Default Got Cones?

Any one else getting hop cones?

My cascade is the only thing that is growning well. My goldings were doing okay but some aphids found them and I had to cut them back. That and only one of my centenials survived and it is a SLOW grower. Any ways both of my Cascades have cones.

No cones yet. My Cascades are maybe six inches from the top of the pole I set up, but no cones yet.

I got cones, but not that large.

3 plants are over 12' tall, others are 6'+, 2 about 5'.

No cones, but I have some hallatuaer that look like they are about to. My Golding did very poorly, but they are still alive. My hallatauer are about 10 feet tall, golding, about 3 inches.

My Chinooks are going nuts and have some cones that are twice the width of my thumb! The only others that have made it to full cones are the jumbo Cascades but they are going to produce MUCH more for first year plants than I ever would've expected.

I got mad cones on my Chinook. Sorry for the bloated graphic.

I'm not seeing any yet, but the heat has just arrived this week. Most of the cones will be on the sidearms and those should start growing in the next couple weeks.
