Fuggle H (US) - Field Grade
The classic Fuggle was selected by Mr. Richard Fuggle in 1875 in England. Fuggle has slowly been replaced out West with triploid Willamette. 12-20” side arms. Many classic beer recipes call for Fuggle for flavoring. Will grow in hot areas w/ alkaline soils.
- Alpha acids: 4.0-5.5% - flavoring hop
- Maturity: Early – Late July / Early August
- Yield: Lower, 800-1400 lb/acre, unless grown with higher density populations
- Storage stability: very good 70-80% alpha acids remaining
- Aroma: Mild, pleasant, hoppy, robust hop with wood and fruit tones
- Grower notes: US Fuggle H still holds its own against the new hybrids, impressed with overall vigor, habit, and yield. Shows good resistance to mildews and pests. Shorter sidearms than Willamette allows tighter plant spacing. Responds to additional bone meal fertilization. Raised row recommended.
