This tobacco is the same as the Bright Leaf, but in threshed form.
Whole Leaf Tobacco offers a special Flue Cured tobacco that is threshed (or stripped). This threshed tobacco is whole leaf that has had the mid-rib removed. Because of the Flue Cure process, this tobacco is high in sugar content at 17% and the nicotine content level is 2.7%. This tobacco can be smoked without blending or casing and delivers a wonderful flavor with the least amount of effort. Whole Leaf Tobacco sells RD grade threshed tobacco.
The Whole Leaf Tobacco threshing process is done mechanically, so you will find remnants of the mid-rib mixed in. The size of individual strips of Threshed Tobacco is roughly 2 inches x 4 inches.
According to federal law, this product quantity must meet a minimum of 10 lbs. 1oz. in order to be sold. We offer this product in 5 kilo (11+lbs.) per bag.
