Apple Fritter

Apple Fritter combines Animal Cookies and Sour Apple, created by Lumpy’s Flowers in Northern Carolina. It’s a fine example of misleading appearances, with buds looking fairly average in color, size, and number of pistils yet boasting extremely high THC levels of up to 32%. This gave it celebrity status, making it worthy of the High Times Hall of Fame of the World’s Strongest Strains.

The Apple Fritter is a multi-award-winning strain, mainly due to its strength and delicious flavor. It has a 50/50 indica-to-sativa ratio. Its unique terpene and cannabinoid profile make Apple Fritter an ideal strain (cultivar) for managing inflammation, chronic pain, and insomnia.

Apple Fritter combines the energizing effects of Sour Apple with the smooth relaxation of Animal Cookies. Both of its parents are strongly indica yet have produced evenly balanced offspring.

The strain is named after the famously sweet apple pie pastry, as its creators found it closely mimics the sweet taste. It’s sweet and apple-like on the inhale, with notes of vanilla on the exhale.

growing strains

Apple Fritter plants are bushy and grow to medium size. Unfortunately, as a relatively new strain, its growing information remains hard to come by. We know that it responds well to topping and trimming, helping you to maximize your yield.

Indoors you can expect a yield of around 10-15 ounces (425 grams) per plant, while outdoors, you’re looking at approximately 14-16 ounces per plant (400-450 grams). This strain isn’t the best when fighting off diseases, so it is something to be aware of if you want to grow it. Buds are dark olive green with fiery orange trichomes and silky purple undertones.


The height your weed plant grows depends on a variety of factors. If you’re growing outdoors, giving your plants lots of space for the roots will allow them to reach around 5 feet (152 centimeters) tall. Having insufficient light exposure and smaller space will result in shorter plants.

Humidity and Temperature

Based on Apple Fritter’s parent strains, it thrives in a Mediterranean environment. Humidity control is fairly important with this strain, given its susceptibility to damage and disease. Keep humidity at 70% during the seedling stage and decrease this to 40% during the flowering stage to optimize the health of your buds.


Flowering time is standard at around nine to 10 weeks. Growing outdoors, you can expect a harvest time around October.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s Apple Fritter good for?

Because of its high THC content, Apple Fritter is great for having right before you hit the hay to help you sleep like a baby. Some users like its medicinal effects, including pain relief, but this may be overkill if you only have mild symptoms.

Is Apple Fritter an indica or a sativa?

The Apple Fritter weed strain is a balanced hybrid cannabis strain at 50% indica and 50% sativa. The indica strain originates in the Middle East, known for producing a more level-headed relaxing high. Sativa is tied to East Asia and is responsible for producing energizing mind highs. This strain has such strong relaxing effects that it’s considered more of an indica than a sativa. However, these terms do not mean much alone, as some sativas may be sedative and some indicas more stimulating.

How does Apple Fritter make you feel?

Apple fritter is a powerful mood booster, making you feel on top of the world. Your mind will be busy with newfound creative energy, while your body will remain cool, calm, and collected. You’ll be left wanting to sink back into the couch and ride the wave of this long-lasting high.
