"How mucch ??? !!!"
They're auction style. How much are they worth to you? Very cool to be able to buy the crowns though!

ehh, auction off a simcoe crown and see what happens :)

so will a crown immediately grow as an adult plant? i assume so given the price

balvey 04-30-2010 07:45 PM

yeah, I was wondering the same. why are "crowns" so special?

doobliebop 04-30-2010 07:48 PM

More or less. The first year a rhizome is not expected to produce much, if any hops. The second year will even be a little low on yield. This is because they are developing their root system, or "crown". I would expect a near full yield from planting a full crown....

There like ugly babies. At first your like damn thats an ugly baby, but then you see them 3-4 months later, and your like damn thats a fine lookin kid.

the crown contains a lot of carbohydrates (food) for the growing shoots to utilize until they can get up and running. once they throw out some leaves, similar to solar panels, more energy is produced from the sunlight on top of the energy stored in the crown. thus a more mature harvest than from a single rhizome which has only limited carbs. stored for energy.
