About this Hop
Progress makes an excellent bittering and late aroma hop.
Originally introduced as a replacement for Fuggle, a seedling of WGV crossed with OB79, it was developed at Wye College in the UK in 1951 and released for commercial growing in 1964. Progress is a tall hop with a cone structure similar but more open than that of Fuggle and it has a tolerance to wilt, but a susceptibility to powdery and downy mildews.
