Off cut rhizomes are a bit shorter than what we normally send, and since cascade rhizomes are often small to begin with, “off cut” cascade can be about pencil thick and a couple of inches long. Still, these are viable rhizomes that will catch up very quickly in good soil, which means savings for you.
We recommend ordering a minimum of 2 rhizomes per variety. For varietal characteristics, click here. Rhizomes are cuttings from the underground stems of female hop plants. Planted rhizomes will take root so you can grow your own hops. Hops are perennial plants that spend winters dormant underground before sending up new shoots each spring which can climb from 10 to 30 feet through the early summer, yielding sticky ripe green aromatic flowers in the late summer. The flowers are used fresh for immediate brewing, or dried, vacuum-sealed, and cold stored for later use.
