Strawberry Banana is a 70% Indica dominant hybrid that is a cross of Banana Kush and Bubblegum. This multiple award-winning strain was created by Reserva Privada, a subdivision of DNA Genetics, in collaboration with Dutch seed bank, Serious Seeds. They decided to select a Banana Kush female from Crockett’s Farm to be crossed with a Strawberry phenotype of Bubblegum, provided by Serious Seeds. The breeder’s intentions were to create a high THC-containing strain with a sweet, tropical flavor.
