Dating back to 1956, Backa is an old, rare variety of aroma hop with an unknown land race pedigree. It has the potential for high yield in its native Backa region of Serbia (formerly Yugoslavia) but doesn’t seem to do all that well elsewhere. It’s highly aromatic and is said to have similar qualities to many European “Noble Hops”. The USDA lists two strains of Backa (56002) and (21080), but there seems to be some disagreement as to whether or not they are identical.
