Top Fruity Strains

Sometimes, you just want something sweet. When your sweet tooth has kicked in, there’s nothing quite like a fruity, delicious strain to scratch the itch.  Fruity marijuana tastes good, and it helps you feel good. Plus, there are plenty of strains to choose from. No matter what your favorite flavor is, these fruity marijuana strains delight your senses with fruity smelling weed that will improve any situation.

Fruity strains are some of the most popular varieties out there. They smell nice, they taste great, and they’re often easy to grow at home. You can choose from both sativa and indica dominant plants. There are also high CBD strains and a wide variety of THC options.

Here are some of the best fruity cannabis strains for both growing and effects.

Banana Kush

Banana Kush Growing

Banana Kush is one of the best California hybrids out there. It’s a potent combo of Skunk Haze and Ghost OG. The result is an impressively strong strain that can reach THC concentrations over 26%. The smell is just as intense as the high, leaving no doubt about the Banana name. This fruity kush stimulates a creative and energetic high, making it an excellent choice for daytime use.

Banana Kush is also a dream to grow. It’s technically a 60% indica-dominant hybrid, despite its sativa-like effects. Its Indica genetics help it grow easily indoors, staying under five feet. If you can keep humidity below 40%, indoors, each bushy plant can quickly deliver up to 17 ounces. Outside, it can produce even more if you live in the right climate.


Mango Kush

Mango Kush Growing

Mangos are a juicy and tropical treat that can boost anyone’s mood. Mango Kush can do that, too. This fruity kush may be the offspring of a Hindu Kush plant and a Mango Indica, but the jury’s still out. What’s known for sure is that Mango Kush is a delicious indica-dominant strain that’s loved by many medical users. The moderate THC content (16% max) and the relaxing indica effects help users treat their symptoms. CBD levels can also reach .3% or higher, making it even more useful.

You can get results fast with Mango Kush. It’s ready for harvest in seven to eight weeks. If you combine that with methods like Sea of Green (SOG) growing, you can get impressive yields. It’s a forgiving grow both inside and out, making it perfect for beginners. Despite its small size, plants can generate up to 14 ounces per square meter indoors and 16+ outside.


Blackberry Kush

When you’re considering intense, fruity indica strains, look no further than Blackberry Kush. It’s fruity and sweet, like a pie, making it one of the best smelling strains out there. The high is euphoric, yet keeps you relaxed on the couch for hours. The genetic combo of Afghani indica and other Blackberry strains leads to THC levels up to 20%. This also results in a gorgeous, dark green and purple plant.

Growing Blackberry Kush is rewarding when you have some experience. Using the right nutrients and pruning techniques helps keep the plant in good condition and prepares it for a big harvest. These compact plants can produce 17 ounces per square meter. That’s a lot of delicious berry flavor and only eight weeks of waiting.




The Blueberry strain is a truly historic blend. It is the result of several landrace strains and partly earned its name from its beautiful purple buds.  At THC levels that average around 16%, it’s one of the more moderate fruity indica strains.  Its heavy indica effects help users unwind and chill; however, the small amounts of indica keep it from being overwhelming. CBD levels can vary, but it frequently reaches .3% or higher. For therapeutic use, this well-rounded strain is hard to beat.

Despite its indica heritage, Blueberry is a tall plant. It can reach six feet and taller, so it has a slightly longer time to harvest. After nine weeks, though, you can see upwards of 18 ounces per square meter inside. If you have a warmer climate, you can even see 25 ounces per plant outside in mid-October. Cool evenings just strengthen the blue-purple color of the flowers, making it as beautiful as it is tasty.



Strawberry OG Strain

Prefer strawberries over blueberries? Thankfully, there are plenty of strawberry-scented strains to explore.

Strawberry Cough is the original Strawberry strain. The strawberry flavor is unmistakable, and so is the first hit. Even the most experienced smokers are likely to cough on the first try. However, the delicious flavor more than makes up for that. This fruity smelling weed is super-simple grow, getting tall and bushy without much work. Providing some airflow for your plants will help it produce 14 to 17 ounces in less than eight weeks, even in cool climates.

