The buds are popcorn-shaped with mint-coloured leaves and thick orange hairs, hinting at the strain’s visual appeal and resin production.



The Strawberry Shortcake strain is the fruitful result of Dark Horse Genetics’ intricate breeding process, combining the uplifting Juliet with the richly aromatic Strawberry Diesel. This careful selection aimed to capture the dense resin production and high yields, alongside flavourful fruity & diesel notes.

Growing conditions

The strain has medium growing difficulty, flourishing both indoors and outdoors with a flowering time of approximately 65-72 days. It is known for its above-average yields and significant resin production, making it a good choice for making extracts and hash.

The plants are compact with a medium height, offering large yields that sometimes necessitate support due to the weight of the resinous buds.
