Yeoman (aka Wye Yeoman) is no longer available on the commercial market, but it has made its mark in breeding. It is responsible for Pioneer and also the Australian Super Pride hop which has outstripped Pride of Ringwood. It has an alpha acids content of 12-16%--very high for an English hop. It seems well equipped for disease resistance and was completely free of hop viruses when received. It has low cohumulone and high myrcene, so it has both pleasant bittering and a citrusy aroma. However, low vigor and low yield has caused it to be retired from commercial production.
