A sister of Jester®, Olicana® is more leafy, taller and vigorous. This variety was planted in 2009 in Herefordshire/Worcestershire and released commercially in 2014.
It was not originally selected as it was Powdery Mildew susceptible like Challenger, however Olicana® is more tolerant.
The hop was trialled by Mark Andrews of Townend Farm, Herefordshire and is now commercially grown by Townend Farm and Stocks Farm, Worcestershire.
