Description Growth & Analytical Data Planting & Growing Instructions
 
Keyworths Midseason

It was raised as seedling OR55 in 1924 from open-pollinated seed collected from Y90 which was a daughter of wild Neomexicanus hop. It was selected in 1943 as one of the few varieties found to show moderate resistance to wilt disease. It is the mother of Density and Defender. It is a vigorous variety producing large, dense cones. As its name suggests, it matures mid to late season. Keyworths Midseason was bred by Prof Ernest Salmon at Wye College, Kent. Following Institute of Brewing trials in 1945 and 1948 where it was considered to be acceptable, the Hops Marketing Board arranged for propagation and distribution to farms in 1949 because of the urgent need for a wilt tolerant variety. In 1949, 133 acres were planted which rose to a peak of 573 acres in 1954 followed by a gradual decline.

Availability

Bare root hop plants are available from late November until early April. Dates will vary depending on the weather and ground conditions however, we hope to start lifting from the field by November 1st. The best time to transplant hop plants lies during this period whilst the plant is dormant. Plants in 2 Litre pots are available from May until September but are available for UK mainland delivery only.
