Strawberry Frost is a mostly indica variety from Madd Farmer Genetics and can be cultivated indoors (where the plants will need a flowering time of ±57 days ) and outdoors . Madd Farmer Genetics’ Strawberry Frost is a THC dominant variety and is/was never available as feminized seeds.
With the Strawberry Frost we aimed to achieve short, thick stemmed, large budded plants that were some of the frostiest we have created to date. We took our SCDC (Strawberry Cough/DeepChunk) mom and open pollinated her with our Space Queen male, better known as The Dick. What we have created is a carbon copy to what we had hoped for. A strain that can be lollipopped with giant mains, or topped and screened for many bud sites with larger than average bud size. The StrawFrost will have higher than average potency, possibly being too narcotic for those who prefer a more Sativa type effect, and a solid yield of above average size and density. This isn’t for the Sativa fan. This strain has one purpose. and it serves it well. Excellent muscle relaxer that will really aid in sleep for you insomniacs.
Basic / Breeders Info
Madd Farmer Genetics’ Strawberry Frost Description
Frost can decimate an entire berry crop, especially if the berries have been exposed to warming temperatures. A freeze following warm spring weather can be devastating. And strawberries are particularly susceptible to frost damage since they are often in bloom before the last frost free date.
Strawberry Plants and Frost
Strawberry blossoms are most sensitive to frost right before and during opening. At this juncture, temperatures below 28 F. (-2 C.) will damage the blossoms, so some frost protection of strawberries is integral to the harvest. Frost protection of strawberries is less important when the flowers are still in tight clusters and just barely peaking from the crown; at this point they will tolerate temps as low as 22 F. (-6 C.).
How Do You Protect Strawberry Plants from Frost?
Commercial farmers do a couple of things to protect the berries from frost and so can you. To protect them from winter temps, mulch over the strawberries in the fall to early winter with straw or pine needles. In the spring, move the mulch between the plants after the last frost. This will help retain soil moisture, retard weeds, and prevent dirty irrigation water from splashing on the fruit.
Matures in 150 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
Move the seeded trays under bright fluorescent lights at a constant temperature of 18-24°C (65-75°F). Seedling heat mats work very well. Germination may take anywhere from 7 days to 6 weeks: Be patient. Once germination occurs, increase ventilation around the plants to prevent damping off.
Sow indoors in the winter. An earlier start may result in berries the first year. Start any time between December and the beginning of February. After that time, they will still produce plants, but berries may not be produced during the first season. Transplant out at least 3 weeks after last frost. Strawberry seeds will germinate at any time of the year if some simple steps are taken.
