Most dip and chew is made of Burley.

Here's a link to a type used for chew, snuff etc.

I really like Yellow Orinoco. Quite a sweet chew. When cured and aged a bit, the light auburn leaves are tasty fellers.

Howdy All,

Do you only use one variety in making chew? My son is going to grow some Yellow Orinoco for chewing tobacco and we are starting seeds today.

Thanx, Chuck.

Hey Chuck :P

I have used several varieties such as Havana, Perique etc. I haven't noticed any difference in the actual chew per say. The thing I liked about Yellow Orinoco is that the leaf is real thick. This allows it to really absorb a lot of sauce. This is where it probably gets its reputation for being sweet. The other nice thing about it is that you can add a leaf or two to your cigar blend! One thing I don't like about it is that's its the only variety that I ever had mold issues with. I think its because as it cures the leaves curl up real tight upon themselves and because they are thick they really hold onto the moisture. When curing, give them some extra space and air circulation.

See Ya.. Randy B

Howdy Randy,

Thanks for all the info! I'll have to keep that in mind come curing time. I noticed that that a couple of varieties of havana are mentioned for use in the chewing category. We'll have to see how things go! Thanks Again! Chuck.
