The Blueberry strain is one of the most striking strains that has emerged in recent years. It blends two very interesting characteristics appreciated by all growers: an unforgettable taste of red fruits and blueberries and a blue coloration that arrives when the plant suffers from low night temperatures in its last weeks of flowering. But how has emerged this so appreciated strain?
As like many other of the most mythical marijuana strains, Blueberry was originated in the United States in the late 1980s. From that moment started a leyend that painted hundreds of new crosses of its blue color. The breeder responsible for this real wonder was called DJ Short and between the late 80's and 90's created and developed this mythical genetic. To obtain this strain, Dj Short was breeding genetics as different as a pure Sativa called Highland Thai (also known as Juicy Fruit Thai), a Purple Thai (crossing Highland Oaxaca Gold with Chocolate Thai) and an Afghan genetics that has developed in California and Oregon.
From this breeding work Dj Short was able to create and stabilize the different genetic lines that are included in the Blue strain until, already entered the 90's, he shared his creation with the Dutch Passion guys. For this reason, now we can enjoy new different strains coming from to this original Blueberry strain. Nowadays we can also find Blue strain genetics in almost all seedbanks.
In the Blueberry strain, we have to highlight above all the aromas and flavors it presents and its incredible coloring. When you grow Blueberry yit is possible to find the aromas of blueberries, red fruits and other very ripe fruits, with a strong sweet taste underliying.
On the other hand its intense blue coloration, which becomes more intense when the night temperature drops at the end of flowering. Another characteristic shared by the members of this strain is the high power and balanced effect, on the one hand energizing (fruit of the Thai genetics) but balanced with a relaxing part (by the Afghan genetics crosses).
When we talk about strains with the genetics Blueberry we can not fail to highlight the original Blueberry by Dutch Passion. This is one of the original genetics offered by Dj Short to the bank to develop what is the most famous strain and that gives name to the strain.
If we talk about strains made in recent years from crosses with the original Blueberry, we must highlight the Blueberry Headband from Humboldt Seeds. One of the sales champions, with an incredible yield and high power is a strain that leaves no one indifferent.
Finally we have to talk about one of the strains with one of the most incredible flavors ever created. This is nothing more than Barney's Farm's Blue Cheese, which brings together in a single strain the best of both worlds, the sweetness of Blue with the spicy and aged flavour characteristic of Cheese. A real madness for the senses.
