Well, there is no real way to find out other than to try, so I have ordered 4 types of rhizomes. A friend is giving me another variety of rhizome that he grows here locally. A client of mine whom is a botonist is ordering me another type of hops that is a late bloomer, so I'll have late season harvests as well (assuming they grow).. So, I'll be planting about 6 different types. I've already started preping spots around my property. I have chosen spots with full sun, partial sun, and low sun. Let the El Paso desert hops experiment begin!

Sounds like a plan. They should do a lot better in Querque than down here because of the lower temps. As soon as they start popping up I'll get you some.

Keep us posted on your success. If you can grow in Laredo you can grow anywhere!

Well, I only ended up planting 4 types of rhizome so far. I planted Cascades, nugget, Mt. Hood, and Sterling.. They've all sprouted and look good. Hopefully they'll do well...

How are your hops doing since we've enter pre-hell summer (soon to enter 9th level Armageddon hell)?

They're struggling a little, but they're growing. I have to keep the soil wet 24/7.. I don't expect to get much of anything out of them this year, but maybe next year they will be doing a little better. The experiment continues!

Struggling in the 100+ degree heat, but it's growing. It's at about 5 foot tall, but it seems very skinny and lanky. Hopefully it will beef up after time.
