Corojo

The most famous variety of Cuban-seed tobacco. Corojo seed was first developed in the 1930s at the El Corojo plantation outside San Juan y Martinez, Cuba. The leaf was used to wrap Cuba’s finest cigars. Descendents of the seed are now grown in Central America and the Caribbean, but Cuba no longer grows Corojo.
