Classified as a primitive variety, this is the original Orinoco imported from Java, Indonesia in 1927. It grows to 6 feet in height and matures in 60 days after transplant. The leaves are long and narrow growing to over 24″ by 10″ wide and produce a flavorful smoke. It has a very high nicotine content of any tobacco, so use with caution and use for blending only. It makes a good blend to mix with low nicotine tobaccos like Virginia Gold or Turkish.
Used for pipes.
