    Re: Tobacco seed for sale

    The online references I find for "Scantic" describe it as a Fusarium-Wilt resistant broadleaf cigar wrapper. It sounds like a disease-resistant alternative to CT Broadleaf. Thoughts?

    You are correct. I have it classified wrong. It is a cigar wrapper. And a very impressive and productive plant.

    Scantic: Narrative:

    A Connecticut broadleaf cigar wrapper tobacco developed with resistance to Fusarium wilt (Fusarium oxysporum). Reduced sensitivity to weather fleck caused by ozone. Agronoic characteristics and cured leaf quality evaluated under both experimental plots and commercial conditions. Over 20% yield increase in comparison to the current wilt-resistant standard, regardless of whether soils were infested with the pathogen or not. Yield increases over the standard wilt-susceptiable cultivar approx. 5% in the absence of disease and dramatically different (up to nearly 100%) in F. oxysporum-infested soil.

    The seed seems to be later maturing than Ozbas, but things vary from season to season so without growing it multiple times it's hard to say. The leaf on both strains seemed to mature about the same rate at about 70 - 80 days from transplant. Ripening is more subtle looking than many other tobaccos with only a slight yellowing at the edges. It air cures or sun cures nicely to a light golden brown.

    Both are dark fire cured varieties.

    PY KY 171 PI 578865

    The PY stands for a "pale yellow" gene that was bred into it to help in determining ripeness and to make it easier to cure than KY 171.

    Narrative:
    Pale yellow breeding line that is agronomicaly comparable to KY 171. Based on three years of testing, has 17 leaves per plant, plant height of 72 cm, leaf length at midstalk of 83 cm, leaf width at midstalk of 36 cm and a cured-leaf yield of 247 grams per plant. Leaves turn yellow about 4 to 5 weeks after topping, whereas, KY 171 stays green. Nicotine level in percent of dry weight 5.31 compared to 4.70 for KY 171.

    KY 171 PI 527338
    Narrative:
    Plants dark, fire-cured type (22 and 23). Released for its good yield of high quality leaf and disease resistance. Alkaloid content of cured leaf is 5.75%. Cured leaf rated good to excellent with acceptable leaf chemistry. High resistance to TMV, wildfire (Pseudomonas Tabaci) and black root rot (Thielaviopsis basicola). Medium resistance to races R0 and R1 of black shank.

    VA 355 PI 604198

    I remember Knucklehead saying here once that this was his favorite dark tobacco. It is low growing at only 4-5' in height with good weather and wind resistance and large leaves.

    Narrative
    Fire-cured tobacco variety. Average yield 2270 kg/ha with an average grade index of 63. About 58 cm tall, produces an average of 12 harvested leaves when topped, flowers about 59 d after transplanting, and has less than one ground sucker per 18 plant plot. Average leaf length and width of both the middle and top leaf 78 and 37 cm, respectively. Average nicotine concentration 5.59%. Based on disease incidence, 61% greater level of resistance to race 0 black shank and more resistant to race 1 black shank than VA 309.

    Do you have any Piloto Cubano seeds?

    Here it is close to time for me to start seeds and I am still pondering on what to grow this year .

    I sure hope you do grow Piloto! I would love to see how it turns out when grown domestically by someone who knows what they're doing!
