Sometimes called “super Cascade”; Centennial has nearly double the alpha profile of Cascade.

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: 9.5-11.5%
- Maturity: Early season- Late July/ Early August
- Yield: 1500-1750 lbs/acre
- Storage stability: Fair 60-65% alpha acids remaining after 6 months
- Aroma: Medium with floral and citrus tones
- Grower notes: Breaks dormancy early, evenly & well. Bines emerge from crown more horizontally, a good climber after training, lots of similar sized bines from crown. Centennial is fussier about heavy soil types and drainage; does poorly if over-watered. It will tolerate more alkaline soils and water. Requires more labor than most to train and shows low resistance to downy mildew. Raised rows required except in very sandy soils.
- 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.
