Isleta Pueblo is a Rustica variety believed to have originated in New Mexico. It is a very fast grower and matures in under 40 days. Grows to 5 feet. It tolerates cool weather very well and can be planted earlier than many other nicotianas. The leaves are dark green and have a thick rubbery texture. Air cures to a medium brown. Like many other Rusticas, Isleta Pueblo is high in nicotine content.
