Can you ID my hops?
1 Attachment(s)

Hi, Im growing 2 types of hops but mixed them up... One is cascade and the other is nugget. I included a picture, here are some notes:

Long cone : Early to flower and develop now almost ready for harvest. smells hoppy

Round cone : slower to develop, many cones still small. smells grassy.

Thanks for your thoughts,

I am growing both and thought some images might help confirm what others have already said.

Luckily, you are growing some of the only hops that are easy to identify. Not all the cones on a plant will be the same (especially on younger bines), but overall:
- Nugget is rounder with tight, smooth cones.
- Cascade cones are longer with a distinct, square profile.
