Description Growth & Analytical Data Planting & Growing Instructions
Prima Donna (First Gold)

Bred at Wye College in 1995 originally introduced to the commercial market as First Gold, Prima Donna is the produce of cross-pollination of WGV with a dwarf male. Prima Donna has many of Goldings flavour characteristics but with a higher Alpha acid at 7 to 9%, it crops with a large number of medium sized cones. The hop gives a rich citrus character with flavours described as orange peel and dried apricot producing a well balanced bitterness and fruity, slightly spicy note in ales. Prima Donna has excellent aroma qualities and much of the flavour characteristics of WGV, it has proven success in stronger flavoured summer beers and IPAs. The variety is very suitable as a general kettle hop and also for late and dry hopping in all types of beer.


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.
