I purchased 100 1.5"x1.5" bags from a seller on ebay for $2.39 including shipping. They're the same apple brand bags as lsbags.com carries.

Let me know in what shape the seed envelope is in when you get it. I'm hoping that the way I packed the pods in the Biz sized envelope that it will arrive in good shape.


I've found that if I wrap the small zip lock with 2 layers of bubble wrap and use a small bubble mailer I have no problem. You ship it as a 1st Class Package which costs $1.22 but it's worth it.


The ones I sent yesterday were in a bubble mailer and it was $2.02 with the tracking number.

Ordinarily I wouldn't either but sometimes it good to prove you did what you said you were going to do and also that the person receiving isn't just trying to get more. In my case I like to prove I did what I said I would do.

Maybe I'm naive but I tend to trust the regulars who post here. Since I give them for free, the receiver has no loss if they go missing.

Some of the seed I send out is for a swap. Granted I was up front about having to wait for my Virginia to go to seed but the addition of the tracking number it helps me keep track.

No bacco seeds yet to spare, 'cuz I'm still in the initial collecting stages myself. I am willing to take a little bit of everything anyone grows.

I do have non-tobacco to trade back.

Tomatoes:
Large red Cherry
Yellow Plum
Campbell 33
Rutgers VF
Roma VF
Red Pear

Datura inoxia

Okay, so you can't smoke the tomatoes, but you can chew them.....
because you EAT them! :D

The D. inoxia is strictly ornamental because it's highly toxic. No, it will NOT cross with your other nightshades, but will get really big during its second year, and help draw the tobacco/tomato worms to it, and away from your crops. Actually, tomatoes will too, and since we really only want the tomato fruit, let the hornworms have the leaves. At least then, they won't be eating the same leaves you all want, so tomatoes have a two-fold purpose. :wink:

To all serious gardeners, I'm interested in seeds of other tomatoes, peppers and even eggplants, too, in addition to tobacco.

I also have plenty of those little resealable bags. For those just willing to give me some seeds for gratis, I will include extra bags with my SASE's. :wink:

Humbly request a Varietal that will grow quickly as I am off to a late start.
It stays hot and dry well into Oct. I plan on growing in 8.3 and 5 gal pots, and can be moved into my porch.
Cigarette Blends would be my fancy.
I have a lot of Commercial pipe tobacco to trade! Just let me know what's your favorite.

Thank you!

the question has been asked. how many seeds is a 1/8th teaspoon.
the answer is 1/8th teaspoon weights .1 grams and is about 1,072 seeds give or take a seed.
my two black mammoth plants yielded 19 plus grams of seed or over 200,000.
