Tobacco, Shirazi (Organic)
This rare, Iranian tobacco grows about 4-5′ tall and produces lovely white flowers with lavender-pink blush. Said to be a good, full-flavored smoke and also good for a homemade garden insecticide, though we haven’t tried either. We have been told that Shirazi is easy to cure out here in the West and doesn’t require a complicated fermentation process to taste good. Might be just what Oregon’s future economy needs.
