GLH Super Saazer - Field Grade

- Alpha acids: 3-5%
- Aroma: unique blend of earth and spice, peppery
- Yield: low, typically less than 1000 lbs/acre; unless grown high density population
- Storage stability: low, should refrigerate. Over -mature cones will shatter.
- Maturity: Early
- Grower notes: quickest hop to break dormancy; thus susceptible to freeze back and loss of crown buds- needs protective mulching. Smaller crowns with lower vigor. Seems to grow better in areas with more moderate winters. Responds to additional bone-meal and a balanced calcium/phosphate ratio. A candidate for short trellis and/or high density hop yards. Shows resistance to mildews. Does not tolerate wet, soggy soil conditions. Raised row required. Saaz combines very well with Crystal and Magnum. Takes two years to establish.
