Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

The plants of 'White Stem Orinoco' grow to about fifty inches tall when topped, or can reach seven feet when allowed to develop flower heads. Its leaves are large, averaging twelve inches wide by twenty-four inches long. The variety is adapted to the less productive and sandy loam soils of the Middle and Old Belts of North Carolina and Virginia, but not to the heavy and more fertile soils.[1]

'White Stem Orinoco' is a heritage flue-cured type tobacco that was historically used for yellow plug wrappers, cigarette, and pipe blends. Although we don't yet know its exact introduction date, it was described by Killebrew & Myrick in 1897.[3] Our seed originated from USDA accession number PI 552337 and is grown for us by David Pendergrass from Tennessee.
