Leaves are up to 24" long and 12" to 14" wide. It yields 3-4 ounces of leaf per plant and has good disease resistance. The leaves turn light yellow as it ripens in about 65 days after transplanting. It is easy to air cure and dries a bright golden yellow. It is mild to smoke and is an excellent choice for a cigarette tobacco or in pipe and cigarette blends.
