Yellow Twist Bud Tobacco

A Burley-type of tobacco, the plants are sturdy with the flower heads reaching over seven feet in height. The leaves are heavy and large, averaging twelve inches wide by twenty inches long, yellow at maturity, and air-cures easily.

Historically, 'Yellow Twist Bud' was grown in Kentucky, Missouri, and Maryland. However it does excellent and readily ripens in the field even in Oregon.

It was primarily grown as an export variety but used as a multipurpose tobacco for plug, cigarette and pipe blending, and cigar filler. An old, pre-1880 variety. 

My stock is from the USDA accession number PI 552784.
