- Alpha acids: 3.0-8.0%
- Maturity: Early to mid-season- first 3 weeks of August
- Yield: 1520-1960 lbs/acre (which is outstanding for a noble type)
- Storage stability: Fair 55-60% alpha acids remaining
- Aroma: “clean” mild spice/floral with woodsy pine tone, like German Hallertaur
- Grower notes: great variety with good vigor and habit, not as aggressive as some of the triploids, grows more Eurostyle. Takes two years to establish; similar to other European types and requires acidic well-drained soils. Raised row recommended. Shows some resistance to mildews and pests. Plants respond to additional humic acid levels.
- Fully rooted plant - NOT a rhizome. A rhizome is a part of a hop plant's root system that grows horizontally underground putting out shoots.
