These open-pollinated organic Nicotiana tabacum seeds were saved at the end of the 2020 growing season.
Tobacco was grown as part of our first annual Freak Plant fundraiser. It was chosen as part of a project to return the plant to its sacred origins, decoupled from its industrial exploitation and association with illness.
Tobacco plants are easy to grow in poor soils with lots of heat. The tobacco can be cured for smoking or appreciated for its gorgeous flowers. Its leaves can also be steeped to make an organic pesticide.
Each packet contains several hundred seeds.
