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

Pretinho is a native heirloom tobacco from Brazil. It grows to a height of about 4' and matures in only 45-50 days. The leaves average 7"-10" in width and up to 16" in length with a nicotine content of 1.8%. It is a good filler with a unique aroma and earthy flavor. Due to its primitive nature it produces many suckers, especially in the later part of the growing season.
