Each item is one complete dormant crown, or a field-ready plant, depending on time of year: a plant that is a minimum of 1 growing season old with a well developed root system with multiple breaks taken from healthy vigorous stock. It is professional quality and since it is a live rooted plant, it offers the best chance of successfully growing and producing your favorite varieties of hops.
- 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.
- 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.
