Hop: Progress


Another hop developed by the United Kingdom's Wye College by the Horticulture Research International, Progress was created to replace Fuggle. Less susceptible to Wilt disease (the issue with Fuggle), Progress proved to be susceptible to other diseases. Bred in 1951 from Whitebread Golding female and US male. Commercially released in 1964.
