A heirloom Maryland type tobacco. A very good producer with sharp pointed leaves growing to over 30 inches long and 16 inches wide. Air cures easily to a rich reddish brown color. A medium flavored smoke which is excellent for cigarettes, alone, or as a blend. Also used in cigars and pipe tobaccos. Matures in 60-65 days. Although some growers have reported heavy suckering with Catterton, ours have produced nearly none. This variety is one of our personal favorites.
Suitable for Cigar, Cigarette and Pipe
