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.
