Hops

Asked September 16, 2017, 11:31 AM EDT

I have Nugget and Cascade hops and I can't remember which are which. The hops on one were ready way before the other. How can I tell them apart? Thank you Eric

So far as we can tell, Nugget and Cascade both mature mid-season so we don't know why one variety was ready before the other in your case and can't distinguish between the two based on that characteristic.

Apparently your dilemma is not uncommon:
