    Do you have any data yet on the ideal stage of burr development for fertilization?I haven't
    been able to keep good notes yet, but going by "instinct" somewhere between pinky-nail and
    thumb-nail size l...

    I have 2 females in burr stage and 2 males with flowers. One of the males only grew 6' and then
    flowered days after the Summer Solstice. I was wondering if this is a sign of dwarfism, or just
    early ri...

    Ha. Didn't look/realize that was you when I responded. Sure, we should swap pollen. Any tips on
    collecting and keeping it fresh?Place the harvested flower stems on tinfoil/wax paper out of
    direct sunl...

    By burr, I mean the female flowers before the bracts start to form. That's when you need to
    pollinate.Apparently my joke didn't get across, but yes, I am aware of the hop floral anatomy.
    Up for a poll...

    Almost the same situation for me... 1 in burr stage (Cascade x OP) and side arms starting on
    other plants.How easy to ship across the border?Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    Yep. Those flowers are now in a bag dropping pollen (hopefully). If it goes well, I should be
    able to offer it to those on my list soon. You all still have plants in the burr stage,
    correct?If by burr...

    Sure, here is a shot of the male flowers. The leaves look just like any other hop.Have you
    begun collecting pollen that you're willing to share?Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    The leaf pictures in the website are in fact different. They are not place holders. I opened 4
    different windows with a 5 lobed variety and scrolled thru them rapidly and they are different.
    The leave...

    Could you extend on this a bit? Once you have the Hexaploid... what can it be crossed
    with?Theoretically speaking...Diploids, which makes up a majority of the varieties
    present.Tetraploids, there are ...

    I just started growing hops this year, so have a lot to learn still.However, according to this
    page hop leaf changes shape as it matures. It says it gets more complex as it ages... can't
    really find...
