Does tobacco produce nectar?
« on: July 21, 2008, 12:29:48 PM »
There is a lot of tobacco plants around where I live.  And I am noticing that the flowers are starting to bloom.  Does tobacco produce nectar?  If so is there any kind of a wierd taste to?

Maybe I have to ask for I.D. before somebody purchases tobacco honey.  lol

Use of tabacco can produce a bad cough.  LOL

The nicotine is a sedative and I'm not sure the bees will work it well.  But if they do a spoonful of that honey would be a good night time sleep aid.

I don't know if it produces nectar, but I do know that as soon as it starts to bloom, the farmer will cut the blooms off. They hamper the growth of the plant. Jim <><
