Redsells Eastwell Hop Plant/Rhizome
Redsells Eastwell is a Golding selection made at Tony Redsell’s (a local grower) farm in 1988 when Wye College was trying to find viroid free stock of all varieties. It is a true Kentish Eastwell Golding. It is one of the most vigorous and higher yielding Golding varieties.
With alpha acid of around 5% it is a favoured variety for producing traditional English ales with a typical English aroma. Redsells Eastwell hop plant will grow to approx. 15-20 feet once mature.
