• 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.

Isn't anyone growing it?
Yes, it is being grown, but big tobacco usually buys all of it at specially discounted prices and big tobacco doesn't sell it until it is made into a tobacco product i.e. cigarettes, pipe tobacco etc.

The Izmir we received yesterday is from the 2011 crop year and looks much more like Basma than any other Izmir I've ever stocked. If anyone wants the new Izmir, just put a note in the special instructions asking for the 2011 crop year.

I can't wait to give that a try, going to be using it for a Frog morton clone that requires a basma note:cool:
