Young tobacco plants

Young tobacco plants


Estelí, Nicaragua (NI)
I know this isn't a very exciting street view but it's part of the process in making cigars.

Tobacco has to grow for months under careful supervision until it reaches 5-6 feet. Usually tobacco grown in a field, uncovered, means the tobacco will be selected for the filler or binder of the cigar. Wrappers are grown under cover to shield from the sun. Leaves are then harvested with different parts of the plant going to different parts of a cigar.
