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.

Default nugget

nugget hops do awesome in mass.. i have a 4th year growing now up at about 23 ft... you get alot of hops but weight wise they l;ack in because they r to small in size. great hop though... cheers

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