Barnett Special

[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

'Barnett Special' is a Burley-type tobacco used historically as plug tobacco as well as cigar, pipe and cigarette blending. It is an old heirloom originating in the "Burley Belt" of Kentucky. Our seed was originally sent to us by tobacco variety preservationist, David Pendergrass (TN PE D), from Tennessee. It originated from USDA Accession Number PI 552589.

Tobacco plants are very interesting, ornamental, and have uses apart from consumption. This section of the website is intended for the historical and informational purposes of thinking adults. Anyone who has been raised since the turn of the 20th century already knows that tobacco can be addictive and can contribute to various medical ailments. If you do not smoke, it would seem illogical to start. We in no way encourage people to use any form of tobacco product. Informational References:
