The only real strain I know of that is even close to the true blueberry is peakseedbc's one.....
How did this turn out for you?
Mine was close to what you describe...It had a sweet, fruity blueberry nose as I described when growing...It disappeared after harvest and cure!
@HydroRed , Re: Blueberry ghost og - It's still a strain i run a few clones of, as it's a really nice smoke. Flowering was 8/9 weeks(soil) and the stretch was more than x2.5 , Excellent taste, smell and definitely blueberry in there.. though having not tried ghost og, this cross was/is good enough for me to keep to around (i only have two mother plants atm .).
I would recommend this strain to anyone, and though mine was a freebie i, I'll probably grab a pack next seed buy. Hope this helps .. happy growing
Thanks for the rapid reply. I was pretty happy to see someone who actually grew it and not the auto version. Not a lot of info out there on this one. I just didn't want to waste time on yet another "Blueberry" grow before knowing at least a little bit about it.
Sup with the blueberry ghost og ? How it turn out ?
His blueberry is absolutely the real deal blueberry
Hey ya'll! New to here, but not to growing. Has anybody here grown Original Berry from Victory? My main question about it is, I'm having trouble finding out more info about the seeds. I know its a 80/20 or so hybrid, but I haven't been able to find the parents. Mine are about 7 weeks in flower right now and one is showing signs of either light burn or a copper deficiency, but its in the exact same conditions as the other, and 4 other plants and they are all in perfect health, so I'm not sure.
Anyways, any reviews of this strain or extra info that isnt the same copy/paste stuff on all the seedbank sites is appreciated. Thank you.
Still have yet to run it. I kept reading about hermie prone blueberry strains and have been running multiple strains so I dont want to risk any cross pollination. Thats one I think I want to run on its own.
Cool man thanks for the update my brother..
I don't know why some people claim that DJ Short's current Blueberry isn't the real deal anymore, that somehow it got lost and/or that the strain he's now selling is weak or not up to the reputation of the original.
I have a friend in Portland who recently grew a batch who also grew the original about 16 years ago (as well as several times in between), and he says it is still the real deal, every bit as good as he remembers.
And he thinks that while there's lots of reasons why some people don't have a successful experience growing Blueberry (or any top shelf strain) isn't so much about the strain as it is the grower. Any number of missteps along the way and you end up with something slightly less than, and like a lot of rumors, a bad rep can get started simply due to sour grapes (i.e. if I can't have it, then I don't like it, and apply that to a growers results not meetin their expectations and that's enough).
Not to say that you can't end up with some bad seeds, but again that's not necessarily the fault of the breeder - could be the seller had too many in stock and you might end up with old beans, others run out during a run, and not wanting to lose a sale, they'll substitute something "close" like some other breeder's hybrid.
Also heard of some seed banks who can't get their hands on the real deal (sold out, unwilling to pay the price or whatever), in an effort to make some easy money will breed their own seeds using DJ's seeds or some hybrid (goes for other genetics I'm certain) but without his attention to details, and so end up selling an inferior product. And of course you could just get a bad batch, I'm sure there's genetic variations and mutations that every breeder has had to deal with.
But also, I think a lot of folks either don't remember, or never knew much about the strain and more importantly exactly who DJ Short is, which is nothing short of a God in the pantheon of cannabis breeders, imo. After all, it IS HIS STRAIN that was so damned good that everybody and their brother wanted to incorporate those genetics in theirs.
The man is a legend, knows as much or more than almost anyone alive about breeding cannabis, and those who've had the pleasure of meeting him will tell you, he's on a whole nother level where cannabis breeding is concerned.
So if he's selling something called Blueberry, you can most likely bet he not only knows what he's talking about, but even if the strain had gotten lost, who else would absolutely know how to go about capturing and recreating something as good or better?
Not too long ago I grew a batch of his Shortbread (Lambsbread Sour Diesel x DJ Short Blueberry) seeds and I was absolutely impressed with the results, most of the females had a nice blue/purple tinge, two different phenotypes, but the majority had those leaves with beautiful pointed blueberry looking shape, scent profile had that distinctive berry, earthy undertone, produced well and taste so nice and mellow, no harshness and also did not knock you back or put you in a coma, lol, which isn't what I was looking for when I chose them.
