• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Knucklehead has kindly offered to let me help him out a bit with his huge seed grow this year. I'm excited, that will be awesome to get to be around so may different varieties. I hope to get to meet up with a bunch of yall this year. I guess I'm getting a little off topic here. Sorry about that.

You're on topic, there's six cigar varieties in the grow out. :)

Aaron, are you still looking central Al, Tuscaloosa general area?

With regard to Bezuki, only time will tell if the result when grown elsewhere (other than Indonesia) is better or worse than FL Sumatra, since both are derived from Sumatra varieties. The origin of Sumatra types (typified by the Deli leaf known as "Sumatra" wrapper commercially) is pretty hazy, but they are all similar, including Cameroon wrapper, which is also a Sumatra derived wrapper. I have grown FL Sumatra for a number of years, and I've been pleased with the large, supple, medium brown wrapper that results when it is sun-grown.

I'm sure the soil is different here, and there is no telling what the difference will be.

I'm more than happy to help out , Ben Brand supplied the seed to me, he was extremely generous, and now if I can give back ' karma ' would be great. My growing season is directly opposed to you, ... this maybe an advantage ?
I grew 24 varieties this season esp to save seed . I was late getting under way, I still have 6 types to harvest, I'm hoping they will make it !!

There are many more bits & pieces I would love to get my sticky little fingers on, but I can't take unless I give back !
I certainly don't mind paying, but that doesn't really help your seed bank.
I don't think any of the varieties I grew this year you were in need of, but I'll check again.
