Tangerine Dream is no doubt a trip. With its high THC content and low CBD percentage, Tangerine Dream delivers a quick, intense, yet uplifting cerebral high. Not to mention, it boasts sweet and spicy citrus flavors and aromas to match.

For being essentially indica, Somango delivers a happy, uplifting buzz with a side of chill. Moreover, its buds are beautiful, dense, and frosty, looking as delicious as they taste.
Somango isn't the easiest of sweet and fruity strains to grow, but best believe it is worth every bit of the wait. Although Somango can thrive both indoors and outdoors, outside she can stretch high to the sky when planted in a warm, sunshiny atmosphere. Once you get to savor all the yummy terpenes and cannabinoids, you'll be glad you made room for her in your garden.
Californian Orange is the perfect combination of indica and sativa. This fruity 50/50 hybrid is slightly sedative, but also uplifting and euphoric. A few hits of California will have even the steadfast introvert ready to socialize in the sun. Furthermore, it has a sweet orange aroma that's invigorating in and of itself.

Between its mango aromas and tropical flavors, smoking on Karibbean Mango is its own oasis. With that said, be cautious about lighting up this hybrid during the day. Its experience is so sweet that you won't want to partake in anything else, not that this smokable narcotic gives you much of an option.
Growing Karibbean Mango requires little expertise. With a modest amount of TLC, this cannabis plant can outgrow a coconut tree and produce buds almost as dense as the fruit it’s named after. And it's pest-resistant to boot, so no worries about bugs going to town on your crop and ruining its progress.
Crystal Candy gets its name honest. Smoking this indica-dominant strain, with its sweet strawberry and melon aromas and flavors, tastes and smells like if you were toking on legit candy, but without the extreme sugar rush. Instead, the fruity hybrid offers a balanced cerebral and body buzz—one that doesn't take long to feel yet will last for hours.
Luckily, you don't have to be an expert to cultivate Crystal Candy. Indoors, the hybrid develops exceptional yields. Outdoors, though, you can anticipate a plant that's even more massive when sowed in large pots or garden beds.
At last, a sweet and fruity sativa-dominant strain. Jamaican Dream, which provides a variety of fruit flavors and smells from strawberry to citrus, is ideal for consumers who enjoy a balanced bud. It hosts not only a generous amount of THC, but also a little CBD, bringing users motivation, energy, and positive vibes. Along with a slight tingling sensation, this strain has the potential to serve as an aphrodisiac.
Growing Jamaican Dream and its impressive self comes with barely any difficulties. Its ridiculously large yields will amaze even champion growers, especially when planted outdoors. But feel free to grow Jamaican Dream indoors too; this sweet-tasting flower thrives just as well inside as it does outside.
Strawberry D-Lite is part indica, part sativa. And boy, is this fruity strain delightful. Aside from citrusy and berrylicious flavors and aromas, you get relaxing, uplifting, sociable, and happy effects for a well-balanced high from Strawberry D-Lite. Whether it's at your friend's house or smack dab in the middle of the woods, it's always a party when Strawberry D-Lite is invited.
No matter if you're growing Strawberry D-Lite indoors or out, this satisfying hybrid doesn't produce outstanding yields, nor does it turn out to be very tall. Still, it is one of the fastest-flowering strains of its kind, and one of the tastiest at that. Think of it as strawberries in cannabis form.
If you love sweet weed, then it gets no more pleasing than the citrus-flavored Colombian Sweet. Colombian Sweet is an indica-dominant hybrid that boasts both sativa and indica effects, all wrapped up in one bud. In addition to relaxing consumers and lifting their spirits high, this strain encourages socialization, which can come in handy for the quiet and reserved type.
If grown outdoors, Colombian Sweet will develop more than decent yields. As for indoors, they aren't as impressive, but the buds are dense, healthy, and luscious nonetheless. Not to mention, the flowering time is short and sweet thanks to its indica ancestors.
The strain name Fat Banana is not to be taken lightly. Fat Banana is an indica-dominant flower that packs a mean punch. Veterans will love the body buzz and the strong, euphoric kick that Fat Banana brings to the table. Novices, on the other hand, probably won't be able to handle the out-of-this-world high, and therefore should proceed to smoke on this tropical hybrid with caution.
Fat Banana is also known for inducing the munchies, so if you're trying to watch what you eat and how much, steer clear. To help it reach its full potential, it's best to grow Fat Banana outdoors in warmer climates. You can still plant it inside, but the yields won't be nearly as large as they could be.
Last, but certainly not least, one of the top sweet and fruity strains is the sativa-dominant Orange Cream. Orange Cream is semi-skunky, but that doesn't make it any less fruity. Orange Cream also features citrus and lemon flavors. With the variety of flavors combined, Orange Cream guarantees serious taste. Moreover, its cerebral high is exhilarating and will get you in gear to participate in all sorts of activities, from mountain climbing to skateboarding.
Inside or outside, Orange Cream will flourish regardless. In addition to lots of resin, Orange Cream produces large yields. And once the flowering stage is complete, growers get to admire its sparkly trichomes, which alone are a sight to see and provide almost as much uplifting motivation as a citrus energy drink.
