Keyworth’s Early is a venerable old English hop which was, for a while discontinued from production due to low yield. It was rushed into production early due to its resistance to verticulum wilt, and gained in popularity for a while. It was bred from a New Mexico wild male in open pollination. It has recently been revived somewhat in production, and is said to have lemon and grapefruit notes.
