leaves are kind of dry and stiff feeling, is producing some hops (first year) and I have 7 other cultivars near it and none of the others are having this problem. Leaves are just weird looking and plant is very "naked" looking compared to the others around it. Thanks for your time.
To the right is a Teamaker [which btw, has a base bine as thick as my index finger and HUGE cones ] and left is Nugget. Both are very healthy and producing what I assume is a fair amount of hops for a first year growth.
