Q&A with Jorge
I’ve been hearing about a strain called Blueberry. What is it, and what are the prices usually like?
The Cannabis Cup–winning (2000 Indica) Blueberry is 80% indica and 20% sativa. The high is outstanding and long-lasting. There’s enough sativa to keep you moving, but very slowly! Blueberry is a product of DJ Short’s original Delta 9 Collection, which dates back to the late 1970s.
Blueberry tastes best when grown organically to retain its natural flavors. The plant is a finicky feeder and grows best in a consistent climate.
It usually becomes ripe at the end of eight weeks of a 12/12 day/night photoperiod. Outdoors, indica is usually harvested in the second or third week of October. The taste and aroma are fruity, reminiscent of blueberries, and the finished bud can turn a bluish lavender hue when dry. The yield can be quite good when properly grown.
You can find out everything you need to know about Blueberry in the book Cultivating Exceptional Cannabis: An Expert Breeder Shares His Secrets by DJ Short (Quick American Archives, $16.95). You can also find seeds at Dutch Passion, dutch-passion.nl.
