Sticklebract is a dual-use New Zealand variety and another variety bred to stem the issues from Black Root Rot that were present in the country during the mid 20th century. It was selected as a seedling in the 1970’s from open pollinated First Choice.
Stickleback’s dominant aroma comes from high selinene and high myrcene resulting in a somewhat English, piney-citrusy bouquet.
