Humulus Lupulus Aureus – Golden Hop – female – 10 litres on frame
Hop is a very vigorous herbaceous climber with rough sand-paper-like twining stems, deeply lobed leaves and small green flowers, male and female are usually on separate plants.
We are offering ‘Aureus’ which is female and is a very strong-growing climber bearing unusual yellow leaves up to 15cm in length, and drooping cone-like, greenish-yellow, aromatic female flowers, followed by attractive hops – just like the hop fields all over Kent and Sussex you can have this wonderful natural plant. Once the hops are produced the bines (growth) can be cut down and dried for what is normally a very expensive item offered for sale at Harvest festival/solstice time.
