit chewing gum, fine red wine in the colourful pheno; pear and green apple in the green pheno. Both with a delicious background of Pakistani and Nepalese hashish.
HIGH: A mild and pleasant high of very well focused, clear and cerebral effects at first, producing moderate euphoria, enhancing mood and accelerating though. Pleasantly electric, active and creative feelings but without paranoia or anxiety. This gives way to a more calm sensation, permitting relaxation but not with a physical couch-lock type stone... happy and perfectly able to function. Great smoke for daytime and afternoons, and to stimulate appetite.
It can be easily grown indoors. Very well suited to SOG culture due to its excellent yield in the main branches.
Outdoors it can be grown up to latitude 45º, both in hot climates and in climates where the flowering takes place with rain and low temperatures.
We recommend moderate levels of nutrients for the growing stage, and moderate/high for the flowering.
