I was Searching the web for a long time and came across this product called Cuthof Tobacco Cutting kit. It is at a price of $189.95 which i thought was rediculous so i saw a picture of it and thought i could make those things. Basically all you need is a pasta shredder and make a block device thing haha you can see it all in the picture to the left. But if you want to buy it follow this link to the site http://www.virtualseeds.com/home-garden-main.html .

You Dont need a Cureing facility!

Just a day ago i was talkin to my friend and he said that when he was down south most of his friends who lived in the city would just hang the tobacco in the garage and let it sit for a while until it was brown and then smoke it right there. I Havent yet been able to try this because my plants are just now medium height but if anyone tries it please leave a comment and tell me how it worked.

Best Place To Buy Seeds

I Found that http://www.tobaccoseed.co.uk/ is the best place to buy tobacco seeds and are cheap and come in 2-3 days and they ship everywhere.

Seed beginnings.

Start by sprinkling the tobacco seeds onto the surface of seed starting mix and lightly water in. Do not cover the seed with any soil as they need light for germination and covering can slow down germination time or if covered too deeply by dirt the seed won't germinate at all, watering in lightly is all that is needed. Use a Mist Spray The best method for the beggining. I used the Burpee Growing System So you never have to water it. There is a picture of the Burpee Growing System all the way down at the bottom of this page

Sun Cureing

Sun Curing

Oriental tobaccos are sun-cured. No barn, nothing but the sun! The tobacco goes out very yellow and keeps all its sugar content. It is generally a very short tobacco. Leaves are 2 or 3 inches large. The taste is sweet. This tobacco is used for blond cigarette, pipe and short filler cigars. The main producers are Greece, Turkey, and Bulgaria. All the countries around these three are also growing oriental tobacco.--- Found this on Another site

Some Methods for Cureing

1.Age the tobacco leaves by allowing them to dry. This process allows the carotenoids in the leaf to oxidize and degrade, producing a smoother more aromatic flavor. There are primarily four methods to accomplish the aging of tobacco: air-curing, fire-curing, flue-curing and sun-curing.

Step 2. Air-cure tobacco by hanging the leaves in a ventilated barn until they have no sugar remaining. This usually occurs by the time they have turned a light to medium brown.

Step 3. Fire-cure tobacco by setting it out on racks over a wood-fueled fire. This method is used mostly for pipe blend tobacco because the type of wood used for the fire influences the flavor.

Step 4.Flue-cure tobacco by hanging it in a closed barn. Pipes from radiators or some other source supply controlled heat to the leaves until the starch is converted to sugar and the leaves turn yellow-orange.

Step 5. Sun-cure tobacco by setting it on racks in the sun for between 12 and 30 days. This method is similar to flue-curing and will produce a sweeter tobacco.-- Seems to be the Quickest and easiest if you have the room.
