BOR 704 is so named for the “Bone Yard” in which it was planted in the Yakima Valley (Prosser) after the rhizome was received. It was Plant #04 in row 7. While BOR has poor yield, it has been used to breed other seedlings in order to pass on its low cohumulone rate (sometimes as low as 14%). But it’s low alpha acid content as well, plus a fair to poor yield has caused it to not find a place in the world of commercial hops production. There seems to be some confusion over its parentage. While some sources say it likely came from a Hallertaur Mittelfrueh, others say it is of Czech Saaz and Northern Brewer extraction.
