Default Wild Hops - Denver Colorado Area

I have located wild hops in the Denver Colorado area & was wondering how you identify what type they are. Is there any concern over wild hops?

Hello, where did you find wild hops in Colorado?

I have heard they are rampant in Central City, also Lyons.

You mentioned you found them in Denver? Cheers, Nick Teti - contact@misterphoton.com

There are wild hops in the Pine Valley Ranch open space in Jeffco, just north of the parking lot on the railroad trail. Both male and female, so watch out. I harvested some seeds a few years ago, but they did not germinate.

There are also hops on Plainview Road and 72, just west of 93. I was just out there, but did not look around. I have heard about Central City and Lyons, but have not checked them out.

The USDA did a hop collection survey and wrote a report. http://www.ars-grin.gov/cor/reprints/hopexpedition2002.pdf it lists their collection sites.

Naturally, it is easier to get clippings from existing growers. I have Centennial, Cascade and Zeus; I would give clippings out next spring.

I have Nugget and a high alpha undeclared I bought from a farmers market last year. Maybe we can trade some blossoms next year ? I also have a friend growing Chinook and Columbus hop plants as well.
