• 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.

Come fall, I should have seeds for you.
I can tell you it is a very slow grower at the seedling stage. It is also slow to germinate. I would start it two weeks before all the other varieties. If you want to see what it's like to smoke, you should order some from Don.

The Canadian germplasm bank has an accession called Piloto Cubano Cotui. I keep talking about finding a way to order from them, but still haven't gotten down to business. http://pgrc3.agr.ca/cgi-bin/npgs/html/acchtml.pl?37617

Thanks ChinaVoodoo! I will watch your blog with great interest. I believe Bob also grew this at one point, and found it very slow to germinate.

I've used PC a lot as fillers in self made cigars while I was in the DR. Liked them a lot although they're a little on the strong side for what I usually smoke.
