Challenger is a British variety that has become much more difficult to find growing in the U.S. or for plant sale.  It is a shorter growing variety in the Mountain View Hops climate, but boasts so many wonderful characteristics to include very large, fat, tight cones and unique flavors/aromas.  We have found that, when paired correctly, this variety can be a wonderful addition to some kombucha recipes.  We also have a brewer who loves Challenger as a fresh wet hopped addition.

Grown in Floyd County, Virginia. Vacuum sealed by grower. All hops tested at Virginia Tech.
