Nugget Rooted Rhizomes
Our All Natural Rooted Rhizomes are two-year hop plants all naturally 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 Certified Organic Rooted Rhizomes give you a great head start towards harvesting that crop of hop cones you'll be looking forward to.
Primarily a bittering hop Nugget is often considered a dual-purpose hop with it high alpha content and pleasant herbal spice aroma with a hint of peach and pear. Bred from Brewer's Gold hops and released in 1982 from USDA Hop Research Facility in Corvallis, Oregon, Nugget has become widely popular as a vigorous grower and a high yielding hop. Recommended for trellises and arbors to provide shade and privacy.
