Breeding

Released in 1875 by Mr Richard Fuggle of Brenchley in Kent UK, from a seedling selected in 1861, Fuggle is grown in Slovenia as Styrian Goldings and in the USA as Oregon Fuggle and reputedly as US Tettenang. In the UK, it is susceptible to wilt and has been produced in lower volumes in recent years. It is hoped that Wye Hops will make wilt resistant seedlings available by 2022.
