The search for the Holy Grail - Infertile female cannabis
So I've just learned that there is a mutation in cannabis that produces flowers with no pistils, i.e the flowers are infertile and can't make seeds... it's a phenomenon called parthenocarpy - the same reason why we have seedless watermelon, bananas, etc. But it's possible in cannabis too apparently! 100% Pistil-less females... zero worry about any sort of pollination issues. Just clone and go. So cool!
Thanks to Breeder Steve via Twitter for the enlightenment. Breeder Steve is the founder of the now defunct Spice of Life seeds that ran back in the 90s. He is the original breeder of many legendary cuts like Sweet Tooth and Shishkaberry (both of which a certain large Dutch breeding company has now co-opted...cough *Barney's* cough). But I digress. 😑
I'll be doing some hunting for papers and articles on this topic so, stay tuned!
You'd get some right old moon rocks of a bud with these genetics tough?
TG You never seize to amaze me lol
Sounds obvious when you read about it, but it's not something I've ever thought about.
Mutations will always affect and effect the cannabis we love.
