'Connecticut Broadleaf', produces large, fine-grade leaves that are used for cigar wrappers. The lower grade leaves on the plants are used for cigar filler, blending and binder leaves. The leaves average about thirteen inches in width by twenty-six inches in length, are broad, strong, thin, elastic, silky, have small fibers, a sweetish taste, and cure light in color.

Also known as 'East Hartford Broadleaf' and documented as being selected from 'Connecticut Seedleaf'.[1,2] It was historically grown in the Connecticut Valley, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin Minnesota, and to a slight extent in Indiana and Illinois.[2] Our stock originated from the collection of David Pendergrass of Tennessee from USDA accession number PI 552619.

Tobacco plants are very interesting, ornamental, and have uses apart from consumption. This section of the website is intended for the historical and informational purposes of thinking adults. Anyone who has been raised since the turn of the 20th century already knows that tobacco can be addictive and can contribute to various medical ailments. If you do not smoke, it would seem illogical to start. We in no way encourage people to use any form of tobacco product. Informational References:
