Hi All

I'm getting ready to order seeds, last year I grew just Florida Sumatra it was my first year and things went good. I've rolled some cigars both long and short filler with decent results. My question for the more experienced growers here are what varieties would you all suggest for a stronger tasting smoke. Something that would make a good binder and or filler that had some punch. I plan to use the Florida Sum. as a wrapper. Also I want to ask what type of glue other cigar rollers have been using, I've been using Knox gelatine unflavored at about 3 to 5 % in warm water with good results but would like to hear from others.

Thanks Vonhusaberg

Pectin and tapioca seem to be near top of the list around here

Both are good to use RC, I prefer Tragacanth gum.(old school) All three stand the humidor test of time.
