A low growth rate and yield in addition to a susceptibility to viruses are all reasons why the old German Landhopfen variety is no longer grown commercially. While it’s exact date of creation remains illusive, it has been documented as a variety as far back as 1851. It is said to have good European aroma characteristics and is thought to be a cultivar of an old German land race created via clonal selection.
