    About Pilgrim

    With a much hoppier aroma due to its higher levels of Humulene and Challenger-like Selinene, it works well as a bittering or late aroma hop.

    The Breeding Of Pilgrim

    Bred at Horticulture Research International (HRI), Wye College in the UK, Pilgrim was a new variety released in 2001. With its plump and oval cone structure, it is highly tolerant to wilt and has a good resistance to both powdery and downy mildews.  It has excellent storage stability of the resins.
