Curing

After the harvest, the tobacco is cured. This can be done in different ways:

  • Air-cured
    The tobacco is hung in open barns in order to dry.
  • Sun-cured
    The tobacco is hung out in the sun to cure.
  • Flue-cured
    The tobacco is hung in a closed barn, in which pipes are installed through which hot air is blown.
  • Fire-cured
    The tobacco is hung in a barn and is cured by a smouldering fire.
