Default Hop Rhizomes

1 (RHIZBG) Brewers Gold rhizome $3.50


1 (RHIZMHJ) Mt Hood Jumbo rhizome $7.00


1 (RHIZSU) Sunbeam rhizome $6.00


1 (RHIZSA) Saaz rhizome $6.00

Are theses a good variety of choices? The Sunbeam is new and an ornamental. Has anyone used the hops from this one?

I planted Sunbeam last year, didn't get anything. We'll see what happens this year.

I got cascade and nugget planted (last year). Think the nugget is dead. Cascade is already to about 1' and I need to hack off the smaller shoots. No matter though, come July it'll be about dead. Can't stand the heat. Maybe they'll figure it out how to adapt one of these years. Was worth the try though.

Sunbeam has peaked my interest. Supposedly they can grow in shade?

I looked around the usual places that sell rhizomes this year and none of them piqued my interest. I have 6 varieties growing now so I wasn't going to do another one unless it was interesting. Sunbeam might be the one.

Cascade, Nugget and Willamette. The Cascades have grown like crazy. I got ~1.5 lbs. when dried last harvest. The Nuggets are not far behind, they'll probably be close to the Cascade this year.

Unfortunately, the Willamettes never took off after two years. I think maybe they are just too finicky for this climate and soil. I'm looking to get a Magnum 'zome this year to take their place.

Technically, I don't have ANY planted yet, but I ordered three Cascade rhizomes. Seem to be a hardy breed that some people in similar locales have had success with. Thought about getting a Centential or something else in addition to the Cascade, but I figured there's nothing wrong with an all-Cascade, fresh-hopped APA...

Incidentally, I heard on an old episode of Basic Brewing Radio this morning that the first hop plants in the country were planted around Cooperstown, NY. My wife's friend has a dairy farm in the general area with a ton of wild hops; makes me wonder if some of those are decended from some of the original varieties planted in the U.S.

I planted tettnang last year and had almost 2 oz from it. This year I hope to add Mt. Hood and Saaz.
