Hop rhizomes are root stock harvested from female hop plants, which
allows you to grow a flowering plant of pure lineage. You can grow
your own hops just about anywhere in the continental United States.

As with last year, rhizomes will be shipped to you directly from
Oregon when they are harvested, usually during the last week of March.
They are $4.95 per rhizome and shipping is $4.05 regardless of the
number of rhizomes purchased.

The following varieties are available this year:

Brewer’s Gold
Mt. Hood

    I would like to add my name to those requesting rizomes of Cascade hops. It will be my first try to growing hops and this variety came highly recommended. I have been reading up on the process and any help or advice you can share would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me when they become available. Thank you.

    I am a homebrewer living in central Florida and would like to know if I could grow hops this far south? If so is there any strains that are climatized to grow here. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Saw your post re growing hops in Fla–I had heard/read that it could NOT be done south of 35 degres long., or that crop yield would be bad or non-existent.

    Last season, I planted 5 rhizomes, Cascade, No. Brewer, Willamete, Chinook, and Nugget.

    Cascade, No.Brewer, Willamete died within a month or so–not because of Fla, but the rhizomes were rather puny to begin with.

    The remaining rhizomes grew well and reached 12-15′ (first year)
    I harvested about 1lb wet hops (maybe 4-5 ounces dry) from the Chinook.

    So much for the experts.

    I am located in central Florida, near Sebring–about 70 miles south of Orlando.

    Based on my limited experience, I expect to continue growing a few hop plants with satisfactory results. Maybe not as good as elsewhere–I don’t know–I also have heard from other growers in Fla–one in Miami growing in containers on his patio, claims to have hop cones in February.

    Thought I would pass this on–positive info is hard to come by.
