Crystal, Liberty, Mount Hood, Tradition

Origin/History

Grown in Hallertau, Spalt, Hersbruck, Tettnang and Baden-Bitburg-Rheinpfalz areas of Germany. “Hallertauer Mittelfrüher“ is the traditional Hallertau variety although its acreage is gradually decreasing due to disease.

Agronomics

Very susceptible to Verticillium Wilt and is no longer planted in Wilt threatened areas. Average resistance to Peronospora and Powdery Mildew. Matures medium to late season.

Organic Status

Organic production is well established with a small number of growers, but yield is variable. The crop is pelleted soon after harvest, and therefore any whole hop requirements need to be specified by October at the latest each year.

Storage

Poor to Moderate
