The Cigar Wrapper Colour

Wrappers range from light tan to dark brown; however, one may find an occasional offbeat green wrapper. All leaves are originally green, but the aging process is what brings the exterior its chocolate hue.

Furthermore, each shade is associated with a type, the name of which being principally determined by the region from which the seed originated, where it was actually grown and how. All in all, there are over 50 named wrapper leaves; many are mixes or “tweeners” of two different origins. Sometimes such hybrids are named because the seed was from one region but cultivated in another, such as an Ecuadorian Connecticut.

Enjoy!
