Rare and famous Louisiana tobacco known for its dark, black color and unique flavor when cured. Perique is a spice tobacco, usually used in Virginia blends. It has a dark, oily appearance, when cured and a taste of pepper and figs. Its flavor is a little strong, so it is usually found mostly in blends. It can be smoked straight, but isn't intended to be. Being acidic, it tends to alleviate alkaline tongue bite, which is so often a problem with Virginia tobacco, so it is recommend to blend this with your cigarette blends.
Our Current Tobacco Seed Collection has 17 of the most popular varieties we could find. We have access to other seeds, and will continue to expand this section over time, but this is a great start! Grow all of your favorites! Cigarette tobacco seeds, cigar tobacco seeds, fronto tobacco seeds, and more!
Please Note: By trade, we are tobacco procurers. Although we work closely with farmers, we do not actually grow the tobacco we sell on our website. For questions about how to grow, cure, or ferment tobacco, we will share as much knowledge as possible, but our hands-on experience is limited. 25 - 50 seeds per pack. All of our tobacco seeds are open pollinated.
