Japan 8 is a very sweet dark air cured tobacco with low nicotine content.
It is a compact shrub reaching 6' in height with long narrow leaves.
The leaves average 8"-10" long and 29" to 24" long.
Plants average 28 harvestable leaves.
It can be air cures or sun cured.
It is excellent as a blend for cigarettes or pipes.
Air cured leaves are a deep brown and produce a mild smoke with a licorice like flavor.
The flowers are a creamy white with maturity at about 65 days.
I started growing Japan 8 from seeds purchased from this company. They produce uniform plants of exceptional quality. I took a 6 year break and stored the remaining original seeds. After all this time they still germinated and I’m doing a container grow of 8 plants currently. I highly recommend this company for the high viability of there seed stock.
Got this seed packet back when I ordered some tobacco for a different climate. It was expired but I am glad they sent it to me. Because the seeds I thought would work didn't, as it wasn't the right climate. However these ones worked perfectly, and thrived well. I got 6 tall plants and they even flowered.
