Walker's Broadleaf Certified Naturally Grown Seed
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]
'Walker's Broadleaf', also known as "Walkers Broad Leaf," is an old fire cured-type cigar tobacco. It produces large, ten inch by twenty-nine inch leaves that are broadest at the middle, narrower at the two equal ends, with the length being over twice the width. It has tolerance to black root rot, no resistance to black shank, and no resistance to mosaic.

Originating in Cumberland County, Virginia as a farmer selection,[1] it was donated into the USDA's tobacco collection in August of 1961 by the Virginia Crop Improvement Association. Our seed originated from USDA accession number PI 552374 and sent to us by David Pendergrass from Tennessee.
