Black Mammoth
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]
'Black Mammoth' is a fire cured-type tobacco that produces a leaf somewhat darker and broader than 'Madole', but does not droop as much.[1] The plants grow five to six feet tall, or thirty-eight to forty-two inches when topped, with leaves that reach twelve inches wide by twenty-four inches long, are egg-shaped in outline, attached at the broad end, and have lightly puckered surfaces.

It was donated into the USDA's collection in August of 1963 by the University of Tennessee. Our seed originated from USDA accession number PI 552439 and sent to us by David Pendergrass from Tennessee.

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.
