Frisian Dew (Dutch Passion)
A commercial outdoor strain, it is reliable, easy-to-grow and forms a tall, wide bush. It doesn't smell much and produces big yields. Frisian Dew finishes by the beginning of October and is mold-resistant. There are two phenos - the more productive green one and the purple one. Some people grow this strain indoors.
Despite the low THC content stated by the breeder, Frisian Dew is not weak. You just have to smoke more. It's a creeper. It makes you giggle and is sexually arousing. The purple pheno is weaker and more boring than the green one.
Pretty generic. Some people find hints of nuts and lavender. The purple pheno tastes better.

The most beautiful outdoor variety we have ever encountered. A Super Skunk female x Purple Star male, seen after 3 years of selecting clones. Although we produced many Skunk/Purple hybrids in the past 20 years, we have never seen anything coming close to this hybrid. Light purple coulour. 50% Indica, 50% Sativa. Very high yielder, very good stem to leave ratio (only little leaves). Not susceptible to mold. Absolute premium quality outdoor strain. A must for the outdoor grower.
Dear friends at DP: could you breed a Frisian Dew strain with only the green/ white pheno? That is the absolute bomb or outdoor in northern europe!
Frisian Dew ist a phantastic outdoor strain but not so good in tropical climates. It is better in the cold.
I got two phenos. Both of them were good, but one was much better. The small one. Long branches, full of hard buds - donkey dicks. Harvest - first week of october. Very pleasant hugh, my favourite. Definitely grow again!
awesome outdoor plant! purple pheno stinks of lavender, and the green pheno just stinks. green pheno is a stronger stone by quite a bit
This plant needs from spring to fall, usually it finishes around late-september. This plant is only for outdoor and loves lots of sun, but does very well in northern europe also.
Stevie 'the skunk' Smith (dutch-passion.nl):
Top strain. Been growing this outdoors in the UK for years. This is a bullet proof outdoor strain that yields well and even performs in poor conditions. Very nice potent smoke. The only outdoor variety you will ever need. Good work Dutch Passion, your Frisian Dew has kept my outdoor plot delivering year after year. Love it !
Beautiful Plant, nice yield. It takes in the Czech Republic from March (pregrow indoors, in the field in May) till mid October. Easy plant, 2 Problems in CZ - mould because of some heavy rain and very attractive for snails (not only for them). A nice high, very sweet aftertaste. I love the view. The effect could be a bit longer-lasting. Seems to have a good load of CBD : pain relief accomplished !!! As a cash-crop the best imho, not much trimming / tumbling necessary. 3 Thumbs up!
Beautiful strain, big buds but mould outdoor. Needs protection against rain and cold.
need an outdoor? take that strain! easy to grow easy to handle, easy to get one pound per plant!
This grass made grow in outdoor was made to grow in pots and transferred after 1 month and 2 weeks in the earth, is subject to mold and pests! It should prevent with various products. the color purple is only in cool climates, the harvest was approximately 375 gr per plant.
in my expierience when dealing with dutch passion add two weeks to whatever they say their plants will be done by outdoors. it may be just the differant climates im in the us they are in holland but they never finich when they say they are going to.
duuude i am currently about to help harvest a 6.5 foot frisian dew outdoor planted mid march this year. its looking like at least a 1 pound christmas tree with a 4 person trimming team working for possibly 1 or 2 hours cutting and trimming.
bottom line - complete outdoor strain - there is literally no point in growing it indoors since it responds so well to sunlight and physical stress (wind/heat etc... we had a bruuutal summer) and i would highly recommend it as a medicinal strain. we tested a couple buds a week and a half ago and i was quite happy. im swayed. im growing a few of my own next year
I am growing a few Frisian dew outside this year, I am also growing about 6 other strains... I have to say that I am quite pleased with the Frisian dew and it will likely be the mainstay in next years crop. Looks like it is going to yeild well and is finishing up early in September! I hope it smokes as good as it looks!
From - the seeds are from Dutch Passion, it was grown here in the islands!
When - October
Smell - Kind of like unsweet fruit. Has a slight scent thats somewhat similar in most "purple" strains.
Taste - Similar to smell on the exhale, but spicy on the inhale. This is more for smoking than vaping.
Type of Buzz - Very comfortable and relaxing.. Though I wouldn't say "euphoric".. Nice mix of indica and sativa qualities, not overbearing at all.. Pretty high ceiling.
Length of Buzz - About and hour.. Tapers off very slowly over a longer period. Doesn't take much either. Kick's back up easily.
Best Medicinal Use - Not massive appetite stimultion, but definately takes care of nausea. It's helping a bit with the nerve pain in my arms.
Overall - Great stuff! Not the best on it's own, not as pronounced in its mixed qualities as strains like Blue Dream... But mixes really great with a strong sativa..
I know a guy who's growing one indoors under 400w hps and, let me tell you that it's stretching in growing stage much more than the other strains he's got. I'ts definitely an outdoor plant, looks very sativa, with slender leaves, pale color...who knows how much will it strech during flowering...
I grew the FD OD this year.
I could agree with what folks are saying about the stretch, it certainly is very sativa.
