Cekin, along with its sibling, Cicero, is not grown in large quantities. Its vigor and yield are great in Slovenia, but it has not proven itself in test plots in the U.S. It has excellent storage stability, retaining 79% of its original alpha acids after 6 months. It is said to have a pleasing, distinctive, continental aroma, comparable to a Styrian hop. Very little Cekin is grown commercially due to lack of acceptance by breweries. It is an aroma hop.
