A plant that when harvested, yields hops that can then be used to produce beer. Hop plants can be planted in a growing zone or a hydroponics basin.

Sowing hop plants requires a minimum growing skill of 3, but any colonist capable of plant cutting can harvest them.

Raw hops are not edible and are only used to make beer. Brewing uses 25 hops, and produces 5 wort, which is then fermented to make 5 beer.

The beer-fermenting process takes 6 days, so maximizing production makes sense. A hop plant takes 5 days to mature (in normal soil), giving your colony 1 day to plant/harvest the hops and then cook the wort, which is about as close to a perfect fit as you're going to find.
