Southern Star came nearly a decade after Outeniqua and Southern Promise, and it, also, is a day neutral variety, meaning it can be grown in the minimal daylight near the equator. It is used primarily for bittering, but its pronounced aroma comes through as well. It has high cohumulone at 31% of the alpha acids which hover around 13%. It’s high oil content is responsible for its aroma qualities. High yielding with average storage stability, Southern Star is a quality bittering hop.
