to tell you the truth i have no idea what species it is. it was ordered out of a gardening catalog by my parents with intention of just using it as decoration. i harvested the hops and then decided to plant more. all i know is they smell good and it produced a lot of hops! i may be jumping the gun a little seeing as i have not even try tried them in a beer yet!
i also have another rhizome i need to plant when it warms up, its another unknown but this was harvested from a wild hop plant from northern california where my great grandfather used to be a brewer near where anderson valley brewing is now located.
