Tobacco College: Growing, Nurturing, & Harvesting

 
DECEMBER & JANUARY

Maturation: a tobacco plant’s leaves mature from the bottom up. Mature leaves, depending on their location on the plant, contain different chemical and organic properties (see Criollo plant section). A mature leaf will...
  • lay horizontally on the plant
  • have a yellowish center vein
  • cut away from the plant "like butter"
Harvesting: The herculean task of harvesting tobacco leaves begins by picking 2 to 3 leaves at a time, once a week [starting from the bottom]. The process of staggering the leaf harvest is called Priming.
