Blueberry Auto offers the delights of Blueberry in an easy-to-grow auto-flowering version. To create Auto Blueberry a top Blueberry female was fertilised with pollen from a Canadian Ruderalis, back-crossed for 4 generations and then self-pollinated to give a stable, 100% auto strain.
Auto Blueberry are now F5 seeds which will grow in any environment and growing media. It is a perfect choice for an early harvest at high latitudes and also in warm climate regions such as the Mediterranean where careful timing will result in as many as 3 harvests outdoors in one season. It is also a good performer indoors where it makes a good alternative to growing clones (cuttings) for a consistent garden. It is an indica-dominant strain that has a total life-cycle of 8 - 10 weeks from germination. Yields are only average but the quality is very good and will not disappoint lovers of the original Blueberry strain.
Most of these plants will exhibit the lovely blue and purple shades for which Blueberry stains are famous. The aroma and flavour is very sweet and fruity, reminiscent of blueberries. The high is a slightly milder version of the euphoria and relaxation provided by the original.

About Dutch Passion
"You don't buy that many seeds a year, it's one area of your life where compromise isn't necessary so choose a seed bank with a long tradition and proven record" - Dutch Passion
In the 1970’s, Dutch Passion’s founder, Henk van Dalen, began collecting and breeding with cannabis seeds which he found in the early Dutch cannabis imports arriving from all over the world. He realised that it was possible to grow your own cannabis and often it was far superior to the often poor-quality, heavily seeded, imported product.
Some of his best varieties were selectively crossed and bred and he soom realised that many people would prefer to grow their own cannabis from seed rather than buy it on the streets.
In 1987, the Dutch Passion Seed Company was formally established. 10 years later, they became the first seed bank to learn how to make feminized seeds, something that many people at the time said was impossible with cannabis. Ever since then, Dutch Passion have been busy trying to create the best cannabis seeds and trying to keep up with customer interest in other varieties of seeds such as autoflowering and CBD-rich etc.
Dutch Passion grow from their own gene bank of original genetics collected decades ago, These days, many newer seed banks simply regurgitate existing varieties/genetics and put a new name on them. Dutch Passion are both proud and fortunate to have their own legendary varieties from the 1980’s and plenty of old original seeds to use for future projects.
Crowned Best Seed bank at Spannabis 2014, Dutch Passion are well known for their sophistication and quality. The Dutch Passion breeders concern themselves with creating and preserving quality, and their varieties have won many prizes in cannabis cup competitions.
