This original Blueberry strain is an Indica dominant plant which was first created in the 70s. It is famous for its enormous yields and great scent but primarily its amazing fruity flavour. Visually this plant is seriously impressive with its purple, red and blue hue which changes as it matures, after curing it takes on a lavender colour. It has a happy and uplifting effect which means that it is often enjoyed as a day time painkiller. Blueberry is often used by those who are suffering from pain, stress or anxiety.
It is not only a delight but an award winner; it took the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2000 for the best Indica strain. Blueberry is already extremely impressive and has only been improved on. These particular seeds are feminised, meaning that they don’t grow into male plants. The feminised strain has won an award all on its own and took 3rd Prize at the 2001 Indica Cup.
Feminised strains are still increasing in popularity due to their quality, their easy to grow nature and their consistency. They were originally perfected by the Dutch Passion seed company and are now preferred by most growers. This is partly due to the fact that male plants can cause a number of issues for the females during the growing period. This means that they must be moved which is simply another unnecessary step for growers. It is possible for breeders to use feminised seeds to create a future generation of plants without and males at all. Female plants can be bred together using feminised pollen, this is quite a difficult process and should only be taken on by more experienced breeders.
Blueberry needs around 8 – 10 weeks to flower.
