Chinook is another dual purpose hop, developed in 1985, but from NW USA this time. Chinook is a cross between the English variety Petham Golding with the attractively named male USDA 63012. The plant produces hops with high alpha but an aroma with a distinctive pine smell. This variety is widely used in American hoppy ales.
Chinook will grow to approx. 15-20 feet once mature. All orders are accepted from December and despatched early in the New Year; this hop plant typically sells out by the summer. We will deliver this rhizome as a bare root hop plant, carefully wrapped in damp moss to ensure it's ready to be planted upon arrival.
Please note, we send bare root hop plants overseas, but we do not offer a replacement or refund if the hop plant fails due to your growing conditions. Hop plants need cold conditions in the winter. Otherwise, they will not grow. Some hop varieties take longer than others to emerge.
