Hop: Pocket Talisman


Pocket Talisman is similar to Talisman and Cluster. Possibly a dwarf hop based on size, it was found in a commercial field of Talisman in Idaho in the early 1970s. A strange rhizome shape and behavior coupled with crown gail infection make it extremely difficult to establish. Due to that fact growing commercially has been almost non-existent.

Did you know?
  • Dwarf variety hops grow shorter in height than traditional varieties but, importantly, produce the same yield. This combination makes harvest easier.
Recently added hops
  • Storage: is based on the percentage of alpha acids remaining after 6 months at 20*F.
  • Oil composition percetages are based on the total percentage of oil in the hop. Example: 10 - 20% means that for the specific oil it is 10 - 20% of the overall oil make up.
