Fruity Jack info:
The parents used to create Fruity Jack come from Reggae Seeds genepool, good friends and collaborators of our seed Company. To develop this strain we used the winner at 2012 Spannabis, Respect #13.
On the other hand, the male parent used was a reversed Jack the Ripper female: a Sativa phenotype with relatively short flowering which adds its unique flavor and Haze effect, besides greatly stabilizing the hybrid.
Cultivation of Fruity Jack
Ideal strain for both indoor and outdoor growers. High yields and top grade hashish.
Fruity Jack is a strong plant with few leaves and thus very easy to trim. As already mentinoed, the Jack The Ripper parent is ideal to produce stable offspring, as proved on several occasions.
Because of its Sativa dominance we recommend using 9-16 plants per m2. The SOG technique can also be used with 20 plants per m2 if seeds are put directly under 12/12 bloom photoperiod.
Please notice that this strain needs high amounts of nutrients to show its full potential. She requires full and abundant feeding during all stages. It is suitable for both hydroponics and soil.
Her resin-coated buds are ideal for production of high quality hashish and other resin concentrates.
Taste and effects
Fruity Jack provides a balanced blend of the flavors of both parents, with prevalent Haze notes and fruity and citric notes. It offers a wide range of fruity undertones, especially when vaped.
We recommend this strain to relax and listen to music, also to enjoy a quiet moment in nature.
The THC:CBD ratio of this genetics is 2:1. The CBD content balances the side effects of THC without losing its stimulant and psychoactive effect.
Opinions and questions (22)
I am growing legally in Boston USA in a 4x4 tent, finishing a Fruity Jack plant I started in the summer. Plant is growing in a 5 gallon = 20L grow bag together with 7 other plants, tent is a bit crowded but I like variety. Using 4 LED lights each pulling 265 true watts, so they are getting plenty of light. Doing a gradual harvest so i can sample the different offerings. I am totally impressed by this strain, the description on this website is very accurate, very milky/cheesy scent with definite fruity undertones, smells amazing and very inviting to me. Plant is on the small side and don't expect giant buds, but the quality makes up for the lack of quantity. I do not smoke and only vape, I recommend using a low temperature setting for this strain but each vaporizer is different so there is no magic number. I am vaping on 6 with an e-nano, would recommend 360-380F for the Mighty and maybe 575F for the Flowerpot. Consuming this gives me an overwhelming feeling of well-being, it doesn't hit super hard and the CBD provides a great counter balance to the THC, I love the strains with high concentrations of both. perfect for flavor chasers and older folks like me who favor a gentle vaping experience over massive, harsh THC hits. I will have the plant for a few more weeks and can answer any questions about it.

Thanks a lot for your feedback, we just love to hear positive reviews like yours from our strains!!
Enjoying some Fruity Jack buds myself too, awesome strain for daily use, lets you concentrate and perform all your tasks without a problem...and the flavor is just amazing!
Had a free sample seed of this strain buying K13 and Lemon Og Candy. Put it in guerrilla after 2 week in indoor April 27th somewhere in the Nord-EST of Italy. 40 liter smart pot with mixed soil and auto irrigation system due to a nearby source of water. Visited 4 times only for feeding and snail pellets . Due to guerrilla had no perfect control of flowering stages. Harvested september 4th flowers in senescence stage. No comment about the smoking taste because I like much more flowers in premature stage. Good floating and wandering head effects and high. Think there's a genotype with some autoflowering/automatic inheritance.

Thanks a lot for your report, a pitty you could not harvest it when you would have enjoyed it better. We haven't observed any autoflowering trait in Fruity Jack, have kept several mother plants, etc. without a problem. Have you had any issue?
I never got to appreciate my one grow of fruity jack, though she produced a bunch of sweet looking seeds in a cross with Rosetta Stone I still need to grow out. In that grow, she looked done via pistal appearance ( all dead) at day 48, but it was in the back of a tent and I couldn’t observe trichomes, so I assumed it was a strain where they turn early and let her go 63 days. When I harvested, all trichomes were amber or darker and the plant made your head feel funny and fuzzy and not much else. My mistake of course. My question is, have you seen the quick flowering like this? No other strain in that run seemed early, so I ruled out environment. I know Cindy genetics in JTR have a history of 7 week sativas showing up sometimes so thought I’d ask what you guys have seen. Thanks.

