Discovered as a chance seedling in 1861 and propagated by Richard Fuggle in Kent, England in 1875, Fuggle was once the most prominent English hop. It accounted for 78% of production in 1949. The variety is now grown in the United States, primarily in Oregon, and displays slightly stronger characteristics than the English version. Fuggle is often compared to, and used in conjunction with Golding hops.
