Blueberry has won numerous awards during the last two decades. These were the first two Cannabis Cups, 2 years after its introduction:
- 1st Prize HighTimes Cannabis Cup 2000
- 3rd Prize High Times Cannabis Cup 2001
Blueberry is an Indica dominant strain with one of the fruitiest flavor profiles you will ever have the pleasure to enjoy. The sweet aroma and delicious flavour of fresh blueberries ensure that this is unmistakably one of the finest and tastiest cannabis experiences. It’s like eating candy, very addictive and joyful! No wonder this legendary strain was used as the genetic foundation for so many of todays most popular modern cannabis varieties.
Blueberry buds can be compact and very resinous. THC levels of around 20% are not unusual. It is a vigorous plant with large fan leaves. Blueberry can yield very well when grown in optimum conditions. She has a favourable calyx-to-leaf ratio which makes her easy to trim.
Original Blueberry is the flagship strain of the Blue Family. The Blueberry name was chosen because of the blue hues in the flowers and leaves, combined with an incredible aroma which is amazingly close to the smell and taste of real blueberries.
Blueberry was introduced to the Dutch market in 1998 together with Blue Velvet, Blue Moonshine, Flo and Blue Heaven - the other members of the Blue Family. All of them were originally bred by DJ Short and adopted by Dutch Passion in a cooperation with the Canadian breeder.
Although the variety is mostly Indica dominant, just the right amount of Sativa genes gives the high a unique effect. Instead of being devastating, as you might expect with such an Indica dominant strain, the high is clear and euphoric. It provides the user with a long-lasting high which is known to be very pleasant and up-lifting.
Blueberry is a heavily resinous mostly Indica strain (about 80% Indica, 20% Sativa) mainly consisting of an Afghani Indica. The Sativa genetics come from a Thai Sativa and to a minor degree also from an Oaxacan (Mexican) Sativa. This unique three-way cross is the genetic foundation for the Blueberry strain and her many offspring.
Most plants have a compact growth pattern with sturdy stems and very large, broad fan leaves. The internodes can be quite close together and stems can turn purple. Blueberry can also produce some beautiful colours in the leaves and flowers.
Original Blueberry achieved a legendary status along with an immense number of followers. During more recent years Blueberry has been used to make countless new and popular crosses e.g. Blue Dream, Mazar x Blueberry (formerly Skywalker), Mazar x Blueberry OG (formerly Skywalker OG), Blueberry Headband, Blueberry Diesel and Blue Cookies just to name a few.
Blueberry is ready to harvest after around 8-9 weeks indoors. Outdoor she can reach maximum heights of 2.5-3m and is harvested around the start/middle of Autumn.
The genetics used to create Blueberry ensure the following characteristics:
- A strong and sturdy plant which can yield very well both indoors and outdoors if grown in optimum conditions
- Short internodal distances with dense flower clusters and a good calyx-to-leaf ratio
- An amazing smoke/vape experience, one of the fruitiest strains on the planet
Blueberry may not be the easiest variety for beginners but she will reward the experienced grower with a bountiful harvest of one of the very best original cannabis varieties. She can be grown both indoors and outdoors.
Anyone that enjoys the rich taste and great visual appeal of Purple Kush weed will love growing Blueberry seeds. Both varieties offer blue and purple hues to the buds along with a THC rich, indulgent smoke quality. Old school connoisseurs might argue that Blueberry has earned its place in the cannabis hall of fame thanks to the extravagantly delicious taste, aroma and potency.
Blueberry is a very special Indica, despite being about 80% Indica dominant, the high is not too stoney or sleepy. It has a strong effect and the right amount of Sativa genes to make the high clear and euphoric. Our original Blueberry has a perfectly balanced high which makes it useful for morning and day-time use. It will not knock you out although it will definitely medicate you sufficiently. It will give users a hugely enjoyable feel-good body effect and put big smiles on their faces. With THC levels reaching 20% this is definitely a powerful variety.
We typically recommend a vegetative period of about 4-6 weeks. When you have only a few plants per m2 then we recommended using about 6 weeks of veg. With more plants per m2 you can use 4 weeks of veg. Although it is mostly Indica dominant, Blueberry can still stretch during flowering. This is due to the presence of Sativa genetics used in the breeding of Blueberry.
Outdoors, Blueberry has the potential to reach a significant size in optimum conditions. Ideally the weather should be mild/temperate with plenty of sun and some wind to reduce the possibility of the buds being damaged by mould and fungus. When grown in favourable conditions she has the potential to yield heavily. Some growers have succeeded in harvests over 2kg per plant.
Blueberry can have large fan leaves which act as enormous solar panels, converting light into energy. Strong stems and shorter internodal spacing makes her a great candidate for SOG-type growing styles.
The flowering time is about 8-9 weeks. In combination with the recommended veg phase it takes around 12-15 weeks from seed to harvest.
Blueberry produces above average harvests of the finest quality cannabis; between 350 and 450 grams per m2 is possible. The compact plants will carry dense and heavy flowers.
Blueberry isn’t the easiest variety for newer growers and can be a fussy feeder. But she will repay the more experienced growers with a beautiful harvest of perhaps one of the best cannabis varieties available. We recommend that growers ensure their grow-room conditions are as good as possible. Blueberry thrives in a stable growing environment. The climate, nutrients, soil and lighting need to be optimised for her to feel at home and deliver her full potential.
A cold climate will encourage the production of purple and blue hues. If you are growing her indoors, try to let some cold air flow into the grow-room at the end of flowering for an extravagant visual effect.
Handle her well and you will be rewarded with one of the best tasting cannabis varieties ever created!
Blueberry is a legendary, premium potency Indica with a favourable calyx-to-leaf ratio which makes her easy to trim. She can have a striking resemblance to the White Widow strain when it comes to the sheer amount of white crystals which cover the bud. The purple/blue hues make this strain even better eye-candy.
Growers simply adore her amazing bag appeal. This is surely A++ quality flower. When she is slow-dried and cured properly there are not many strains that are able to beat this luxurious level of genuine connoisseur quality.
Blueberry is one of those exclusive varieties which will put a smile on any growers face each time they check their plants. That special Blueberry aroma makes it all worth it. Most growers cannot wait until harvest to vape/smoke and taste the buds!
Blueberry is available in both regular and feminized seeds, as well as autoflower seeds.
