Supernova Gardens’s masterpiece came from crossing two already established indica-dominant hybrids to bring forth Purple Punch.

Purple Punch is one good-looking strain. You may have seen it in your favorite dispensary and picked it up solely for its bag appeal. We can’t blame you. It’s a colorful treat to the eyes in a sea of typical green we’re used to. Its flowers have thick, round buds covered with layers of frosty trichomes that make them glisten under the sun. Its calyxes are a mix of purple and bright green with red pistils.
The aroma and flavor are very similar. The scent is so potent, the moment you smell it, it will hit you hard! It smells and tastes a lot like grape-flavored Kool-aid with notes of berry and vanilla. Some also taste tinges of grassy, herbal, and earthy notes of Kush.
When you inhale, the smoke is dank and will still taste like grape but it features a tart citrusy and berry flavor. When you exhale, the aftertaste of grape candy settles deliciously on your tongue and throat. Purple Punch’s sweet scent and taste make for a great dessert strain. If this isn’t your drift, you better avoid it as it may be too strong and candied for your liking.

If this is you live in a location with a Mediterranean like temperature, you may opt for outdoor cultivation. If you don’t, you need an indoor set up with a good heating system and high powered lights to achieve its requirements.

Topping must also be done to assure proper sunlight or light reaches the whole plant. It is resistant to mildew and mites but caterpillars are its greatest foe.
