Description Growth & Analytical Data Planting & Growing Instructions
 
Mathon

Originally grown in the parish of Mathon, in Worcestershire. John Percival (1901) states that the Mathon is so closely related in botanical characters to the Canterbury Whitebine and Farnham Whitebine that they can not be distinguished from one another with certainty and are, no doubt, one and the same variety. The plant is vigorous, producing a good yield of high-quality hops.
Goldings consist of a group of traditional English Varieties, which have been cultivated for a long time tend to be named after either a hop grower or the parish they were cultivated. Goldings are recognised as having the most typical English aroma, there is special demand for these hops for use in copper hopping and dry hopping of traditional ales. Goldings are also found to be useful for late hopping lagers when a delicate aroma is required.

Availability

Plants in 2 litre pots are available from late May until September, for UK mainland delivery only due to transport implications. Bare root hops plants are available for wider distribution from November.
