Selected by James West, a hop factor, from a garden of Canterbury Whitebine on the farm of John Cobb, Sheldwich, near Faversham, and introduced by Cobb about 1881. It tends to produce strong growth later in the season, so for this reason shoots of only moderate growth should be trained in spring. When ripe the cones should be picked without delay as they do not 'hang' well. The cones have a pleasing appearance and aroma, on suitable soils the yield can be very heavy.
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.
