Anyone know who grows on Rd 56 in Reedley? He puts up some tall trellises every year and I always mean to stop by on the way to my in laws. If anyone's got any rhizomes they'd like to pass on I'm in Visalia and have been wanting to get some going.

Bummed to hear that the Magnums didn't fair well, I use a lot of Magnum.

I know this is an old thread but thought I'd put up a post in case anyone in the area is still watching it ...

I'm getting ready to retire in a couple months. I have a couple acres of good farmland near Fresno and I'm thinking about growing hops on part of it. Naturally, will start with one row of about 40 plants and see how it goes over the next few years.

Great comments here on varieties that have done well. Thanks!

Do any of you guys grow hops commercially?
Or are you just raising them for your own consumption?
When do you typically plant your rhizomes?
Drip irrigiation?

I'd appreciate any input from those who have had some first hand experience at growing hops in this climate.

All good beers have 4 things in common:

1. A good recipe closely followed
2. Good ingredients
3. Good sanitation
4. Excellent temperature control
