New Zealand Southern Cross

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

Origin: 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.

Usage: 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.

Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: 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
