Heritage Gold (Burley) Tobacco


Heritage Gold Tobacco is one of the classic burley tobacco varieties, a medium to late maturity for light-air curing or drying, known for its extensive disease resistance package and strong yield.

Pelleted. 65 days to maturity.

50 seeds per packet


Tobacco Seeds are small and do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most Seeds. Germination typically takes 14- 21 days and requires a soil temperature of 65 degrees. The seed should be placed on top of the seed compost, do not cover it with soil. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date. Tobacco grows very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. In addition to needing warm soil temps, you can also use a germination heat mat to help in the germination process. Be sure to keep the soil moist while Seeds are in the germination stage. Tobacco seedlings are usually ready to be transplanted once they reach 7-8" tall. Transplant tobacco seedlings in the evening to prevent the plants from drying out and make sure you water thoroughly after transplanting. Water daily until established.

Tobacco should be grown in full sun and in well-drained soils. Poorly drained soils can result in poor growth, disease, and even death of the tobacco plant. Lack of sun can result in spindly plants, poor growth, and thin leaves. Once suckers and blooms appear on the plant, you can remove them to encourage growth in the tobacco leaves.

Typically, tobacco plants can be harvested by pulling the individual leaves of the plant or cutting down the entire plant. Once harvested, the curing process should begin. Curing can be done by air-drying and hung in a dark, well-ventilated area. Tobacco can be used as a medicinal herb whereas the leaves are used as an antiseptic. It produces cured lead that is medium to heavy bodied and tan to reddish-tan in color under normal curing conditions.

I have never grown Tobacco before sooo…

I have never grown tobacco before so there is that but I would say in a pretty experienced Gardner and I was highly disappointed because there was only three pelleted seeds in the pack and the rest was clay particles I even sprinkled all of the remaining clay, dust particles, hoping that there might be a seed in there that I couldn’t see. I pre-sprouted these to see how well they would germinate and I have a very short growing season so far nothing has germinated.

Hey Kaitlyn, Please reach out to Support@growhoss.com so we can help make this right!


Honestly one of the most difficult to start plants I've grown, but once they transplant they grow strong and fast. No real issues with disease just a lot of horn worms. Once cured it has a wonderful aroma and is a very smooth smoke whether rolled or in a pipe. For sure a going to be a permanent part of my garden
