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.
