    Re: Tobacco Varieties Before Columbus

    Burge,
    The Wikipedia article is lengthy and detailed. A lot of info there. I would be cautious about anything that sounds truly definitive on the topic of cigars. As you know, opinions vary widely on most aspects of cigars--witness this forum. And anyone can edit a Wikipedia article, inserting his or her own favorite interpretation. (e.g. Stating that cigar binders are made from ligero leaf is clearly an odd stance.)

    But it's a good read.

    Bob

    Re: Tobacco Varieties Before Columbus

    I did some reading that suggested that Spain had a influence on North American tobacco development and may had some help via the coffee trade. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_tobacco. If you read on the history of coffee the aribica beans were developed by the ottoman Empire. Turkish tobacco would be a interesting read.
