Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Golden Wilt Tobacco
Golden Wilt is a bright leaf tobacco which has high resistance to bacterial wilts, such as Granville wilt and Fusarium wilt. It also has good resistance to black shank. The need for resistance to Granville wilt became so critical that in 1934 and 1935 the Department of Agriculture sent men to Mexico, Central America, and South America to collect tobacco Seed. The aim was to get material that could be searched for wilt resistance. Out of a thousand seed collections so obtained, one showed good resistance. A selection from it, T. I. 448A, was the source of wilt resistance that has now been incorporated into Golden Wilt.
Golden Wilt is a vigorous grower and reaches a height of 7' or more with large closely space leaves up the stalk. It performs well in areas with short growing seasons and matures in approximately 65 days. The leaves ripen shortly after blooming begins and turn a bright golden yellow color when mature. It is a heavy producer and the leaves easily air cure to a light golden yellow. It's mild flavor and smoothness make it an ideal choice for cigarette or pipe blends.
