    This humulus was bred by the hop research centre Hüll Hallertau in Germany and is fast becoming the favouite variety grown for beer in Europe. It is also a widely grown variety in the USA being a hop with a clean bitterness, and a subtle citrus flavour. As a plant it is a vigorous deciduous twining climber, with light green deeply lobed leaves and cone-like fragrant flowers, followed by the characteristic hops which are attractive as they are, or more importantly perhaps, great for beer making!

  • Garden care: Plant in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun, and tie in the twining shoots around the base of the support. Cut back to ground level in the spring and mulch with well-rotted manure or garden compost.


Please note hops are best suited areas where there is no dogs, as they can be poisoned if they eat the hops.
