This tobacco has shorter and smaller leaves than the varieties grown in the eastern portion of the island, but its superior quality, and the comparatively limited region in which it grows, gives it an almost fabulous value. A single acre in the Vuelta Abajo district has been known to yield a crop to the value of $3,000.
