One Sucker
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

'One Sucker' tobacco is an all-purpose, dark, air-cured tobacco that was used for snuff, chewing, cigarettes and cigar blending. One sucker produces fewer suckers (flowering stalks) which is a desirable trait for tobacco leaf growers. Its leaves are very long, narrow, and have a prominent midrib.

The exact history of 'One Sucker' tobacco is elusive. We do know that it predates 1900. It is believed to be synonymous with a very old variety called 'Tongue' or 'Ox-Tongue' mentioned in very old literature. Our seed stock originated from the USDA's accession number PI 551290.
