Zimmer Spanish Certified Naturally Grown Seed
Nicotiana tabacum L
[ Approximately 100 seeds per packet ]
'Zimmer Spanish' is an old cigar binder-type variety dating back prior to 1880. It is said to be an improved "Havana-type" like 'Wilson's Hybrid'.[1]

The suckered plants reach about four feet in height producing fourteen to twenty quality leaves per plant. The leaves are medium in size, have good body and elasticity, with small veins lending them to use in cigar production.[2]

Historically grown in the Miami Valley of Ohio, as well as Wisconsin, for use as cigar filler, binder, and even wrappers. USDA accession number PI 551284.
