My hops, of questionable descent, but somewhat Saazish were obtained from
the farm of a family of Czech descent. They had been growing on their farm
since prohibition :-). Anyway, it yielded 8 ounces the first year.
That is, I planted the root in the fall, and harvested 8 ounces the next
September. They claimed the fall is the best time to take root samples and
plant them. I guess the commercial guys take them in the fall and sell them
in the spring? I have never heard of commercial roots being available
in the fall.
