Origin/History

Found in 1987 as a chance seedling in a hedge adjacent to a hop field at Bourne Farm, Sandhurst, Kent by Chris Nicholas. The field, although growing ‘Wye Target’ at the time, had previously grown ‘Alliance’ and the oil composition of ‘Epic’ strongly suggests that it is a seedling of ‘Alliance’.

This grower selection was grown as an ornamental garden plant until 2004 when it was propagated to give a small trial area. A consistently good yield has encouraged the planting of a larger commercial area during the winter of 2014-15.

Agronomics

It is a vigorous tall variety with a heavy yield.
