FLUE CURED Tobacco one of our best quality products, and we provide it for our costumers allover the globe.
Tobacco is typically cured in three different ways: air-cured, fire-cured, and flue-cured. Each curing method produces a tobacco product that can be distinguished by its nicotine content as well as its fragrance. Flue cured tobacco accounts for 90% of the tobacco grown in the United States each year, out of all the curing methods.
Long and Illustrious History
Since 1612, cigarette smoking has been a part of American culture. Tobacco production has been a staple of Virginia’s economy, as well as that of other states in the region, for 400 years, and Virginia is only second to North Carolina in terms of tobacco production in the United States.
For the most part, in the 1960s, the externally-fed fire box method of flue-curing was changed to a gas-fueled device, which takes much less time to complete, usually around 7-8 days to cure, as opposed to the air-cured method, which takes around 4 to 8 weeks.
