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

Xanthy is considered to be one of the best varieties of Balkan tobaccos. Xanthi tobacco is a grade of Basma. It has the same outstanding qualities as Basma and the same variety of color. This oriental tobacco with low nicotine content is native to the northeastern Greek region of Xanthi.
The leaves are rich in essential oils, which are responsible for their own flavor and slow burn. It is used as a pipe tobacco alone, or in blends. It has a very strong but pleasant aroma. Xanthy grows to a height of 4 1/2' to 5' and matures in 50 days. Leaves average 8" x 16", are a light green turning yellow along the veins when ripe.
