Canterbury Whitebine

Well over 200 years old, Canterbury Whitebine is the cultivar from which the first Goldings were cloned in 1790. Around this time, Whitebine was grown prolifically in Farnham, Canterbury and in Hampshire. Limited information can be found on it except that in its wild state, it gave rise to several different varieties, each suited to be grown in various regions of the UK. Cobbs hops are an example and were selected from a field of Cantebury Whitebine in 1881. Mathon hops have also been stated to share Canterbury Whitebine’s “botanical” character. Anecdotaly, it is said to impart a delicate and pleasant flavor.
