About this Hop
Another quintessentially British Hop, Goldings is a delicious example of the gentle aromas that English hops produce. Good for bittering and late hopping and particularly good in combination with Fuggle.
Goldings is an old long-established variety originating in Kent, England. It incorporates a group of similar varieties that harvest at different times, known as Cobbs, Amos’ Early Bird, Eastwell and Mathon. Historically other clones such as Bramling, Canterbury, Rodmersham and Petham were also grown. It is a tall hop with loose low yielding cones, is susceptible to downy mildew and wilt.
