    Chimera's Comprehensive Strainlist

    Having grown out several of Chimera's genetics with positive experiences, I have decided to try and document a brief summary of the man's strains. This is a work in progress (obviously) and any input is appreciated and will be updated periodically. Most of the information is from either my own memory of old Overgrow and C-world posts, and my notes on the subject.

    Strains and crosses
    C4 (Cotton Candy x Shishkeberry Red) 45-55 days
    Frostbite (Cotton Candy x Northern Lights) 55-60 days
    Malibu (Californian x the Dom) 55-60 days
    Schnazzleberry (the Dom x Shishkeberry Red) 45-55 days
    Aurora (the Dom x Northern Lights) 55-60 days
    Calizahr (California Orange x Shishkeberry Red) 56 days
    SSS1 (Sweet Skunk x Sweet Skunk selfed)
    Sweetest Sativa (Sweet Skunk x DJ Short Blueberry) 63 days
    Grapefruit x DJ Short Blueberry
    Grapefruit x Shishkeberry Red 50-60 days
    Grapefruit x Northern Lights 50-55 days
    California Orange x Northern Lights
    Super Skunk x Shishkeberry Red
    Mental Floss #1 (??? x DJ Short Blueberry) 55-65 days
    Mental Floss #2 (??? x DJ Short Flo) ??? days
    C-Plus (California Orange x DJ Short Blueberry) 50-60 days
    Schnazzleberry#2 (the Dom x DJ Short Blueberry) 50-60 days
    Mountain Jam (Soulshine x DJ Short Blueberry) 55-65 days
    Sassyfrass (Superior Afghani Skunk x DJ Short Blueberry) 50-55 days
    Red-eyed Bride (bx1m1 x ???)
    Fighting Buddah (Burmese Sativa x DJ Short Blueberry) 55-65 days
    Highland Mexican x DJ Short Blueberry
    Vision Thai x DJ Short Blueberry


    Breeding Stock
    Grapefruit - Grapefruit also known as Sweet Pink Grapefruit was introduced to the world by Breeder Steve when he started growing clones he found in Vancouver, BC. He got a tray of clones from an unknown breeder labeled “the only plant to grow” and used it in his breeding projects thereafter. She does excel in flavour and bag appeal, leaves some to be desired in terms of stature... but the yield is good if you get her dialed. She does have some of what I deem negative traits.... her floppy stature and tendency to pre-flower heavily when root bound being up front. Luckily, these often don't appear in hybrid crosses and are easily removed in downline selections given proper selection pressures are applied. - Chimera

    Blue Domino - (Craig's Skunk x DJ Short Blueberry) Blue Domino by Spice of Life Seeds, line bred by Chimera before breeding with it. "Just to clear the air a little, the Dom was originally a Blue Domino F1.... these select female Dom used for the Schazz crosses were from a greatly improved and stabilized F3 line. Although the originals were purchased from SOL, the quality of the mothers was due to down line selections. -Chimera
    Shishkeberry Red - A line bred Afghani from Spice of Life Seeds, heavily selected that yielded two distinct varieties, the Red and the Yellow.
    DJ Short Blueberry - This Blueberry is derived from original Blueberry, an unreleased line that also fathered DJ Short True Blueberry. Chimera was given access to the room in which DJ Short's male selections were made. He chose several individuals personally, as well as the now deceased B130 male that DJ selected himself, and these selections are the pollen donors for the Joint Projects.
    "There is variation in every pack. You WILL find the one that you are looking for in each pack as everyone has differing tastes, the one will be different for everyone. I love the mutant factor! Some of the best resin has come off of the mutants in these current releases. As far as using these strains in breeding projects-GO FOR IT. Every cross that I have seen turns out spectacular. In these new hybrids the blueberry gene is very dominant. A classic example is Chimera's Fighting Buddha. This Burmese cross has heavy Blue line traits(foxtailing, purple stem...)." - Red from Legends Seeds
    The pollen inputs from DJ were selected by me from a set of plants DJ chose from the selection run that pre-dated the TBB, F13, GK, etc releases. These inputs came as cuttings, not pollen.
    The male known as B130 was but one of the plants who contributed pollen for the Chimera/DJ Short joint projects.
    I did make an S1 generation from B130. None of the plant from this generation have been used for any seed release.
    I hope that clarifies,
    -Chimera

    There were more B130 plants in the room than any other pollen donor. If I had to estimate I'd say that %70 of the seeds fom this batch were from B130 pollen. Other pollen donors included the B133 mother of Old Time Moonshine, B25 (the mother of grape krush) and B144(?) (the mother of TBB). I'd have to dig up my notes to see which other plants contributed pollen.

