I've planted my first tobacco seed this spring. So far, the Virginias haven't sprouted but the Turkish Izmir and Samsun are doing decent. We will see.

I've read that tobacco will grow anywhere tomatoes grow. I thought about trying it out, but curing it requires special equipment.

From what I've heard and understood McClelland liked the middle belt North Carolina Red Virginias and for various reasons that kind of tobacco had been so hard to come by anymore.

Tomatoes may grow in many places but the soil & climate has a lot to do with it, too.