There’s also Strawberry Kush, which has a smooth, sweet effect and a sativa-heavy, euphoric high. This strain isn’t overly intense, however, making it a perfect choice for less-experienced smokers. THC levels can reach 18%, so it can also be a good choice for a daytime toke for long-time users. Harvests can range between 16 and 23 ounces per square meter, and it grows quickly. Keep an eye out for heat problems, and you’ll have a great harvest in no time.

There’s also a high CBD version of this strain,  Strawberry Kush CBD, which has the same fruity marijuana experience, but with minimal THC. It grows the same and produces similarly high yields, however THC levels do not exceed 1%, while CBD levels can reach as high as 9%. That makes it a perfect choice for a mellow, therapeutic experience.


Pineapple Haze

Pineapple Haze Strain

Pineapple Haze is the offspring of, you guessed it, Pineapple and Haze strains. This tasty strain inherited the best of both parents. Unlike many of the strains on this list, Pineapple Haze is not one of those fruity indica strains. Instead, it’s a 70% sativa strain, with a peppy, energetic high. Users report plenty of creative thoughts and the energy to follow through, so daytime smokers are in luck. Best of all, the strain tastes and looks like sweet, fresh pineapple.

Pineapple Haze takes a little longer to reach harvest – up to 12 weeks. However, THC levels reach as high as 19%, and yields on average, 19 ounces per square meter indoors. Those are some serious numbers, making it a great choice for patient people. Sunny and warm climates will provide the best results.


Super Lemon Haze

Super Lemon Haze strain review

There are few sativa strains known for their yields like Super Lemon Haze. This fruity marijuana boasts a sweet citrus taste, similar to lemonade while giving you the energy of a kid in a candy store. It’s the result of a cross between Lemon Skunk and Super Silver Haze. The result is a deliciously potent, 80/20 sativa hybrid. THC levels can easily reach 22%, putting it on many sativa-lovers wish lists.

Growing Super Lemon Haze is a rewarding task for growers with a little know-how. It’s an excellent strain for indoors, as long as you control humidity levels and keep it dry.  Plants get tall quickly, and they can produce up to 25 ounces per square meter. With the right environment, you’ll never see pests on your Super Lemon Haze plants, only yellow flowers withing dark green foliage, signaling a perfect nine-week harvest.


Cherry Pie

Cherry Pie

Rich, sweet, and potent, the Cherry Pie strain is a dessert lover’s dream. Rumors say it’s the offspring of Granddaddy Purple and Durban poison, and its effects certainly make it seem true. The indica-dominant strain provides a cerebral, blissful high that leads to complete and total relaxation. The potent 23% THC level makes it a solid choice for experienced smokers seeking a tasty treat.

Growing it is just as easy as toking it. In fact, it’s one of the easiest fruity marijuana strains to grow. Indoor harvests can reach as much as 14 ounces per square meter of space. It’s a pest-resistant strain, so outdoor growing can also be successful. Just give it lots of sunshine and very little humidity, and you’re going to see great bud in just eight weeks.


Orange Bud

Orange bud indoor cannabis bud

Orange Bud is a citrusy strain that’s a delight for the senses. The buds themselves are covered in orange hairs, while the scent is clearly a glass of orange juice with just a hint of earth. THC levels reach 18% regularly, for a solid all-around buzz. Unlike some fruity indica strains, it delivers a relaxing high that won’t stick you to the couch. Instead, you’ll either be laughing or intensely focused on creating.  

This strain is perfect for new growers. As a balanced 50/50 hybrid, it’s easy to grow inside and out. Plants stay compact and are great at avoiding pests. Yields can be low per plant, so using the Sea of Green method can help boost your numbers. Look for indoor harvests of up to 10 ounces per square meter.

FAQ About Fruity Strains

What gives cannabis its fruity taste?

Each and every cannabis strain has a specific terpene profile which gives the strain its distinct flavor.

What impacts the aroma of marijuana?

The strongest factor in the way marijuana smells is the age of the cannabis plant when it’s harvested. Cannabis that’s harvested earlier in its life cycles has a milder, less skunky scent. Terpenes also change the scent of marijuana. For example, cannabis strains with pinene will smell more like pine.
