Harvest timing
 
1 Attachment(s)

Hey all,

My cascades started to show budding sites last week! Is there a rule of thumb as to how many more days until harvest? Or is it really plant/garden dependent. My hops are growing out of state, and I cannot visit them every week. Just trying to plan around my work schedule, for when I can go out and harvest.

I have several cascade, nugget, willamette & centennials... all mid-season maturity I believe.

Thanks,
--LexusChris

Well, 1st four weeks have produced lots of nice looking cones! More than I expected for a 1st year plant.

Thanks for the info Suthrncomfrt1884! Because of my schedule, I'm going to go out the last weekend in August... 3 weeks from now.

Between the cascade, centennial, willamette & nugget plants, some may be a tad over-ripe, but I hope there will be lots of good ones to harvest. I'll learn some on this season, and next year, I'll try to be a bit more accurate on my timing.

Cheers!
