Ah, if only all breeders knew as much about their strains as DJ Short, the producer of Blueberry, does. The pedigree details of this Cannabis Cup 2000 winner are as follows: Three strains–Highland Thai, Purple Thai, and Afghani Indica–were used to create Blueberry (and others in DJ Short’s collection).
The Highland Thai (also called Juicy Fruit Thai) was a huge, slightly hermaphroditic, slow-finishing Thai sativa plant. The Purple Thai was a first-generation cross between a Highland Oaxaca Gold (Mexican) and a Chocolate Thai. The Afghani Indica was just that–an Afghani indica. The Blueberry was discovered and stabilized from a cross between parents of a female Juicy Fruit Thai or female Purple Thai and a male Afghani Indica. I hold a special place in my heart for the real Blueberry. The flowers are so fragrant, so…blue smelling. The succulent blueberry flavor stays on your tongue for hours.
