Tettnanger (Swiss)

While it was initially thought to be the same variety as the original German Tettnanger, the Swiss-grown version is now considered to be genetically unique. While the original variety is also known to be cultivated in Switzerland, much of the branded Tettnanger (Swiss) product is actually Fuggle-derived. Despite this, it is higher yielding than its German Tettnanger counterpart and features a similar, noble aroma.
