Mother to Comet, Sunshine was developed via open pollination seedling selection at Wye College in England. It was selected by Professor E. R. Salmon in the early 1930’s and exhibits a very similar oil profile to Comet.
While it is considered a brewing hop first and foremost, its lovely, lemon yellow colored leaves also give this variety ornamental potential. Like Sunbeam hops, it should to be grown in a shaded position or it risks sustaining necrotic burn when exposed to prolonged late summer sun. Its exact parentage is unknown.
