Fruit flavored buds

Dear Ed,
I am growing outdoors in the 30th latitude. How do I get the buds to taste like various fruits such as lime, grapefruit or berry?


Those flavors are genetic factors which have been bred into the varieties. The odor molecules are essential oils, the mono- and di-terpenes. These evaporate at low temperatures, starting at about 32 degrees celsius (90 F). There are quite a few varieties which yield fruit flavored buds. Choose one of them.