To elaborate on what 420Mellon said, it has a very nice floral/fruity/berry flavor, and sure gets me high as fuck, and I smoke shitloads. It does yield well, and was my easiest plant to trim OD.
However, there is a CRAP pheno that doesn't yield for SHIT, and has a very plain flavor. So if you're looking to grow straight from seed, and get solid results, than FD isn't the one for you.
However, it was very easy to grow, just feed the SHIT outta it in flower, and it yielded nice, dense buds that once I trimmed them VERY well, some folks had trouble believing was grown OD.
I love it, and am planning on buying more beans myself.
I am doing my second grow with them. Lots of phenos and like supersonic says it finishes 25sept-15 oct , depending on the phenotype. Yield is excellent. High and taste too except for the dark purple pheno, i hate it, tastes like earth. The other ones smell from sweet , fresh to candy
3/3 germintated, fast growing and fast flower, no hermaphrodites
If you grow outdoors i would recomend trying this strain. There are two different phenotypes for this plant. One is purple and looks just like the picture and the other stays green. It finishes early, begining of september in canada. Has a relly good high and taste. Smells perfumey or like some kind of cleaning product. Good yields, 1/2 pound to a pound outdoors.
bud man bret (azarius.net):
im amazed at how pretty this plant is. she grows to looks just like her photo ;0)
i grew her indoors, "even though she is an outdoor strain". she did just fine indoors. under 400 wat hps, she veg'd for only 2 weeks under 18 hours of light. i switched to 12 hours of light when she decided it was time to flower on her own. i found that wierd, but with no regrets..
I have grown maybe 13 ten-packs of frisians, about a grands worth of seeds, 13 is unlucky for some but mine did ok, if a nuke-war ended the world 3 species would survive: cockroaches, rats and frisian dew they really are bomb proof, heres a purple pheno that turned almost black, it was a very striking looking plant
Fresian is perhaps the best outdoor strain we have in terms of the UK outdoor grower. Obviously in other, hotter countries, we would recommend other varieties as well. But she is tough and spent 3 years being selectively bred until we got, what we felt, was the best looking outdoor variety we had seen.
This was mine season gone.. Give these plants good soil and plenty of air and they grow massive, i had one in a wood clearing that was just to inclosed and lost it all to stem rott as it was to humid and no air, it was about 10 foot when i lost her :( BUT this one was in good soil and a nice open space, was topped once and then tied down.. it ended up about 9 ft and 6ft wide with big heads all round.. never had scales but was 10oz and over
Purple pheno is an average smoke at best, dull, cold and boring. Green pheno is pretty damn good, very skunky. I'm not a fan of skunk type highs but you guys who do get on with them will like this one.
They are very hardy and with the right care and attention paid to drying and curing, you can end up with bag quality looking buds.
Don't be put off by what seems to be a 'low' THC level. She wouldn't be as popular as she is if she was a poor smoke. Roll a joint of this stuff and you are stoned afterwards and no mistake.
Its a good stone Gnome, very decent, my only issue was taste, i grew a few and they was all bland, but i might have been unlucky
One of my top three commercial seedbank outdoor strains,always guaranteed a result as she doesnt let you down
Im no good at smoke reports but heres my experiance, ive not smoked a great deal of this mainly because ive been smoking more flavoursome stuff i have, so last night i rolled a frisian
the taste and smell, with the pheno i had last night its still like crayons and like another guy said plasticine, its like breathing in the air in a school nursery
I read in this thread that its low THC well really dont let that put you off.. last night i had a silly grin watching tv, ready to laugh at any moment, and did chuckle quite a few times,i was
very smiley, its a nice warm stone.
not long after watching my tv program my eyes got heavy and i was asleep, the frisian joint deffo helped that, im crap at explaining stones but thats what i made of it
irish green grower:
This strain is dutch passions gift for those that like to grow monsters
My favourate outdoor strains by far
Ive grown frisian dew for the last 3 years outside in the uk and absoultly love it!
The first year we grew it, i grew 2 and ended up with a purple pheno and the green pheno. We lost about 25% of the green pheno due to mould but the purple one only had about 5% mould..
we grew them along side shaman and passion as they came in the same mixed pack,i found them to be ok with simular yields but the frisian is a much nicer smoke imo..
The 2 previous years ive only done 1 seed each time and ended up with the purple pheno!
I enjoy the smoke of frisian,its a change from the normal! always look forward to my frisian harvests..
when we transported our frisian back to my house last year.(that paranoid drive home) i put it in a big wicker basket with cling film stretched over it and just looked like a bowl of lavender
IMO Frisian Dew is a good benchmark for bud production
and with its unusual flavours and varying purple traits, it's quite a fun one to try at least once.
But rather like a couple of growers have said, it languished in my jars.
Neither pheno I got really appealed to me beyond that initial introduction.
At best it was like mince pies, but mostly, yeh, crayons.
The purple one had some nicer sweet smells but it was still overall similar to the green which I proved to myself with a blind test where I thought both must be the green pheno.
I found the buzz to be rather unpleasant in the green one - made me feel actually unwell like I'd just caught a virus or something like that, achey and tired, then knockout.
I have to say if that had been my first experience of weed I might have been put off.
The purple one was better, despite being weaker, it was pleasant at least....
