Wuerttemberger is an old, German, noble aroma hop which is no longer grown commercially. Thought to have come from a land race, its low vigor and poor yield have made it untenable for commercial growth. It has high myrcene at nearly 60%, and very good storage stability. If it can be found, it might be worth experimenting with for German-style lagers and pilsners.
