Red Rose
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

'Red Rose' is a dark, air-cured tobacco. The cured leaf has a beautiful color producing a strong, bold smoke. Historically used primarily as a cigar filler, it is also quite suitable as cigar wrappers and binder. Despite its thickness and strength, the leaf burns smooth and evenly resulting in a clean ash. The flavor is described as strong but pleasant. Its flowers are pink. Because the leaves tend to be thick, they are relatively forgiving and easy to handle, making them a good choice for beginning cigar rollers.

Our seed was sent to us by tobacco variety preservationist David Pendergrass from Tennessee. His seed originated from USDA accession number PI 552357 donated into their collection by Pennsylvania State University in 1961.

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.
