CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Chinook organic hops rhizomes are usually planted to produce bittering hops. The cone-like female flowers develop high on long, very tall vines in late summer and are dried for use in craft beer making. Chinook has a very different aroma and flavouring quality than Willamette or Fuggles. Grow hops in full sun or partial shade, but be sure to provide ample vertical trellis for the tall vines to clamber up. Harvest and dry as you would any other variety.
