Critical Orange Punch and the autoflowering Auto Critical Orange Punch are the result of some serious breeding work by Dutch Passion over the last few years with the Kritikal Bilbo genetics from Spain. The breeding process began by crossing elite cuttings of Grandaddy Purps and Orange Bud (Orange Punch). The result is a supreme smoke with a deep and rich taste but below-average yields. When this was further crossed with an XXL yielding THC rich Critical, the yields were dramatically improved thanks to the growth vigor of the Critical genetics.
The autoflowering version, Auto Critical Orange Punch, has rapidly become a best seller with lots of repeat growers that love the intense and unusually powerful high. Auto Critical Orange Punch was named in the ‘High Times Top-10 Strains of 2018’. This is a great honor for Dutch Passion genetics and a real boost for European breeding to be included alongside some of the very best new genetics from the USA. High Times tested some genuinely special genetics during 2018, being included in their top-10 list is a real achievement for the Dutch Passion breeding team.
The High Times judging team decided that Auto Critical Orange Punch stood out from the rest of the autoflower varieties thanks to the rare potency levels combined with generous yields. A great terpene profile, aroma, and taste add to a superb quality variety which you will want to grow again and again.
Both the feminized and autoflowering versions of Critical Orange Punch get plenty of repeat growers thanks to the trouble-free and easy growing nature of this genetics. It’s unusual to get new cannabis genetics which is this easy to grow with a real connoisseur quality and top shelf potency levels.
Critical Orange Punch takes around 8 weeks of 12/12 light to bloom. Auto Critical Orange Punch takes around 75 days to grow from seed to harvest under 20 hours of daily light. Both varieties have a great rich skunky citrus taste and an Afghan-hash aroma along with a long lasting powerful euphoric high. The genetics grow well under a wide range of conditions, meaning that less experienced growers can still achieve premium quality results.
If you are looking for some fresh cannabis genetics for your growroom then we really recommend trying Critical Orange Punch, or the auto version. These are genuinely some of the best new genetics our team has seen in recent years. We hope you enjoy them!October 11th 2018
