An excellent all round hop in the dual-purpose bracket with good alpha and aroma properties. Very popular used either on its own or in conjunction with an aroma variety. A slightly richer flavour than Challenger although quite similar in many other ways.

Challenger, Northern Brewer

Origin/History

Northdown was released by Wye College in 1970; it is a seedling of Northern Brewer, crossed with a Downy mildew-resistant male. It is an “aunt” of Challenger and Target. It provides cheaper alpha acid than many traditional varieties, while having excellent flavour properties

Agronomics

Northdown is a high yielding dual-purpose variety that is grown primarily in Herefordshire and Worcestershire. It has good resistance to Downy Mildew but is susceptible to Powdery Mildew and Verticillium Wilt.
