Omega is an English hop variety which includes Challenger in its parenting is a high alpha hop developed at Wye College here in Kent. This variety never took off as it was too low yielding as well as being susceptible to a latent hop viroid which further reduced its popularity. The aroma content of the hop has been described by the experts as "pleasantly European in style".........whatever that means!
Omega hop plant will grow to approx. 15-20 feet once mature. All orders are accepted from December and despatched early in the New Year; this hop plant typically sells out by the summer. We will deliver this rhizome as a bare root hop plant, carefully wrapped in damp moss to ensure it's ready to be planted upon arrival.
Please note, we send bare root hop plants overseas, but we do not offer a replacement or refund if the hop plant fails due to your growing conditions. Hop plants need cold conditions in the winter. Otherwise, they will not grow. Some hop varieties take longer than others to emerge.
