Tobacco Seed Production

Tobacco seed production is a topic not many people know about. If you’ve ever seen a tobacco field, chances are you’ve never seen any flowers on the plants. That is because tobacco growers remove the buds before they flower, in order to grow bigger, more robust tobacco leaves. When the plant is not busy flowering, it sends more nutrients to the leaves instead of the flower. When producing seeds, the plants are allowed to flower and a pink and white flower grows in clusters at the top of the plant. The tobacco seeds are in pods directly under the flower. Each seed is so tiny, it is relative in size to a coffee ground. One pod can contain about 2000 seeds!
