OTHER INFORMATION: This hop and USDA 61019 are referred as Styrian by the trade. They are exported widely from Yugoslavia to many countries around the world. This selection, like the preceding Yugoslavia Golding, is nearly identical to Fuggle from which it was developed. The name "Golding" is a misnomer, since this hop is a Fuggle-type and differs significantly from the English"Golding" hops.