Right now I've got 36 beautiful Shortbread plants just starting veg, they're seeds I produced crossing the best male with the best female from that earlier batch. These seeds were sitting in a glass jar in the fridge for a little over a year, and assuming I'd be lucky to get a 60% survival rate, I threw 42 onto paper towels to germinate and was blown away to find every one popped. To me that says something about the quality of DJ's genetics, very strong and vigorous
Along with these (counting on about 50% females or 18 ) I've got 19 feminized seeds from Sensible Seeds that popped (100% germ rate), if it weren't for my ending up with an embarrassment of riches, lol, I was seriously thinking about buying a pack of DJ's Blueberry from SHN. But that'll have to wait for a while, but I'm really looking forward to growing them as well as doing some crosses.
No doubt DJ is a legend and deserves respect. However he DOES NOT have or breed true blueberry anymore he lost the signature male that gave the blueberry taste/aroma its GONE.
SO if you are looking for true blueberry aroma/taste, DJ doesn't have it. I just emailed peakseeds and he said for the past several years he has been exclusively refining his blueberry (and he is quite pleased)- but he got his genetics from DJ in 2002 AFTER he lost the signature male. So peak doesn't have the original blueberry in his line either.
For $40 i'm giving peaks BB a try.
All I ever wanted was that overwhelming blueberry smell that fills the room the moment you crack the jar, and taste that hits your palate hard and lingers leaving you salivating for more all paired with a perfect mellow high. That blueberry seems longgone but i'm determined to find it again.
Researching where DJ got his thai genetics for bb.
The JordanoftheIslands blueberry crosses turned out very fruity & dank. I got a Blue Afghani that smells exactly like fresh crushed up blueberries. 2/3 seeds of it that I did are keepers. There's definitely something to be found in a full pack.
JOTI also has a Blueberry & a Pure Blueberry (muffin).
I didn't read your full comment, why too long, but you're off base big time.
The blueberry DJ has and others have is not the same as the lineage I bought and ran in 2002 and my growing skills have been shown off here for years. The special blueberry plants were the crinkle leaf mutants and you don't see those mutants anymore in any breeder's gear.
If your buddy never grew a slow growing purple stemmed crinkle leaf blueberry circa 2002 or older then he don't know shit about that Smucker's grape jelly taste of buds that looked more like GSC or GG4 than the bull shit blueberry I keep running from breeders today.
Sure you can find blueberry just like the blueberry back pre2000 but it is not the crinkle mutant special girl. I had three females in that old pack, 1 crinkle mutant grape jelly and 2 green stem perfectly healthy fast growing plants with good berry flavor and potency but nothing like the mutant. Not as potent, not as flavorful and no pretty colors. Yes you can still find those plants that many would be satisfied calling blueberry, but not me, I've had better.
I've had a couple crinkle leaf Phenos from Peak. I also pollinated my last BB girl with a Kush x Northern Lights and about a 1/4 start off crinkly. Some outright mutants. Wanted to keep her genes around.
i used to have the original DJ blueberry years ago. it was a cutting that had been passed around a circle of friends for well over a decade. So sad that it's been gone for so many years
I had a nice variegated crinkle leaf northern lights girl. Weird looking plant that I thought had a deficiency but nope.
Do you get lots of variation with your crosses of peaks gear? I like how you make interesting choices!
I think mike’s blueberry has been bred back to the indica side. Wonder if the high is as nice as DJ’s? I ran a 10 pack back around 2000 and it was sweet. What an incredible high and taste. Wish I had the knowledge to know what I had and how to grow it. Oh and colour and smell too. It had it all!!
Dark Heart Nursey carries a cut called “blueberry muffin” it’s supposedly exactly like you described. Check them out on IG
I plan on running Mike's blueberry and if there are mutants I'm game. The one I had took 2 months from seedling just to be about 12 inches tall, if that, and didn't stretch much during flower.
