The Tabernacle Havana Seed CT No. 142
The Havanna Seed CT is a completely different animal and seed variety from broadleaf, yet it is grown in the same region of Connecticut. So it shares the same sandy loam soil of the [Connecticut] River Valley. The plants are very different. Broadleaf is a much larger leaf, thicker cellular walls and a larger vein structure. This makes it more durable in fermentation piles. There is a tremendous amount of oil on the leaf but it doesn’t compare to the amount of grasa (fat of the leaf) of the Havana Seed. Havana Seed Connecticut has a much narrower shape, less vein structure, thinner, yet it has a tremendous amount of grasa. This is what makes it sooo special and at the same time so difficult and time-consuming to ferment.
