This coveted strain of cigarette tobacco (Nicotiana tobaccum) hails from the Shiraz region of Iran (Shirazi translates to “from Shiraz” in Persian) and we’re excited to offer our own certified organic version of this variety. The plant is stout and fast growing – more so than many other Tobaccum species – yielding thin leaves that are traditionally sun-cured and turn to a gorgeous light tan. Compare to our Mano Farm variety that is more vigorous in stature and has thicker leaves. All varieties of Nicotiana tobaccum make beautiful ornamentals namely due to their pronounced trumpet-shaped flowers.
75 days from transplant to flower. Annual. Seeds are certified organic by Oregon Tilth.
