OLD GOLDING
BUMFORD/WAIUTA

HERITAGE HOP FIRST INTRODUCED IN KENT UK 1790

The fledgling NZ hop industry was started in Nelson in 1842, being relatively free of wind to which hops are susceptible. The first plantings were Green Bine (Fuggle), Bumford (Late Red, Old Golding), Cluster (Grape, Colegate's hop) and Golding.

According to Dr. Rudi Rodburgh, Bumford  is botanically identical to Golding. 
" BUMFORD Synonyms-Late, Late Red.
Bumford is a late-maturing variety of hops of average yielding ability under Nelson conditions. Botanically it is one of the English true Goldings which is still grown in England."

The original Old Golding plant used for the propagation of the plants we offer for sale on this web site was found growing in the West Coast gold mining ghost town of Waiuta by Graeme King. Unfortunately on a recent visit to Waiuta we found the hop has been removed.
