About this Hop

Fuggle is revered as the classic English aroma hop and is often used in conjunction with Goldings. It can be used as a main copper hop and is also used for dry hopping.

Breeding

Released in 1875 by Mr Richard Fuggle of Brenchley in Kent UK, from a seedling selected in 1861, Fuggle is grown in Slovenia as Styrian Goldings and in the USA as Oregon Fuggle and reputedly as US Tettenang. In the UK it is susceptible to wilt and has been produced in lower volumes in recent years.  It is hoped that Wye Hops will make wilt resistant seedlings available by 2015.
