Hey folks,
IF anyone has had any experience growing wrapper leaf (Conn. broadleaf or Florida sumatra) in Mo., specifically kansas city area, but anywhere really...if so, can you describe what the qualities/ drawbacks are? Thanks! Grokfish

Unfortunetly I have no experience in that town to give you answer, but I will say it isn't exactly the place you grow it more so how you tend to it. I can live in Cuba and grow the worst tasting tobacco, or I can grow it in Tn, give it attention, dry good, cure fine, and have myself a great quality wrapper. Just saying there are a few things going in to make a fine wrapper leaf. I say if nobody can give you answer, just grow both write down your findings.

Well, since dental floss grows well there, I would suspect that almost all kinds of tobacco would, too. Don't forget to invest in a decent pair of zircon-encrusted tweezers, though!

My apologies to those of you who are not Zappa fans - What the hell, my apologies to everyone! Perhaps I should just delete this.. oops, too late!

As long as you choose a tobacco for cigars (filler, binder, wrapper) and it has 60-70 frost free days from when you put it outside, then it's more the soil and nutrients you should be concerned with, tobacco will grow in a wide variety of geographical locations, including parts of Alaska.
