Southern Cross (NZ) Hop Rhizomes

A unique dual purpose hop released from the HortResearch hop breeding program at Riwaka, New Zealand in 1994. Southern Cross is a triploid cross between New Zealand SmoothCone and Cali (short for Californian) and English Fuggle. Its high alpha content is a soft bitterness paired with a flavor of lemon jest, pine and spiciness. The balance of oils, flavor and aroma seems to have no substitute with other hop varieties.
