Tobacco plants thrive in warm, temperate climates. They require a long growing season, typically around 180 days from transplant to harvest, and do not tolerate frost.
After harvesting, tobacco leaves require specific curing conditions. The curing process can take several weeks and is crucial for developing the desired flavour and aroma of the tobacco.
NB: Tobacco is a highly addictive and harmful substance when used for smoking. While growing it organically can be an interesting gardening experiment, it's essential to be aware of the health risks associated with tobacco use.
