What would grow best in NJ other than cascade. Would like to be brewing mostly pales.
Im in Central Jersey near Princeton. Mount hood has not done well for me. I also put in sunbeam hops and haven't seen a cone in 2 years. Not really surprised though... I have a black thumb.
It could be worse.
Cascade, centennial, nugget(have had great success with this one), Willamette. Its tough because some varieties don't do well in hot or humid climates, and with the way NJ's weather is so unpredictable, it wouldn't be good for the rhizomes.
I live in central jersey and grew cascade, centennial and columbus last year and they all did fine.
Well, I planted Cascade, Centennial, Fuggle, and Nugget... we'll see how they do.
