Bramling Cross BRX

Great Britain

Bred from a crossing in 1927 by Professor Salmon at Wye, of a Bramling (one of the traditional Golding varieties) with a male seedling of the Manitoban wild hop. This variety with its good yield, early ripening, tolerance to wilt and some resistance to mildews gave many growers in Kent a good hop to start the picking season.
