Organic Rooted Cascade Hop Rhizome

Certified Organic Rooted Rhizomes are two-year hop plants organically grown without the use of pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. They have produced crowns full of buds ready to produce healthy bines plus vigorous root systems. The standard rhizome cutting is the typical way to start a new hops plant but it doesn't have a crown and a root system, that is created the second year. These Organically Grown Rooted Rhizomes give you a great head start towards harvesting that crop of hop cones you'll be looking forward too.

Very successful and well-established American aroma hop developed by Oregon State University's breeding program in 1956 from Fuggle and Serebrianker (a Russian variety), but not released for cultivation until 1972. Gives the distinct citrus/grapefruit aroma to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with it's spicy citrus aroma. One of the "Three Cs" along with Centennial and Columbus. Named for the Cascade Mountain Range in Oregon. Substitutes: Centennial (but it has much more AA)
