Chelan has a great profile, all very good to excellent in each measurement. This is probably why it is privately patented, and can only be grown by J. I. Haas, Inc. It’s only weakness seems to be a moderate susceptibility to downy mildew, but is tolerant in most everything else: to root rot, wilt, and to strains of major U.S. viruses. Chelan is high in both alpha and beta acids just like Mama Galena. Excellent vigor and yield potential.