    -Chimera

    __________
    Super Skunk -
    Superior Afghani Skunk - A low odor commercial strain. "The Sassy Frass is a hybrid oF DJ Short's blueberry and a clone I selected many years ago from an experimental cross of two well loved lines. We called her SAS; Superior Afghani Skunk (not to be confused with super skunk). This plant produced ample frosty lime green nuggets; in fact she's the clone I would share with my commercially minded friends who were concernned about the intense smell of the other clones I typically grew for sinse; wimps! This one became their commercial staple, since they didn't have to double up on the charcoal filters." -Chimera
    Highland Mexican - The mexican used was indeed a stellar highland guerreran specimen selected from a true mexican circa '73 (if memory serves) landrace population -Chimera
    It's technically not an F1, as both parents weren't from stabilized lines.
    The blueberry pollen was from the F4 generation (orignal stock unique to DJ Short) and the female side was a select landrace Guererran circa '72 stock.
    Landraces are heterogeneous populations of heterozygotes, making the female likely heterozyous for various traits.
    As such, you'll find a small degree of variation within the line.
    -Chimera

    Burmese Sativa - "The burmese is a really special sativa lady that was selected from true land of origin stock a friend of mine picked up in his travels to the region years back. I'm puffing a bongload right now, and it's great pot imho! She's very fast for a sat, and finishes in approximately 55 days in most gardens." -Chimera
    Northern Lights - Chimera line bred Sensi Northern Lights to get his NL selection.
    Soulshine - Cannabis Cowboy among others was given this clone which he named Soulshine, it was also known as the LC cross.
    Genetics unknown. The Cannabis Cowboy named it Soulshine, previous it was known as "the LC cross" from those who discovered her and past it to the cannabis cowboy, among others.

    She's an indica-sativa hybrid, leaning mostly towards the indica profile in stature and flowering time. Mid-density nuggets, very similar to grapefruit (the BC sweet pink grapefruit) in scent, flavour and effect. More purpling in the flowers than graprefruit, showing purple striping on the calyxes.

    A friend sprouted the last of the seeds from the population of which the soulshine was chosen last growing season, and no outstanding keepers or similar plants were found.

    She performs best in a greenhouse situation with the photoperiod induced with a blackout tarping system, but is also suitable for indoor cultivation. Not suitable for northern climates but the jam has performed well in Oregon, California and latitutes closer to the equator.

    Definitely a good hash producer with the 90u, 73u and 45 being the most sought after grades... make sure to run your trim.

    Hope that helps,
    -Chimera

    "The soulshine also has some major colouration in the later flowering stages although more on the red/purple spectrum rather than the blue/purple of the BB. The Calyxes on the soulshine leaning variation should have a candy cane stripe once they are fully mature. I recommend cleaning all the small inside buds out early on for some truly trophy sized tips and tops" - Cannabis Cowboy on phenotypic variation in Mountain Jam
    California Orange - This is the legendary Aeric77 Calio, supposedly maintained in clone form for 25+ years.
    Cotton Candy - Federation Seeds. Reputedly composed of Afghani, Blueberry and possibly Haze genetics.
    Sweet Skunk - A Vancouver clone selected as superior by Breeder Steve from a large population. "A very small batch of these were made last winter and have barely seen the light of gardens except a small group of SS lovers. The Sweet skunk clone is in my opininion the finest and most unique sativa of the last decade, and the unbeatable #1 favorite in our group of cannabis cowboys." -Cannabis Cowboy
    "Sweetest Skunk...produces excellent herb very much like the SS clone." -Chimera
    Sweet Skunk was originally introduced by Spice of Life Seeds in 1994. The heritage was listed as Sensi Seed’s Big Skunk x Sweet Pink Grapefruit (a.k.a. Grapefruit) at the time, but Breeder Steve later speculated that the father was likely a NL x Haze male rather than a Big Skunk. This makes sense; the Southeast Asian “Hazey” bud structure is hard to ignore. Apparently, Steve had obtained two trays of clones for a grow, one labeled “Big Skunk” and the other “NL x Haze.” Upon planting and flowering the clones, one of the trays turned out to have a male that pollinated the crop, producing the seeds sold as Sweet Skunk. (Sometimes unplanned hybridization can yield outstanding individuals.) F1 seeds were planted, and an extreme sativa-leaning selection (SS #10) was chosen out of a roomful of indica-dominant girls. This clone is now known in BC as the original Sweet Skunk clone.
    Red-eyed bride - Chimera makes no claim to the Red Eyed Bride, other than to suggest an open pollination as opposed to the 1 to 1 cross that was going to be used to perpetuate the strain. It is a cross that was made by Cannabis Cowboy that he brought to their brief partnership. "It all goes back to a very special time in my budding hobby when i was in Switzerland working for Breeder Steve in his magnificent warehouse full of genetics from around the world. Of the thousands of plants i was blessed to witness there were two specimens that stood out to me more than any others, the bx1m1 and the bx2m4, both grapefruit crosses that steve was evaluating for future seed projects. Because the warehouse was a breeding facility there was pollen flying around and both were hit by a mystery dad that steve had in his collection, and trust me, the dads were all guys you'd be happy to marry your first born to. Both plants were lightly seeded and Steve knew how much i would value the children inside these magic beans.
    Fast forward a few months and i decide to take the plunge into wedded bliss with my soulmate of 10 yrs smack in the middle of the summer of 2001. Of course up to his eyeballs in buds and beans at the time Steve was unable to make it to our side of the world for the wedding, but sent along the best wedding present a spice loving bean fiend could imagine, all of the bx1m1 and bx2m4 seed that was produced by the mystery pollen.
    For the next couple of years i grew both these selections indoors and out with awe inspiring results, some of the frostiest easiest to grow seed i'd ever come across. It was sold medicinally as the koolaid and the mountain goo to the local med clubs with very favorable reviews. Soon I realized the stock was getting mighty low, 40 of each left, so i decided on an open pollenation of the bx1m1 as a preservation method more than anything, for myself as well as cannaphiles like you crazy fuckers. There are less than 1000 beans of it as well as a soulshine and a grapefruit i threw in for kicks. Should be lots of variation but look for the dark ass green with the silver flowers and you'll be on the right" - Cannabis Cowboy
    bx1m1 - (grapefruit x ???) A mystery batch of seed by Breeder Steve

