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

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....

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.
