300 in stock


Florida 17 is a high yielding cigar wrapper variety which produces a very high-quality leaf. It has high resistance to blank shank and rot knot. It was developed in the 1960’s and first released for commercial production in 1966. Florida 17 grows slowly early in the season but quickly catches up to and surpasses many other varieties in the second half of the growing season.

When grown in full sun the leaf will be thicker and crinkled than if grown in partial shade. Shade grown leaf will be flat, thinner and more elastic. It grows to over 8′ in height and produces an average of 26 light green leaves per plant averaging 15″ x 20″. It matures in 75-80 days with almost no suckering. The light green leaves turn yellow at the edges and become mottled when ripe.

you will get 1200 seeds instead of 300 but there is a wait of up to 6 weeks generally 4 to 5 though as it’s special order and as I have a perfected way to get these in I can offer this but

you also get the value of $25.16 for only $11.79 on that note also I have had tobacco seeds last me 5+ years with no germination degradation and I only keep them for a short time before I put them into my personal seeds as I don’t sell old seeds

you will receive some growing instructions with your order

if you desire registered postage with tracking please contact me I’m having a few issues with shipping rules at the present time chris-seeds@outlook.com
