I have a Hermaphrodite Zeus plant that I got from Freshhops as well.

This is the second year, and was not stressed at all. It's growing like crazy to tell you the truth. I just noticed the seed pods today.

Not sure what I'm going to do with it????

Is this common with Zeus?



seems like maybe zeus is prone to this. Those aren't the seed pods  by the way. those are the male flowers. the seeds will grow underneath each bract in a female flower (hop cone)

I've grown many different varieties and my Zeus is a hermaphrodite, none of the others.

I have had some Tett that were male, never could figure that one out; the Tetts right next to it and from the same rootstock were female.

It's possible that your male parts zeus fertilized a couple cones on the tett which then dropped seed in the bed and viola male plants in your tett bed.
