Probably the cannaisseur's most beloved fruit bud image of Blueberry

Genetic background and history

The Original Blueberry is the flagship strain of the Blue Family, having gained great popularity amongst worldwide growers. Its name was chosen because of Blueberry's blue hues and its incredible blueberry aro

ma which is amazingly close to the taste and smell of real blueberries. The Original Blueberry was introduced to the Dutch market in 1998, together with Blue Velvet, Blue Moonshine, Blue Heaven and Flo, the other

members of the Blue Family. All of them were originally bred by DJ Short and adopted by Dutch Passion, made possible by a cooperation with the Canadian breeder. Blueberry is a heavily resinous mostly indica strain (80%), mainly consisting of an Afghani indica, the sativa genetics predominantly come from a Thai sativa and, to a minor degree, also from an Oaxacan (Mexican) sativa. These three truebred parental lines, old landraces that date back to the 70ies, represent the genetic framework for every member of the Blue Family. The Original Blueberry's participations in the High Times Cannabis Cup have been crowned with great success: In the year of 2000, it impressively dominated the competition, winning both

the overall Cannabis Cup and the indica category. In the following year, Blueberry took second place in the overall Cup and third place in the indica category. With a THC content of 19.5%, measured by an independent laboratory, Blueberry belongs to the group of strains that have to be considered very strong. But nevertheless its high is expected to be clear and euphoric rather than devastating.

Cultivation test

Last year, a grower called Berryman gave me the opportunity to experience a garden of Blueberry cuttings, taken from a BB mother plant that had been grown from original Dutch Passion seed of 2004. They were grown on rockwool under 600 Watts of HPS light, together with Power Plant clones, and left in the vegetative state for seven days. Receiving an EC of max. 1.8 and a pH value of around six, the plants grew very well. They had a very stout growth pattern, the internodes were very close to one another. The stem turned purple in the course of cultivation, but not the shade leafs, due to the rather warm grow room temperature (24-28°C). A cold climate encourages the production of purple and blue hues so that the discolouration of Blueberry is much stronger products than products. However, at the end of flowering at least slightly blue-red hues emerged in the flower clusters and also flower leafs. The plants had grown to a height of 45 to 55 cm when it was time to harvest, and were loaded with lots of big rock-hard buds from the bottom to the top, each plant yielding between 30 and 40 grams. The buds had a very good calyx-to-leaf ratio, only a few short flower leafs had to be trimmed off, and where abundantly covered with multi-layers of long trichomes. The vast amount of resin reminded of White Widow dimensions, these Blueberry plants in fact looked like a white strain. And the smell should top this excellent perfomance, being extremely fragrant and fruity. Yes, this was the authentic berry taste that only the Original Blueberry can offer. I was amazed by the distinctiveness of this taste, considering the fact that the buds had been grown hydroponically. Berryman's Blueberry buds even gave me the strongest blueberry taste experience I ever had. And the high really kept the promise of a clear euphoric turn, very long-lasting and pleasant. The Original Blueberry - for sure one of the most rewarding cannabis strains on the market.
