Early Choice hop plant was bred by Professor Salmon of Wye College in 1927 using an open pollinated hop with a Bramling Golding. Early Choice is high yielding and was previously widely grown in and around the mid Kent area.
Increasingly used by brewers to be an acceptable alternative to use in their brewing recipes where the Golding flavours are required.
Can be susceptible to Verticilium Wilt.
Early Choice will grow to approx. 15-20 feet once mature.
