We Offer a Selection Of Rhizome Types

  The pictures below are examples of a regular rhizome, extra large, and  rooted rhizomes. The photo on the left shows the difference between a regular rhizome and an extra large. Extra large rhizomes are at least 3/4" in diameter, generally much bigger. Most of them are 1" in diameter and larger. They have way more growing buds than a typical hop rhizome (25 or more) giving them a faster start to a mature set of vines. The photo on the right shows an example of a rooted rhizome. Rooted rhizomes come from regular rhizomes that were re-planted and grown out for a season allowing them to produce a root system, a crown and more buds. This makes them one year ahead of the typical rhizome on the market and more likely to produce cones. Scroll to the bottom for a complete list or check the drop down menus in the list below for availability of XL and Rooted Rhizomes.
Hops Rhizomes labeled (Certified Organic) are grown at The Thyme with certified organic methods according to the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
Hop Rhizomes labeled (Conventional) are grown by conventional growing methods not necessary organic.
