Perique is a type of tobacco from Saint James Parish, Louisiana, known for its strong, powerful, and fruity aroma. In 1776, the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes were cultivating a variety of tobacco with a distinctive flavor. A farmer named Pierre Chenet is credited with first turning this local tobacco into what is now known as Perique in 1824 through the technique of pressure-fermentation.

The plants grow to 5′ or more and will produce 18-22 leaves per plant. But they are usually kept suckerless,  pruned to 12 leaves through their early growth, and harvested before reaching maturity. Leaves are a dark green, 10″-12″ wide and 24″-28″ in length. Blooming occurs at 55-60 days.

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
