I've scouted all over upstate NY and haven't seen any other hops growing wild... There are a TON of grapes tho.... I can say that the hops I've planted have grown and produced quite well, just make sure you use some sand in the soil mix.....

I wonder if the seed making process diminishes the AA%? The ones that I harvested had decent AA% and made seeds. The guys at the brew store thought that they were Hellertau-ish. I did not dig rhizomes, but I may.

yes, i can guarantee that once a seed is developing, energy is diverted away from the other aspects of staying alive.

it also (I think) puts a booster rocket under the tannin extraction graph.

Yep to the tannin...and pollination screws up the alpha acids. Dig up the female rhizomes and plant them elsewhere to see what they are really like.

I know this is a very old thread but Ben, did you ever find any wild hops in West TN?

Im in middle TN and have some rhizomes ordered, first time growing. Have you had good luck growing them?
