Hops - Humulus Lupulus v lupulus - The Plant Beer is made from - Perennial Climber - 10 Seeds
Common hop is a dioecious, perennial, herbaceous, climbing plant which sends up new shoots in early spring and dies back to a cold-hardy rhizome in autumn. It is native to the temperate Northern Hemisphere. The flower cones of the plant, known as hops, are used in the production of beer to impart bitterness and flavour, and for their preservative qualities. The extract is antimicrobial, which makes it useful for making natural deodorant. Hops also contain the potent phytoestrogen, 8-prenylnaringenin, that may have a relative binding affinity to estrogen receptors. Hop also contains myrcene, humulene, xanthohumol, myrcenol, linalool, tannins, and resin.
The variety we offer is common hops. We regrettably are not able to supply any of the other specialised hops varieties.
