But it was something like 3-5 years for research, send them your results and notes.
Research could include 'would like to test endurance to cold weather winters and the resulting affect on yields and quality' (kinda what I used for Japanese and Chinese hops requested: Sorachi Ace, Shinsuwashi, Kirin II, Kitamidori).
Or 'study effects of hemisphere change and cold weather winters on resulting yields and quality' (which is what I'm using to request New Zealand and Australian hops next year: Pride Of Ringwood, Pacific Gem, Smoothcone, AlphAroma).
Don't expect 100% success with your cuttings, as I received only one of each, and managed to kill half of them, but hey .500 is AWESOME in baseball!
I got some cascades last year from this program. Two cuttings. I was able to succesfully root them both but one was killed during extreme heat. The one that survived has what looks like to be over a lb of hops on it

I could build a freestanding structure out in the yard to push the exposure up to 1/2 the day at most, but that's much less convenient and I'll only do so if the plants demand it.

Any input from seasoned growers is greatly appreciated!
I'm in Brunswick....if you wanna check out my hop plants and where they are....let me know.
