Fuggle was developed by the Reverend Richard Fuggles in 1856 and is one of the oldest available varieties.
Sometimes referred to as banana hops, Fuggle produces large flowers and tends to crop more heavily towards the head of the plant.
Traditional brewers highly prize Fuggles which produces a light flavoured beer. The aroma is earthier and less sweet than Kent Goldings.
Fuggle is revered as the classic aroma hop for British Bitters and Pale Ales, often used in combination with Goldings. Fuggles are also suitable for Porters and Stouts.
The alpha acid content ranges from 3%-5.5%.
Fuggle hop plant will grow to approx. 15-20 feet once mature.
