Maryland Type Tobacco
"Historical uses for Maryland tobacco included pipe and cigarette tobacco blending as well as cigar uses."



Keller is a "Maryland-type" of tobacco historically grown for use in pipe and cigarette tobacco blends. It was also used as cigar filler. USDA accession number PI 552669. Note: Maryland-type tobacco plants are tall with large leaves that are air-cured like Burley-types, but darker green. Cured leaf can be mottled in color but has excellent burning properties, neutral aroma, and low to medium nicotine levels. Reportedly used in certain American and Swiss cigarette brands.
