Believe to have be be of Tettnanger decent from the Yakima valley by Yakima Chief Ranch.
Saaz, a noble hop, is low in alpha acids but is still used for bittering quite often. Saaz was officially registered in 1952 but dates back at least 700 years, originating in the Czech Republic. It is one of the original noble hops. Saaz has issue with disease and low growth rate.
United States version of Saaz was started from a Czechoslovakian Saaz seedling which was received by United States Department of Agriculture in 1973. Difficult to grow and a low yield. Saaz (US) is expected to be related to Hersbrucker and Spalt.
This is the US version of German Tettnanger that came from a Swiss cultivar. Likened more to Saaz then Tettnanger.
