    New Zealand Southern Cross™

    An excellent all-purpose hop with a definite New Zealand fingerprint.
    SKU: HSCR0044

    Breeding/Development: New Zealand. Bred from New Zealand Smoothcone, English Fuggle, and an American variety, Southern Cross™ was first released in 1994 and has been a mainstay of New Zealand craft brewers since.

    Brewing Application: Mainly a bittering variety, the low cohumulone levels of Southern Cross™ make it a versatile early-kettle addition in almost any style. However, its pine/citrus aromas are definitely welcome in hoppy American styles.

    Sensory: Mild to moderate. Citrus (especially lemon) with warm pine needles. Late hopping can bring forth the citrus fraction opening up suggestions of dried peel and pith.

    Botanical Classification:
    Family: Cannabaceae
    Genus: Humulus
    Species: Lupulus

    Maturity: Mid-season

    Yield: Good
