Family: Nightshade (Solanacea)
Annual. 80 days to maturity.
(Virginia Smoking Tobacco) Native to the New World. This is a very mellow smoking tobacco that matures readily, even if the summer is cool or the growing season short. Flowers lavender to 5 feet. Highly recommended. The leaves are large and thin. The plant likes full sun and moderate water and prefers to grow in a well-fertilized soil (chicken manure) and a side dressing of compost or more manure will really boost yield. Sow seed in the spring or early summer in flats or in a fine seed bed. If your growing season is short, you can start plants indoors 6 weeks prior to the last frost. Press seeds firmly into surface (light dependent germinator) and keep warm and evenly moist until germination. Germ in 10 to 14 days. Transplant or thin seedlings to 1 to 2 feet apart.
