60 days, 100 seeds per pkg
Virginia 509 Burley is a heavy producing heirloom variety that originated by crossing Burley 37 and Burley 21. The plant is pyramidal in shape and the leaves are closely spaced on the stalk. It grows to 5-6 feet in height. Its lower growing plant form gives it good wind resistance and is more resistant to blow down than many taller Burleys. It matures in about 60 days. The leaves turn a golden yellow when ripe. It has excellent curability both primed or stalk hung.
