Sundae Thumper - A Brand new Mephisto Artisanal strain (+ Limited Edition drop and a free strain!)

Greetings Mephisto connoisseurs!

We’re stoked to announce the upcoming release for our second instalment in our Gelauto series, Sundae Thumper F4 (Gelato #45 (AKA Michael Jordan) (Sunset Sherbet x Thin Mint Cookies) x Forum Stomper). Dropping on November 6th! We’ve also got a nice tasty discount for early adopters & a free Sundae Thumper cross to giveaway with all seed orders, keep scrolling for details!We really hit the ground running with our first drop of this series, Iced ‘n’ Baked, and we’re continuing with that momentum with part 2 in Sundae Thumper. Again, we’ve trawled through archives, seed banks and cuttings of all the Gelato variants, combining them with our favourite complimentary Mephisto strains to deliver the best automatic Gelatos on the market.

A New Autoflowering Gelato Strain

Here’s an excerpt from our upcoming Sundae Thumper strain description

Sundae Thumper is the second installation in our Gelauto series, after our first foray in Iced ‘n’ Baked (Gelato #41). Gelato #45 (AKA Michael Jordan) is a less common phenotype than the wildly popular #41 (Bacio) (parent strain to our Iced ‘n’ Baked) but is no less of a slam dunk strain. She sports the characteristic rock-hard flowers the size of golfballs, and has strong ice-creamy aromas, with hints of lemon and gasoline that will take you on a magical mystery tour through our Mephisto ice cream parlour of delights.

To produce Sundae Thumper we pollinated an S1 selection of Gelauto #45 with a special Forum Stomper pollen donor.  During the beginning of this breeding project we also pollinated several other popular Cookie, Sherbert, and Gelato-derived clones to progeny test, but after running the F1 generation of these crosses it was very apparent that the Gelato #45 x Forum Stomper was by far the most unique and true to its clonal parent.  From several hundred F1 individuals we selected just 8 that carried the characteristic aromas most like Gelato #45 and intercrossed them to advance the project.  From the F2 generation, we germinated approximately 800 F2 seeds and selected 4 of our favourite donors and 8 of our favourite receivers. After screening the F3 populations we chose our 2 favorites to intercross for F4 seed production. We focused on capturing the classic aroma and flower morphology of Gelato #45 but wanted to make sure to include individuals that contained notes of the Forum Stomper’s mouth-coating grape undertones.

A New Limited Edition Drop, a free strain and early-adopter discount!

Along with Sundae Thumper, we’re also introducing a brand new lineup of Limited Editions, the second in our new drop format. A little explanation for those not in the know: Originally the Mephisto Genetics Limited Edition line was intended to be a genuine once-and-done Limited Edition offering, which back in the day could have been seeds just from one plant, however as our little company has grown and evolved over the years so did the line and the methodology behind it. As demand grew and we wanted to get these gems into more customers' hands, Limiteds became a further worked strain, taken to F3 with more seeds available. However, we’ve switched up our breeding processes for this new format whereby we’ll release our brand new Artisanal strain with carefully selected standout hybrids to accompany them.

On drop day expect a choice of 11 delectable and delightful Sundae Thumper true Limited Editions F1 hybrids, only available in feminised 5 seed packs at Here’s a preview of what you can expect:
