Details: A very simple and easy to grow tobacco plant. Many gardeners appreciate the plant for it uses as an attractive and useful part of the garden.
Medium, smooth leaf, cures to a dark brown with fine chewing tobacco flavor. High yields. A tobacco with a longer, more slender, thin, narrow leaf. This variety is great for chewing and for pipes and can also be used as cigar wrappers. I'm told that its taste is mellow and unique, with subtle undertones of sweetness, and it comes highly recommended by many Kentucky tobacco seed specialists.
