Bursa is one of the largest and heaviest producing varieties of Turkish tobacco, growing up to 8' with 30-34 harvestable leaves per plant. The dark green spade-shaped leaves are heavy and average 10" by 16". Because of the plants' tall columnar form, it may need staking in windy areas to avoid tipping. Blooming occurs at 65-70 days.
The unique flavor is spicy and sweet and the smoke is fragrant and highly aromatic.
The nicotine level is fairly high for a Turkish variety. Bursa is an excellent tobacco for a pipe or blending in cigarettes.

It should be moist all the time but not wet. Germination occurs after 1 to 3 weeks. It grows nearly on each substrate and is quite undemanding.
