I grow them in western NY. They grow fantastic. I imagine that they temps are very similar in Mass.

I have 2 nugget plants. This is their 3rd year and I got 1 lb from each one last season. I'm south of Worcester.

One pound dry? Just curious. I inherited four four year old plants and I have no way of grasping the yield I'll get.

Yup, 1 lb dry.

I got maybe 5 cones from my 2 fuggles plants and few oz cascade.

The nugget plants are in full sun and the rest of them are closer to trees in my back yard.

Your Nuggets are 4 years old? So you planned them about the time this thread was started.
