Only smoke pipes now, and would like to plant some pipe tobacco varieties. Got cigar tobacco seeds, any suggestions what to plant for pipe smoking?

Definitely any flue cured (about half of your crop), at least one burley, two significantly different orientals, and one "other" tobacco.

Suggestions:
Flue cured - Delgold, Virginia Gold, Virginia Bright Leaf, Costello Negro
Burley - KY17, TN86, TN90, Harrow Velvet
Oriental1- Prilep, Izmir, Canik, Yenidge
Oriental2- Bursa, Black Sea Samsun/Samsun Maden
Other - Goose Creek Red, Kumanovo, MD609, Herzegovina Flor
