Our Picaroon Binder grade tobacco, a product of Tennessee and Kentucky, ranges in color from dark gold to chocolate brown. Of all of our air cured varieties, the Picaroon Fanta Leaf is our darkest and strongest flavor. Veins on these leaves are somewhat more pronounced than on our other varieties.
Air cured tobacco is generally cured in open or exposed barns for one to two months at a time. Thanks to this curing process, these leaves have a distinctive, pleasing aroma. Our Picaroon Fanta Leaf is a ‘dark air cured tobacco’ used in many different applications.
As with all of our retail sales, these leaves are unbound and separated from each other. If you’d prefer your order to be untouched and bound together in ‘hands’ by the farmer, we’re happy to accommodate you. Just let us know. Large and wholesale orders are shipped in bound ‘hands’ of tobacco.
