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

A new dual-purpose hop released by the Horticulture Research Institute at Wye in 2001, Pilgrim has a distinctive aroma because of its high selinine levels.

Like many other varieties developed at Wye, this hop is sometimes known as Wye Pilgrim, especially in older references. This simply indicates that it was developed at Wye, not necessarily anything about where it was grown.
