The new lemon has lots of Chlorophyll on it. First priming does as well. Newbies are not used to seeing leaf as growers are. All we are used to is shredded tobacco. I am on my 4th year ordering leaf. Taste is all based on the type of seed soil and growing conditions. Carolina ribbon is just a blending tobacco. I have bought it when able to get pipe tobacco to Canada.

As a matter of tradition, I give family members a quart jar of Wild Rice every Christmas. There are several different types and grades of Wild Rice on the market. Cultivated, usually grown in California and Minnesota. "Wild" (ironically), which mainly grows in upper Minnesota and southern Southern Ontario but peppered throughout Manitoba and Saskatchewan, "Wood parched", "hand winnowed", etc. etc.

Yesterday while wild rice shopping, I found some "All Natural Ojibwa wild rice" from a company located in Massachusetts. Not only did I not know the Ojibwa tribe lived in Massachusetts, but I certainly didn't know they grew wild rice there.

Branding is a wonderful thing, often misleading, but wonderful none the less.

Virginia ie Canadian is the same as strawberry's ours are so much sweeter than the California kind. They are still strawberries each region produces quality fruit but tastes are different its all according to what you are used too. I have smoked some of the best Virginia in the world and thanks to you and Big continue to do so.

Sounds like the "all natural Cuban Corojo 99 tobacco" I grow in my yard. (I bought my beautiful wood and hide, Ojibwa snowshoes in northern Minnesota--almost in Canada, but not Massachusetts. But they could have been made in Shanghai, from Jichimu wood and human skin. It's hard to know for sure.)

Re: green mold spots on tobacco leaves

It in reference probably just chlorophyll. Mold is usually white and fuzzy generally speaking.

I just opened a bag of that stuff now and its tasty just finishing a pound of it. Its all good and it was this year that it aged in the bags and the green has changed colour.

I've seen the green. It's chlorophyll as Burge had said.
Some leaves you can flatten-out and see the line from the racks.

It disappears after it ages a bit. The taste is better after aging.
