    The Breeding Of Pioneer

    Pioneer was bred at Horticulture Research International, Wye College in the UK released originally in 1996. It is a high alpha, high yielding variety and is a very acceptable substitute for many other hops used for kettle hopping. Pioneer is a Hedgerow variety with a good tolerance to wilt, but is susceptible to both Downy and Powdery mildews. It has very good storage stability.
