Goldings is an old long-established variety originating in Kent, England. It incorporates a group of similar varieties that harvest at different times, known as Cobbs, Amos’ Early Bird, Eastwell, Mathon and East Kent. Historically, other clones such as Bramling, Canterbury, Rodmersham and Petham were also grown. It is a tall hop with loose low yielding cones and is susceptible to downy mildew and wilt.
