Description
 
Nicotiana tabacum Plants


We have had this plant in our test garden for the past 2 years, and it is so easy to grow! Lovely LARGE thick leaves grow on a substantial central stem; at almost 6' high, it makes a dramatic statement in the garden.

Tobacco, 'Ontario Light' is considered a medicinal plant that acts as a stimulant on the respiratory system. In large doses, it acts as a nerve depressant and has been used to treat whooping cough and asthma. USE WITH CAUTION as excessive doses can cause depression. We also grow Indian Tobacco plants.

This variety was created by crossing American and Canadian varieties in order to improve both quality, lower nicotine as well as increase disease resistance. Lower in nicotine, this variety is said to have a strong flavor. It is grown commercially in Ontario, Canada.
