The tobacco plants are harvested for cigars two to three times yearly at Tabacalera Esteli. It takes about 80 to 90 days for a tobacco plant to fully develop from a small seed into tall plants ready for picking. The tobacco fields are planted with seedlings a few weeks apart so that the harvest is spread out throughout several months. This allows for careful and precise supervision of the crop and the subsequent hand selecting and picking of the leaves.
Every step is carefully supervised to make sure that the tobacco plants grow healthy.
