'Bonanza' is a flue-cured type of tobacco historically used for cigarette and pipe blends. A post-1880 introduction, it was very popular with manufacturers. It was bred as a stabilized cross between 'White Burley' and 'Yellow Orinoco' and said to possess the qualities of both parents. These traits include hardiness tougher than the 'White Burley' and more porous than 'Yellow Orinoco'. Our seed stock originated from USDA accession number PI 552300.
