Tobacco, Havana (Nicotiana tabacum), packet of 100 seeds, organic
Family: Nightshade (Solanacea)
Havana 608 is a special Cuban cultivar, which cures out to be a dark-leaved, aromatic cigar or chewing tobacco. This is a powerful cultivar that is very much worth growing. I find these to be very thick-leaved and resistant to disease and insect predation. The plant produces large leaves and flowers pink to 5 feet. In the early spring, press the seed into the surface of good potting soil in a flat, and keep warm and moist until germination. Thin the seedlings, and prick up to 4 inch pots after they attain 2 sets of true leaves. Grow on that way until the danger of frost is passed, then transplant out to the garden. Give nitrogen-rich fertilizer, manure or compost and space plants 2 feet apart.
