Burley Cultivar 'TN86' Certified Naturally Grown Seed
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

Although this variety was bred as an improved Burley-type smoking tobacco, it is an amazing plant that grows from a seed as tiny as a pinhole, to well over six feet in height in a single growing season.

The plants are attractive and make a very interesting addition to flower gardens. Since their flower heads will reach six feet or taller, they are typically planted in the back of the bed.

Tobacco prefers healthy, rich soil in full sun. It blooms in mid to late summer and is attractive to pollinating insects. It is an annual (tender perennial in warmer climates).

Mike's Note:  TN86 was the first tobacco variety that I experimented with here on the farm in Oregon.  I was encouraged and tutored by my friend, David Pendergrass, a tobacco farmer turned seed variety preservationist whose family started raising tobacco in Tennessee in 1804. I learned about the culture of the plant as well as the once commercially significant tobacco farming culture in America. You can see more about this journey by clicking here.

Tobacco plants are very interesting, ornamental, and have uses apart from consumption. This section of the website is intended for the historical and informational purposes of thinking adults. Anyone who has been raised since the turn of the 20th century already knows that tobacco can be addictive and can contribute to various medical ailments.  If you do not smoke, it would seem illogical to start.  We in no way encourage people to use any form of tobacco product.

Loved growing these
Every time I walked passed these plants, I got a high. Ha, ha! Beautiful, large, green leaves. Just needed a little love at the beginning and they grew up to 6 plus feet tall.
