Wholesale Pricing for quantity of 50 lbs. tobacco bagged in bulk.
This tobacco is Flue Cure processed like most Virginia type tobacco. First priming means the leaves from the lowest part of the plant are harvested first. These leaves get much less sunlight than upper leaves so they are thinner than upper leaves. This tobacco serves two purposes…one, since it is a thinner leaf, it burns easier than thicker leaves. Two, this tobacco provides for a very beautiful taste.
BONUS:.The 2018 Flue Cured Virginia tobacco crop suffered losses of one quarter of the crop (125 million pounds) due to hurricane Florence. Some of the tobacco that was harvested has some damage to it. Some of the Thin Leaf has brown sections on the leaf that will not be suitable for shredding. Because of this condition, we are adding 4 – 5 pounds of tobacco to each order as an adjustment for any lost tobacco.
Also known as “Cutters”, this tobacco can be blended with other tobaccos just to assist in burning ability. There is limited quantity of this leaf as it is the most sought after grade by large manufacturers.
As with all of our tobaccos, this leaf is hand harvested to assure the finest quality available.
