    New Zealand Taiheke®

    Duel purpose New Zealand grown cultivar with remarkable citrus and tropical fruit characteristics.
    SKU: TAI

    Breeding/Development:  New Zealand. As the first commercially bred hop to come from the USDA-ARS program when first released in 1972, Taiheke is bred from crossing an English Fuggle and a male variety thought to be a crossing of Fuggle with the Russian variety of Serebrianka.
