Looking for hops that do well in upstate NY (zone 6a).
I am currently growing Willamette and Cascade. The Willamette did very well this year. Cascades didn't produce enough to make anything with.
When I put the hops in 3-4 years ago, I also planted Nugget, Kent Golding and Chinook and none of them really got established enough over a couple of grouwing seasons. Those were planned on a less-sunny side of the yard with say 5-8 hours of sunlight per day. There is also a walnut tree nearby.
