Virginia 509 Certified Naturally Grown Seed
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

'Virginia 509' plants grow five to six feet tall with leaves that are closely spaced on the stalk. Its shorter stature provides better resistance to wind blow down than standard sized taller Burley varieties. The leaves turn a golden yellow when ripe, which is in about 60 days after transplanting. 'Virginia 509' has a high resistance to wildfire, moderate resistance to black shank and black root rot, and some resistance to Fusarium wilt.[1]

A Burley-type tobacco, it was bred as a cross between 'Burley 37' and 'Burley 21' and released to commercial seed producers in 1967 in its F8 generation. Our seed originated from USDA accession number TC 84 and sent to us by David Pendergrass from Tennessee.
