'Little Dutch' tobacco plants grow to about three feet in height. It is very early maturing and because of its compact size, is a good choice for container gardening. Its leaves are very long and narrow and once properly cured and fermented, have a distinctive, sweet aroma said to resemble 'Yara' tobacco grown in Eastern Cuba.
Primarily used in pipe blends and as binders and fillers for cigars. 'Little Dutch' was once very popular in the Miami Valley of Ohio, and to a limited extent in Pennsylvania, but has long been dropped from commercial production.
This pre-1880 variety was collected as a farmer selection from the Miamisburg, Ohio area but is said to have been developed in Germany. Originated from USDA accession number PI 551282.
