Family: Nightshade (Solanacea)
Annual: 80 days to harvest
(Small Stalk Black Mammoth) This is a Kentucky specialty tobacco that produces large, pointed leaves on a plant to only 5 to 6 feet tall. Tends to create multiple flower heads of pink and white. The plant holds itself upright on green (not black) stems, bearing clean leaves (less sand lugs). When finished, this is considered a dark, wrapper or snuff tobacco. Is it more “mammoth” than a standard Virginia smoking tobacco? Not really, although due to its short stature the leaves may look comparatively larger. Cultivation: Tobacco prefers a full sun position and regular watering. Press seeds into surface and keep warm and moist until germination. Tobacco is a heavy feeder, give composted chicken manure. Space plants 2 feet apart.
