15.0-17.0% AA. Grows well in dry, hot climates. Vigorous but susceptible to mildew diseases.

Columbus is a high-alpha hop that provides a neutral bitterness and an excellent aroma. The flavor and aroma are very pungent, so it is often used for late-addition hopping or dry-hopping. Great in IPA's. Flavor is slightly floral with some citrus notes. Also goes by the names Tomahawk, Zeus, and CTZ.

Rhizomes should be planted immediately for best results. If your area is still experiencing frost then you can plant them in a planter indoors until it is safe to transplant outside. The first years crop will generally be smaller than subsequent years. Since these are live plants, we cannot guarantee they will grow, so we recommend buying two of each type to help ensure their success.

Shipping Restrictions:

Due to agricultural restrictions, we can only ship rhizomes to addresses that are in the United States, excepting Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, and the counties of Bonner and Kootenai in Idaho. Unfortunately, we cannot ship these to international locations including APO/FPO addresses.

Shipping Limitation: This item does not qualify for free shipping.

to try growing hops for me. Sweet!
Joshua D on Apr 4, 2018
This rhizome was identified in the sales literature as being hardy and fit for hot, dry climates. Trying to give the plant a chance. And Columbus is an awesome bittering hop. Looking forward to a batch of green-hopped beer!

Growing in pot in central Florida. Ordered Columbus, chinook, and cascade. Columbus sprouted first and is 3 ft long a month after shipping. Two bines now with side arms.
Just over a month after shipping date. Longer bine over 3 ft.

Growing Well, Don't Use USPS Delivery for Rhizomes
USPS took 6 days to travel the 70 miles from MoreBeer's Concord CA warehouse to my house in Modesto, with detours through Oakland, San Francisco, and Sacramento along the way according to the tracking info, all locations farther away from my house than Concord..

Thankfully the Rhizomes I bought all sprouted but I highly recommend paying the extra few bucks for non-USPS delivery of a live plant if you want to get it in the ground quickly.

Cascade & Columbus Hops
I bought a half dozen rizomes a couple of years ago and I thought that , most likely, they would not grow in our hot texas climate. I planted them on the North side of the house and by the middle of March they were 1 1/2 feet tall. I am planning to move West in a few years and I'll be ordering 2 or 3 dozen to easily grow in an even better climate.

2nd year strong
These monsters are now in their second year and growing strong. The first year, I had enough for late addition adds that complimented a great blonde ale. Now, the second year should be enough for a Fresh SMaSH beer!

Hoppy Customer!
I ordered 5 rhizomes, all different varieties. The first one to sprout took about a week and a half, and the last one took over a month. All of the plants are doing great! It's been about two months and some of them are already 2 feet tall!!!! I give them each a good watering each night, and I swear I can see them grow about a inch everyday! They are beautiful, and I can't wait to harvest them. I love coming home to them! It is very exciting. Great buy!
