I smoke both cigars and cigarettes. My cigarette of choice is Marlboro Reds. Can anyone tell me the types of tobacco and/or the approx ratio of the for the mix so I can order the seeds and get them started?

50% air cured burley tn 90 40% flue cured virginia 20% turkish. That will get you pretty close. You will never duplicate it exactly because you will not be adding chemicals or reconstituted tobacco like the manufacturers do. Do not be worried, you will like your homegrown tobacco much better anyway.

I'm sure I will Drbob. That's why I initially wanted to start growing my own (because it was without all the extra crap), and for the advice I get is why I joined this forum. As always thanks for all your help. Ill have check my seed storage for the turk and va. I know for sure I will have to buy the tn 90 though. Thanks again.

tn-90 is a common commercial strain, It cures well and is quite mild. Other strains would be newton n-126 or yellow twist bud

50 + 40 +20 = 110 % :mrgreen:
