Cigar Wrapper Type Tobacco
"Historical uses for Cigar Filler tobacco were for cigar filler, as well as for cigar wrapper and binder tobacco."


Dixie Shade

'Dixie Shade' was bred to be used for cigar wrappers with lower grades used for filler and binder. When shade grown, the leaves are finer, larger, and more elastic than if they are grown in the full sun producing some of the finest cigar wrappers.

It was developed as a selection from the root-knot resistant flue-cured variety 'RK 25' and introduced some time before 1960.

My seed originated from USDA accession number PI 552353
