CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Brewer's Gold organic hops is an old North American heirloom variety, developed in 1919 from an original open pollinated strain in Manitoba. This is the ancestor of many modern bittering types, and it's both high yielding and vigorous. Be sure to refrigerate harvested hops in both the fresh and dried stages for the best shelf life. Provide stout support for this vigorous upright climber. Harvest the flowers or "cones" in late summer.
Aroma: Hints of black currant.
Flavour: Lightly spicy with piney undertones.
Although we do not foresee a jump in prices, spring-harvested live goods are subject to shifts in availability and demand. Please confirm pricing in January.
Here is all the information you need on how to grow hops. Hops make a dramatic addition to ornamental gardens. Highly decorative, fast growing, trouble free, and cold hardy, hops give a flare and interest to gardens that few other plants do. Ideal for trellises and arbors and as a fast growing perennial hop bines are perfect for creating a privacy screen at the back of the garden. And no, bine is not a typo! A bine is any plant with a stem that twists around something as it grows. Hops are herbaceous perennials. Expect them to die back to the ground in the winter and to leap back to life in the spring.
