Hop Cone Update August 26 2012By
The Cascade hops are full of hop cones. They are still growing in size, most are about an inch long and will vary from one to three inches in length when ready for harvest. The Magnum cones are are not as many as years past. This weird growing season has affected them bigtime. Maybe more cones will form yet, we’ll see. The Nugget are loaded with hop burrs and small spikey cones, they will be full grown in 2 to three weeks.
