Cigar Seed

Tobacco plants can grow four feet tall, but the seed is small like a grain of sand, so it was easy for Cuban cigar manufacturers to transport/transplant Cuban seed elsewhere; as a result, some non-Cuban cigar brands use Cuban seed creating a generic plant whose ancestors come from Cuba. Naturally it took many years to cultivate a good non-Cuban cigar in other climates, but the success of the non- Cuban cigar was due to the expertise of the cigar maker.
