It's been a while, sorry for the lack of news for this selection! I'm back for some report
@BQ : very nice to see you almost back on the road!
So this run finish well, it was seeded a bit as I said before, some more than others and because of that, the taste and potency was maybe not at his top, but overall I'm satisfied with this experience, and keeped 4 plant finally, 3 females and one male, the 3 females are the #2, #4 and #10 for a second test run.
CBH #10 is the I think the most Indica oriented of the pack, smell and taste a little berry with I think a pich of cheese.
CBH #4 is a pheno with Blueberry Influence, it was unfortunately quite seeded, but It smell really like blueberries, taste was not so clear but very nice smell, finish with nice colors.
Cbh#2 has a nice trichome coating, finish with some grey mold, not much but I've to cut it a bit earlier. the taste is on the berry side with a hazy touch, nice potency.
That was my first impressions, I'm finishing a second run with those 3 females, and put also 10 seeds of Cheeseberry, wich gave me 3 females (2 didn't make it after poping, and have 5 male, bad luck), and I put also some cut (Sd riri, Amnesia core, Chem and Mt Hood my favorite one #5), I'll show you that just beside
First some shoots of the end of the Cheeseberry haze selection (ending late october 2013 if I remember well )the cut was at F+80+- )
Last family shot in the box
CBH #15, quite good yield, not so fluffy and nice taste, should have keep it also but not so much place in my Mother box^^
CBH#2, first on top the rest of the plant after I chopped the head with some grey mold before it goes further, below the chopped head, cut one week to early but almost ready. Nice bud structure, and nice taste.
The Mt Hood #7, it was a small cutting with not enough grow, that was here to fill the hole^^, but it finish not so badly. Rock hard bud with this nice rose/berry taste.
CBH#14, didn't keep it because of the male flowers she gave me in the early flowering, sad because of her nice bud structure, quite dense and berry tasty
CBH#10, nice yield, and a nice cheesy taste I think.
CBH#4, the most berry of the pack, also the most seeded^^
And the #13 that I forgot to shoot properly^^, maybe the most hazy taste.
After that run, I've make a cut only one to fill the jars^^ and after that one, another one this time with the 3 selected CBH and 3 Cheeseberry + some cuts and manage to do my first pollinisation with the CBH male I keeped.Like usual I didn't give enough N during the stretch, so it's a bit yellow, and sometime some leaves are already gone, but it's ok and better for the taste^^. Today it is at F+69, I'll begin to cut soon with the Mt hood, Chem, CBH #10 and maybe CBH #4 (maybe a bit early because of the senescence)folowwed by the Cheeberry and CBH#2, Sd and Am.
Here's some photos :
Overall shoot at F+59+-
The CBH#4, this time it is very colored, very nice tones, and smell crazy blueberries, like a blueberry pie, very nice, I'm curious to taste it again this time. at F+67
CBH#2, no male flowering and a nice coating, want to taste it again^^ F+67
CBH#10, I topped her not the good way it seems, so she didn't stretch well and then the yield is average, she gave some nanners in late flowering, but nothing serious. F+67
First Cheesberry, my favorite, very nice bud structure and coating, nice berry smell also! F+67
Second Cheeseberry, this one stretch a little bit, more, is a bit more on the sativa side, nice smell also, less popcorn on the bud F+67
Last Cheeseberry, quite different, not my favorite this one. F+67
The Cheeseberry Haze male was flowering in another small box in the early flowering of the females, and his pollen hit the CBH #2, the SD, Amnesia and Mt Hood #5 for a first attempt in seed making. I didn't make a proper selection on the CBH males, no complete flowering before the choice, so I choose one wich I like, with more sativa leaves, and a little purple touch (maybe due to lack of nutes or cold^^)
For the moment I think I was to shy on the quantity of pollen and I only see seeds on the CBH#2.
Here's some shoot of him just befor I harvested some pollen and trash him away^^. I've make the pollinisation on some lower buds only, with the pencil method.
The Mt Hood Huckleberry #5, my favorite, with the more rose flavors, really really tasty with dense nuggets!F+67
My first CBH F2
Sd riri on the left at F+50+-,and amnesia on the left at F+67
No more place for more photos on this post, just the chem who's not the most beautifull anyway
Very happy with the Cheeseberry, particulary the first one, and impatient to taste it, also happy with the CBH and to test it again. Thanks E$ko for your work!
I'll try to make some smoke reports after the chop, see you soon
A bit long but hope you'll enjoy it!
