Breeder Nirvana Seeds crossed the legendary Jack Herer with Skunk #1 to get the tropical blend that is Papaya. As its name indicates, the breeder claims that Papaya has a tropical fruity aroma along with a spicy taste, as well as average THC levels that hover around 20%.
The balanced hybrid is a bit difficult to grow, as it produces heavy, dense colas but the relatively thin stems and branches. To ensure an optimal harvest, Nirvana Seeds recommends supporting the branches with the Sea of Green (SOG) method and feeding the plant potassium. In a nine-to-10-week flowering cycle, Papaya plants yield frosty light green colas with wispy orange stigma hairs. Growers should expect yields between 350 to 450 grams per square meter when grown indoors, which is the best environment for this particular strain.
