This article discusses a specific variety of hops. For general information about selecting, using or propogating hops, see the main hop page

Fuggle cultivar hops grown in the United States are not considered as desirable as the true English Fuggles, but they probably retain more of their character than most other transplanted landrace varieties. American growers developed Willamette as a similar but hardier and better-producing hops for American use.

Fuggles and related varieties have been used around the world under various names, from Styrian Goldings in Slovenia to Tettnanger in the United States.
