A flue cured tobacco; primarily used for cigarette and pipe blends.

Virginia Bright Leaf Certified Naturally Grown Seed
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

Bright leaf tobaccos became popular in the early 1800s as the demand for milder and more aromatic products arose. Farmers experimented with growing and curing methods for years, but the big breakthrough, like many great innovations, occurred by accident. Fires had long been used to cure tobacco, but it was in about 1839 that someone used charcoal to restart a curing fire. This created a high heat condition which resulted in a bright, yellow cured leaf. 'Virginia Bright Leaf' tobacco has a rather wide range of adaptability, does well in most locations,[1] and is suited to any type of soil, but preforms best on lighter types.[2]

'Virginia Bright Leaf' tobacco is a flue-cured type that was historically used for cigarette and pipe blends. Our seed stock originated from the USDA's accession number PI 552385. Each packet contains approximately 100 seeds.
Germinated well
I love the quality of the seed. I've bought several different breeds all by seed from David Pendergrass. Virginia Bright leaf germinated well with package instructions, germination took 21 days. I also started the seed in an old plastic ice cream pail, with seeds sprinkled on the surface. These took 14-21 days. It is very humid in Louisiana, where I'm growing and tried another method. Using Cow Pots, I used a 50/50 seed starting soil with wood ash. Virginia Bright leaf germinated in less than 7 days. I will be buying more varieties. Thank you for an OUTSTANDING product. Germination rate above 80%.
