Origin/History

A sister of Jester®, Olicana® is more leafy, taller and vigorous.

This variety was planted in 2009 in Herefordshire/Worcestershire and released commercially in 2014.

It was not originally selected as it was Powdery Mildew susceptible like Challenger, however Olicana® is more tolerant.

The hop was trialled by and is now commercially grown by Mark Andrews of Townend Farm.
