Hailing from Wye College in England, Petham Golding was one of the prevailing hop varieties grown in East Kent in the late 1800’s. Descended from Canterbury Whitebine, much like other Golding varieties, the variety isn’t around much anymore due to its lackluster yield, poor storage stability and susceptibility to Hop Mosaic virus. In addition, it has an unusual upward-facing sidearm configuration that tends to break easily at the branching point. Little can be found about its flavor and aroma profile but the variety is parent to popular US varietal, Chinook. Naturally one would assume these two varieties are likely to share some characteristics as a result.
