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

Rot Front Tobacco
Rot Front is a dark air-cured variety developed in East Germany in the Lausitz, and is now grown mainly in Austria in the area of the Oder and the northern Baden as a cigar tobacco.
It is also used in cigarette and pipe blends. It has a medium nicotine content and the flavor is sometimes described as spicey.
Rot Front is resistant to extreme weather conditions and has good resistance to disease. It is a very good producer, growing to 6' in height.
The leaves are closely space and upright, averaging 14" wide by 20" long. It matures in about 60 days. The leaves turn a lighter green with some yellowing, and the tips and edges curl down as it ripens.
