Rhizomes are the best way to produce strong, healthy, female plants. The female plants produce the hop flowers that are used for brewing. Hops (Humulus lupulus) grow well in temperate climates and prefer lots of sunlight and water. They are a climbing vine plant that can reach lengths of up to 18 feet. Hops are a perennial that grow back from the rhizome each spring and die back to the crown in the fall. Most varieties planted from a rhizome cutting do not produce a lot of flowers in the first year, but will produce hops for many subsequent years if properly cared for.
Hops are very easy to cultivate and will produce more hops than you and your friends will need for many years. Generally it will take 2 years for the plant to become fully productive, although you will get a small decent harvest the first year.
For the 2017 season choose from Cascade, Mount. Hood, Hallertau and our newest addition, Wallace hops. Wallace is very hardy, has excellent flavor and citrus aroma. Wallace is a 200 + year old heritage variety that we have propagated exclusively at Wallace Springs. A hop you will love. Rhizomes are priced at $6.50 ea and plants are $12.50 ea. We will have Cascade, Hallertau, Mt. Hood and Wallace plants late May.
