Description Growth & Analytical Data Planting & Growing Instructions

Progerss was developed at Wye College (a daughter of WGV) and released for commercial production in 1964. Generally grown as a substitute for Fuggle in areas hit by wilt, it has many of the same qualities but in essence has a slightly sweeter sometimes lime fruit character which creates a softer bitterness. Excellent for pale ales, lighter bitters, wheat beers and porters. It has been used in Hop Back's Thunderstorm; Wood Brewery's Hopping Mad.


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.