    Any information that can fill any of the blanks on the list would be especially appreciated. If I've left out any of his works, let me know of those, as well.

    Thanks!

      I am sure that Mental Floss is Cotton Candy x Blueberry. I am also sure that Cotton Candy is the mother of both C4 and Frostbite.

        Hi TORC,

        It is always good to read your posts.

        Thanks for the info. :smile:

        There wasn't any mystery about the makeup of C4 and Frostbite, as it was freely stated. Please pardon my ignorance, but are you basing the stated makeup of Mental Floss on the similarity of the plants, or on specific information?

        Best,

        bopper

            Hi Bopper. I read it somewhere, if I can remember I'll find it and put up a link. But judging from the pics I've seen should be right. We'll mark Mental Floss with ?.

              Hello folks. Thanks for the replies. I knew I wasn't the only one who cared about Chimera's gear.

              Mental Floss I had a "mental block" on. I am almost sure that I've seen Cotton Candy mentioned in it's pedigree in the past. I'm revising the MF description based on this information in the absence of further evidence. Thanks to TORC for this and also for putting forth information on C4 and Frostbite.

              Bopper has verified the parents of both C4 and Frostbite as well, I feel comfortable revising it's description also.

              User Name and Reign of Terror, thanks for dropping by and showing your support.

              Let's keep this rolling. I'm sure we can fill all of the blanks.

                the same father of the shish was used for C4, and the mother was the same as the frostbite mom

                so C4 = NL x CC

                ....i talked to Chimera on this..he concured :wink:

                  I think you mean CC x Skb Red. Female is listed first, always.

                  All of the information I have gathered agrees that C4 and Frostbite have the same mother...presumably the Cotton Candy, as Skb is mentioned as the father in the breeder description.

                  From Dr. Chronic's website

                  http://www.drchronic.com/products.asp?recnumber=13

                  Explosive! Same mothers as the Frost Bite, but fathered by shiskas! Both lines are huge yielders; the shisk brings down the flowering time and the tasty moms improve upon the flavour and aroma. The trim from these busty ladies makes excellent bubblehash- truly worthwhile. Big big fun! Yield: way up there!

                    Frostbite uses the same NL dad as Aurora and GF x NL, if memory serves, and the same Shishkeberry Red is used in C4, Schnazzleberry and GF x Shishkeberry.

                    Aurora should be, I believe, (the Dom x Northern Lights) with the mom first. :smile:

                        Bopper, thanks for catching that about Aurora. Makes perfect sense, and I think you're correct on the Frostbite as well.

                        Thanks to Bopper and TORC for their contributions thus far. This is a community effort, and with help like this, all of the blanks will be filled in no time.

                        We still need information on Malibu. I'm thinking that the AE77 Calio mom might be the female parent, but I need corroboration before I feel comfortable marking it down. I had the Dom as the father, but I'm changing that to ??? until I get more information on the subject.

                        Also, anything at all on Redeyed Bride, other than it was a wedding gift to the Cannabis Cowboy (hence the name).

                        I'm also curious about the Super Skunk Chimera used.

                        Thanks again, all.

                          In a thread on pg. 2 called Sassy Frass, Chimera stated that he used a clone he calls "superior Afghani Skunk", not Super Skunk along with DJ's BB. Edit: I really should read first. I see you already had that. Sorry.
