100 ' Sacred Corn planter' Smoking Tobacco seeds, N. rustica
Sacred Cornplanter is a very hardy fast grower that produces some of the largest leaves among Rustica varieties. It grows to about 3' in height and matures in under 50 days. Like other Rusticas, it has a high nicotine content, but the leaves produce a very light and mild smoke. It makes a good addition to blends where a mild flavor but a higher nicotine content is desired.
Full sun, moderate water. start indoors. Do not bury seeds. Mist with water often.
Cure mature leaves in shade for several weeks, then cut and store. If growing for seed, let it go; if growing for leaves, cut the seed stalks off the plant.
