Mokum’s Tulip has a sweet, fruity and creamy character, honouring the Gelato genetics
Mokum’s Tulip is a typical Gelato hybrid. Her aroma is pungent and best described as very sweet, creamy and fruity. This aroma and flavor explosion comes from a unique terpene profile that really makes the buds smell and taste like ice cream. Either forest fruit ice cream or more of a grapefruit / orange-like ice cream flavour. There is something for everyone. Those who like a true Gelato variety will certainly enjoy our Mokum’s Tulip. This strain smokes and tastes exactly as it smells, very tasty!
Mokum’s Tulip is a robust grower and fast bloomer
Mokum’s Tulip grows fast and flowers quickly. In general, the plants develop sturdy and thick trunks/branches, which makes her extremely suitable for a SOG setup or for growing in the natural way. The compact and heavy buds are well supported by these thick branches. In the right conditions, phenotypes can be found that are ready in a maximum of 7-8 weeks. But in general we recommend a flowering time of between 56-63 days.
What kind of genetics are there in Mokum’s Tulip?
The Head of Genetics for Dutch Passion came across a very special Gelato phenotype on one of his travels. The plant had a special sweet scent and beautiful blue tones in the leaves. The glittering buds were rock hard, and the Head of Genetics was surprised by the rich flavor that matched the sweet, appealing aroma of the flowering plant. He immediately knew that these genetics would form a good basis for yet another exceptional Dutch Passion cross.
When this Gelato pheno arrived in Mokum (an old name for Amsterdam), it was crossed with a powerful Sherbet cutting, which leaned towards the sweet side of the Cookie family. The Sherbet has a rich terpene profile, generous yields and a very powerful high.
Mokum’s Tulip has very compact and sticky buds with a good flower-leaf ratio
Mokum’s Tulip is a world-class feminised hybrid. The strong growth pattern combines with her sturdy and robust plant structure to ensure that the thick buds can develop quickly and well. It does this just inside 8 weeks! Most plants show a hybrid character in terms of plant/bloom structure that will lean slightly towards the Indica side. She is compact, with wide leaves, thick branches and round flowers.
We recommend that you do not defoliate her too much and certainly not crack and/or bend her. The strong branches can make it more difficult to use certain growing techniques such as LST (Low Stress Training) or HST (High Stress Training). We generally strongly advise against ‘Supercropping’, only the most experienced growers would dare to try this. Due to her strong stature she is easy to grow and it is not necessary for beginners to master advanced grow techniques before cultivating this strain.
During the flowering phase, the plants show an average stretch for a hybrid. Her internode distance is short to medium. Flowering hairs (pistils) develop quickly after turning the clock to 12/12 bloom lighting conditions. Her buds will usually be nice, round and very compact. The slightly larger and longer flowering plants show buds with slightly more Sativa characteristics and a very favourable flower-leaf ratio. In general, all phenotypes can be cut easily and quickly. Make sure to use gloves when cutting because all buds are packed with resin and are really sticky!
The genetics used for Mokum’s Tulip guarantee the following properties:
- A medium sized plant with sturdy stems and compact buds.
- A wonderfully fruity and sweet Gelato aroma and taste.
- Beautiful buds with a very high THC content and a rich terpene profile.
Mokum’s Tulip is the perfect connoisseur strain. She actually smells and tastes like ice cream!
Effects of Mokum’s Tulip

The body stone/effect is strong, this is a relaxing strain to round off a busy day. The head-high is powerful and euphoric.

The flowering time of Mokum’s Tulip
Mokum’s Tulip is a fast bloomer, with an average flowering time of about 8 weeks. This can differ from one phenotype to another. There are phenotypes that are 1 week faster and others which require 1 week longer. View the trichomes with a microscope at the end of bloom to make sure they are fully ripe and have the correct ratio of milky, cloudy & amber trichomes.
The strain will grow for about 2.5 weeks during the flowering phase with the most stretching in the first and second week of 12/12. The flower hairs start to appear from the 2nd week of flowering. After around 4 weeks the plants are full of round white buds, from this point onwards the plants mainly focus on the development of these buds.
The yield from Mokum’s Tulip
Mokum’s Tulip produces a high yield in combination with a very short flowering time. Due to its compactness it is possible to achieve large yields, though the buds may be slightly smaller than the largest yielding plants in our collection. However, in the right hands and the right grow environment, she can ensure an XL yield of the highest quality!
On average, yields of between 400-500g/m2 are possible. She does well in a SOG setup with many plants per m2 in slightly smaller pots (12L), but also with fewer plants per m2 in large pots (25-30L) and a longer growth phase.
Outdoors she grows into a sturdy, bushy plant that can support quite a bit of weight. The most important tip we can give for outdoor cultivation is to watch out for very high humidity due to the compactness of the buds. She does best in drier and warm climates where you will be able to smell the pungent aroma from a distance.
Advice from our experts
Mokum’s Tulip is a plant that has quickly become very popular in the grower community for its pungent aroma and excellent taste that the buds produce. If you want to maximise the quality of your results then we recommend using the ‘Blue Light Treatment’ during the end of the flowering phase for an even higher production of terpenes.
Another option is to leave the plants in the dark for a maximum of 2-3 days at the end of the flowering phase to give them a little more stress. This will make them even more resinous and tacky! Do not forget to water them. Even though the light is turned off, they still consume water every day.
