Frequently Asked Questions: Cigar Plant Anatomy

 
Cigar Plant Anatomy


While different seed varietals like Corojo and Criollo may have different names and leaf level classifications (see our Academic Curriculum for details), there are some general characteristics and principles that apply to all dark air-cured / cigar tobacco plants. Ligero leaves at the top of the plant are fuller-flavored, thicker, darker and often stronger because they get the most sun at the top of the plant. Middle level leaves, called Viso, are more medium-bodied, medium thickness and well rounded in flavor. Leaves at the bottom of the plant are called Volado and they are known for having excellent burning characteristics but not for their flavor, body or strength.
