    The Breeding Of Admiral

    Admiral was released in 1996 by Horticulture Research International (HRI) at Wye College in the UK and derived from Northdown and Challenger breeding lines.  It is a tall hop, resistant to downy mildew, but only slightly tolerant to wilt and susceptible to powdery mildew.  It grows vigorously, produces small compact cones and harvests well.  Its storage stability is reasonably good.
