MAJOR TRAITS: Trait data is similar to USDA 21179, USDA 21185, or USDA 21517.
OTHER INFORMATION: This hop was thought to have the best yield potential of all Hersbrucker clones (USDA Accession numbers 21514 to 21519). There is no information about the extent of commercial plantings (if any) of this or any other Hersbrucker clones listed above. The acreage of Hersbrucker in Germany had dropped significantly in recent years (late 1990s), since major foreign customers were dissatisfied with the alpha acids content of Hersbrucker hop. Furthermore, Hersbrucker is now increasingly being replaced by newer German aroma hops such as Hallertauer Tradition and Spalter Select.