Until now, we've no news of the existence of Early flowering fenotipes of Frutty Jack :)
I've you find any again keep a clone ;)
¡Have a nice day!
Hello, Being in Bullas,Murcia Spain........wanting to grow outdoors, when would be the best time to start growing outdoors in that region of spain, with this genetic? Thank you

If you want large plants you can germinate in April and transplant in May, if you prefer medium plants germinate in May and transplant in June. The harvest will arrive in October.
I'm also interested in THCV, have you made any progress in getting your analysis posted?
04-02-2019 -> Philosopher Seeds says:
Hi Evan, we found THCV only in some individuals analized, that's why we don't post this information, the THCV is not stabilized in this strain. Regards
We carefully chose this seed since it orders both THC and CBD in a beautiful rare high amount. 2:1 perfect! You you have any test results by the way? But to my main question, To get the optimum out of both, the high amount of THC and high amount of CBD content. To get the most medical benefits out of both.....at what temperature would you suggest vapping the flower material? We are very excited! Thank you
28-11-2018 -> Philosopher Seeds says:
Well, THC's boiling point is 157ºC, while CBD's is between 160 and 180ºC. I'd suggest a first test at, let's say, 165ºC and then a second one at 180ºC. In this way you'll make sure that you're vaporising both compounds, and you can then decide which temperature to use according to the effects felt at each temperature. Hope it helped!
ive heard fruity jack can test at 6% thcv, is this true?
08-05-2018 -> Philosopher Seeds says:
Hi, we found THCV in some samples but never in this concentration. One of its parents Jack the Ripper has THCV in concentration near 6%
I read in an online article Fruity Jack / Jack El Frutero cannabis contains 5.5% THCV. Can you provide any further information about the THCV content in Fruity Jack / Jack El Frutero? Thanks!
17-11-2017 -> Philosopher Seeds says:
Hi Josh, it depends on phenotypes, but there's presence and it contains a 5.5% media. We are working on upload all our certificated analysis during 2018. Thank you!
Seen pictures of Yumbolt but seems as though it's now discontinued, not the hybrids but this original pheno of Yumboldt https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpwUPwe3F0A not sure that's exactly the one you used to have? most growers have access to one of Yumbolt's hybrids, such as, Critical Mass, Afghan Kush, Ak-47, etcetera. I bought the pack from Sagarmatha and found that golden phenotype, almost 20 years ago now, LoL, so maybe you see why i recently purchased CBD Seed's Yumboldt, and am now enquiring with you for more info. please?
04-04-2017 -> Philosopher Seeds says:
We used to have a Yumboldt cut which was selected in Barcelona in 2001. It was sweet and fruity, with earthy notes, pretty compact plant. Unfortunately we are not keeping that cut anymore.
All the best!
Hi there, Why did you deleted my comment below?: I just got the Ripper mix and I am quite exited :D To be honest I am total beginner and I will really appreciate some advices on how to feed the plant and which nutrients it needs for good outdoor performance. Did I ask something wrong? Thanks!
07-03-2017 -> Philosopher Seeds says:
Hello. I am really sorry. It is a mistake on my part, I have done a bad manipulation and erased your comment twice. It's a coincidence. In terms of your question, you would have to prepare an enriched substrate. For more details, I suggest you contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you soon.
Hi, i would be interested into Fruity Jack, but have some questions: What size of container you would recommend for growing on the balcony? What would be the average hight of Fruity Jack? During the grow, is the plant developing a strong smell (neighboring balconys)? Thanks in advance, Thomas
22-11-2016 -> Philosopher Seeds says:
Hi! Fruity Jack is a very good strain with a ratio THC:CBD of 2:1. I recommend you to germinate and pass it to a small pot (yogurt, for instance). After, you can pass it to a 3 L pot and, in July, before the floration, put it in the final pot. On a balcony a 10 to 20 liters pot would be enough if you don't want monster plants, although the height can depend on many factors: -light hours -pot size -germination date With 20 liters, you could have plants from 1.20 to 1.50 m. They smell a bit during the growing. If you have any further queries write to us again. Regards!
