Jamaica Wrapper
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]
Classified as a "flue-cured" type tobacco, cured 'Jamaica Wrapper' leaves exhibit no surface puckering, typically are twelve inches wide by twenty-four inches long, being broadest at the middle and narrower at the two equal ends, tapering to a pointed apex with more or less straight sides. The cured leaf has a characteristic deep orange color and a somewhat oily texture and finish.[1]

The plants grow to about fifty inches tall when topped, or can reach upwards of seven feet when allowed to develop flower heads; its flowers are pink. Our seed originated from USDA accession number PI 552316 and is grown for us by David Pendergrass from Tennessee.
