CIGARETTE TOBACCO VARIETIES

The list of tobacco seeds we have suitable for cigarettes is listed on the left.

Cigarette tobacco is normally cured using the flue-curing and sun cured methods.

Flue-cured tobacco is kept in an enclosed heated area. This method produces cigarette tobacco that is high in sugar and has medium to high levels of nicotine. It is the fastest method of curing, requiring about a week. Virginia tobacco that has been flue cured is also called bright tobacco, because flue curing turns its leaves gold, orange, or yellow.

Sun-cured tobacco dries uncovered in the sun. This method is used in Turkey, Greece and other Mediterranean countries to produce oriental tobacco. Sun-cured tobacco is low in sugar and nicotine and is used in cigarettes.
