Red Rose
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

'Red Rose' is a dark, air-cured tobacco. The cured leaf has a beautiful color producing a strong, bold smoke. Historically used primarily for as a cigar filler, it is also quite suitable as cigar wrappers and binder. Despite its thickness and strength, the leaf burns smooth and evenly resulting in a clean ash. The flavor is described as strong but pleasant. Its flowers are pink. Because the leaves tend to be thick, they are relatively forgiving and easy to handle, making them a good choice for beginning cigar rollers.

Our seed was sent to us by tobacco variety preservationist David Pendergrass from Tennessee. His seed originated from USDA accession number PI 552357 donated into their collection by Pennsylvania State University in 1961.
Surprise it grows here
Great plant! started indoors with my tomatoes. Even with the cool wet spring it flourished. It reached 6 feet tall with the major leaves 8 by 13. First time tobacco grower and it was easy. Use neem oil for insects. I gave the leaves to a friend who is aging them for homemade cigars. Lots of fun to grow.
