Hallertauer Mittlefrueh
Hallertauer Mittelfrueh is a very popular variety with a fine aroma and average bitter acid content. Because of its high susceptibility to wilt, this variety suffered from a dramatic decrease in cultivation for some time. However, due to increasing demand and the availability of virus-free plant material in the early 2000s, Hallertauer Mittelfrueh experienced a comeback.
