Nicotiana tabacum var. Little Crittenden, also known as Little Crittenden Tobacco, is a cultivated tobacco plant that is grown commercially in many countries for the production of tobacco. It is an annually-grown herbaceous plant that is found only in cultivation. This variety of tobacco is sensitive to temperature, air, ground humidity, and the type of land. It thrives in temperatures of 20–30 °C (68–86 °F), with an atmospheric humidity of 80 to 85% and soil without a high level of nitrogen.

Tobacco has a rich history, dating back to Christopher Columbus' first voyage to the New World, where he was introduced to the plant by the natives of Hispaniola. All parts of the tobacco plant contain nicotine, which has historically been extracted and used as an insecticide. The dried leaves of the plant can also be used, as they remain effective for up to six months after drying.

Nicotiana tabacum var. Little Crittenden is an annual plant that grows to a height of 1.2 meters (4 feet). It is hardy to zone 8 and is frost tender. The plant produces hermaphrodite flowers that attract bees and lepidoptera. It prefers well-drained soil and can thrive in various pH levels, from acidic to alkaline. However, it cannot grow in shaded areas and prefers moist soil.

While all parts of the tobacco plant are poisonous and contain nicotine, they have various uses. The leaves can be used to extract a protein that is tasteless and odorless, which can be added to various foods. The leaves can also be dried and used as snuff or smoked. Additionally, the plant's extract can be used as an insect repellent.

Nicotiana tabacum var. Little Crittenden requires a well-drained deep rich moist soil in a sunny position for cultivation. It is not very hardy in Britain, but can be grown as a biennial in areas where winter temperatures do not fall below -5°C. The plant can be propagated from seeds, which should be surface-sown in a warm greenhouse about 10 weeks before the last expected spring frosts.

Please note that the use of tobacco products is associated with numerous health problems, including cancer, lung, circulatory, and heart diseases. It is important to use tobacco products responsibly and seek advice from medical professionals before using tobacco medicinally.
