Tobacco, Perique (Nicotiana tabacum), packet of 100 seeds
Family: Nightshade (Solanacea)
Annual (80 days to maturity)
Native to Louisiana and originally cultivated by Native Americans (Choctaw tribespeople). The tobacco is first shade-dried, then compressed and fermented until it becomes black in color and fruitily aromatic, a process which takes a year to complete. Tobacco such as this is usually mixed with lighter leaves in smoking blends, cigarettes and cigars. Plants prefer a full sun position, rich soil and do particularly well in a hot, humid climate. Sow seed on surface of soil, press in and keep evenly moist and warm until germination, which takes about 2 weeks. Thin or transplant to 3 feet apart.
100 seeds per packet, open pollinated, untreated, NO GMO’s
