Longbottom in the Southfarthing was the first place in the Shire where pipe-weed was grown, and so Longbottom Leaf must have been one of the oldest and most established types (if not the original variety). The first Leaf-grower was Tobold Hornblower, and his family continued the tradition.
Portrayal in adaptations
2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:
- The smoke from Longbottom Leaf takes the form of a horizontal smoke ring that appears behind the character's head. This effect appears to be broken or bugged. From the front, only the default cloud of thick smoke can be seen.
