Summit has the distinction of being the first semi-dwarf variety hops to be bred in the U.S. and the first grown in the Yakima. It is a Super Alpha of high distinction, not only due to its amazing tangerine/orange/grapefruit aroma in this bittering hop, but because it must be handpicked which is a lot of work considering its 2700 lbs per acre yield. It also has an amazing storage stability of 85% after 6 months. It has a complex pedigree, hailing from various combinations and pollinations of Nugget and Zeus. It has a higher cohumulone rate of up to 33%.
