Default Seems legit!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Humulus-lupulus-AMARILLO-HOPS-VINE-Unique-SEEDS-/380559410240?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item589b1b c440


I can get Amarillo seeds for $3? Screw twenty five bucks a pound!


Haha... really, how clueless are some people. The fact that Amarillo is proprietary, and a female plant...?

Thanks for the link, I know its probably fake, and even if its real, growing from a seed will not yield the same plant as the parent plant, but it was cheap. I will report back in 2 years with results.

I really hope you are being sarcastic haha.... I was being HEAVILY sarcastic.. Read my last sentence on OP

No one has access to the Amarillo plant besides those three farmers. All hop varieties grown are female and on occasion will produce infertile male seeds. Never gonna work
