Dixie Shade
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

'Dixie Shade' was bred to be used for cigar wrappers with lower grades used for filler and binder. When shade grown, the leaves are finer, larger, and more elastic than if they are grown in the full sun producing some of the finest cigar wrappers.

It was developed as a selection from the root-knot resistant flue-cured variety 'RK 25' and introduced some time before 1960. Our seed originated from USDA accession number PI 552353 and is grown for 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.
