Yellow Twist Bud
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]

A Burley-type of tobacco, the plants are sturdy with the flower heads reaching over seven feet in height. The leaves are heavy and large, averaging twelve inches wide by twenty inches long, yellow at maturity, and air-cures easily. Historically, 'Yellow Twist Bud' was grown in Kentucky, Missouri, and Maryland. However it does excellent and readily ripens in the field here in Oregon.

It was primarily grown as an export variety, but used as a multipurpose tobacco for plug, cigarette and pipe blending, and cigar filler. An old, pre-1880 variety. Our seed stock originated as USDA accession number PI 552784.

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.
