Flue-cured Virginia Tobacco
We deliver in different forms eg:
-battered straight layed
-battered loose leaf
This tobacco is also known as 'bright tobacco' because the heat-drying process gives the leaves a bright, golden colour. Originally from the south-eastern U.S. state of the same name, it is today the most grown tobacco variety in the world.
Flue-cured tobacco is dried in a closed building with furnace driven heat directed from flues or pipes that extend from a furnace into the barn. The temperature of the furnace is gradually raised until the leaves and stems are completely dried. Flue-curing takes about a week and fixes the natural sugar of the leaf, which has a high sugar and a medium-to-high nicotine content.
Flue-cured virginia is currently available in different grades and forms and we are happy to receive your orders.
