Ontario Light Tobacco Plants

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.

Absolutely perfect!! April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Farmer Cat from North East, TX United States  
The plants all looked great when we got them in.  We followed the instructions that they came with. Got them replanted in a few days of their arrival and they are already growing like crazy. 100% of our order is in great health.
