Hop: Fuggle (US)


Fuggle (US) has lineage back to the original English Fuggle. Due to climate conditions, the United States Fuggle (US) has some different characteristics (essential oil content carries different flavor/aroma).

Obtained from England, Wye College (possibly), around 1950 by United States Department of Agriculture. Replaced by Willamette. Oddly, this is the mother of USDA 21003, the version of Fuggle that gave rise to Willamette.
