We’ve assembled our Tobacco Seed Collection for the completist interested in acquiring every tobacco variety we offer at a discounted price. This collection contains two packets of Nicotiana tobaccum– a Virginia burley type along with the coveted Iranian “Shirazi” variety – in addition to one packet each of Nicotiana langsdorfii (“Huichol” tobacco), Nicotiana rustica, Nicotiana sylvestris and Nicotiana quadravalvis. The tobaccums are the most commonly used species used for smoking today whereas the latter four species are frequently grown for ornamental purposes or their strong regional/historical associations with the indigenous members throughout the Americas. These species also have smoking traditions and histories, but they are lesser known.
These are all certified organic varieties grown at Mano Farm in Ojai, California.
