Soon after Kentucky was explored, it was discovered that its rich soil was well adapted for the production of the largest varieties of tobacco as well as the finest grades of cutting leaf. From the first crops planted, the Kentucky tobacco plantation held a superior reputation for maintaining a high quality of tobacco. As a cut-tobacco, the Kentucky-leaf was esteemed to be popular in the exportation to all parts of Europe. Historically, Kentucky planters have had a good stand of plants which grow rapidly.
