Delgold Tobacco Seeds
Giant 6-8' tobacco with leaves over 18" long and 12". Delgold just kept coming every time I would cut it. Soft pink flowers. I was shocked at this tobaccos frost tolerance, but then again I got the original seed stock from Canada. This tobacco variety works well for us on the West Coast because it will perform in our cool weather. (2010 update. We have 12' tall plants growing now that have gone through a week of night time freezing lows that have burned our citrus trees, but not this tobacco.
BARELY cover the tobacco seed or don't cover it at all. Press the soil firmly and water. Keep evenly moist, but not soggy. I recommend bottom heating the seed tray unless your soil has a constant 75 degrees or more temperature. Remember tobacco is a tropical crop. As tobacco seedlings appear, gradually expose them to direct light. When the tobacco seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into pots. Harden off by gradual exposure to outdoor conditions. After spring frosts transplant to garden 36" apart.
