Connecticut shade tobacco

Connecticut shade tobacco


Windsor Locks, Connecticut (CT), US
Growing Connecticut shade tobacco started in 1900. Growing shade tobacco involves creating large tents to cover the growing tobacco with a synthetic fabric. Under the tents the sunlight is diffused and the air is humid which produces a thinner and lighter tobacco. This tobacco is used primarily for binders and wrappers for premium cigars
