Blueberry is an 80% indica and 20% sativa hybrid that has a lineage that goes back as far as the 1970’s. Back then growers were experimenting by crossing Thai landraces with Colombian and Mexican landraces, one of the outcomes was Juicy Fruit. The hybrid strain Juicy Fruit was subsequently crossed with an Afghani landrace by DJ Short creating the first ever Blueberry around 1979.
The buds and leaves of the new strain had a blue hue to them and it smelled of berries and fruit. DJ Short therefore aptly named her Blueberry. Even though the newly created strain consisted of at least 80% Afghani indica, it still had the original sativa effects of its ancestors.
It wasn’t until the 1990’s that DJ Short decided to bring the genetics of his Blueberry to Europe by teaming up with Dutch Passion. A number of new hybrids were created, giving birth to Blue Satellite, Blue Moonshine and Blue Velvet. The Blueberry strain hasn’t gone out of style since and has remained a staple with many coffee shops and growers ever since.
