Wondering if you can identify my hops variety from the photo I'm using as my icon (at left). I "borrowed" a snip from a neighbor of mine who is never home when I am around. Someone told me they look like Centennial. This was their third year. They are in their second year in that photo.

BTW, I tried what you were asking about. I picked the larger cones and left the smaller ones, generally lower on the bine. I'll let you know how it works out. We are getting some unusually warm fall weather here, so I might get a second harvest, so to speak.

Yeah it’s normal for the canopy to ripen sooner go ahead and pick what’s ripe if you can reach it safely. That’s one benefit of homegrown vs commercial operations. I picked starting from the top then stopped and left the rest to finish drying on the vine a little longer. I wonder if this allows the lower half to ripen quicker
Yup, ditto. When possible I do the same. Every year and every plant is a little different.
