Little Crittenden is a broad leaf cultivar having long leaves with considerable crinkle. The leaves
are attached to medium size stalks in a semi-erect position; but are not standup type. The cultivar
is grown primarily as a fire-cured (types 22 and 29) cultivar for domestic (snuff, chewing, filler, and
pipe) use. It is also and excellent air-cured (type 36) cultivar. At the Donald Cowherd Farm in
Logan Co. in 2001 Little Crittenden yielded 636 lb/a lugs, 978 seconds, 1672 leaf & 0 green tobacco
for a total of 3286 lb/a making it the 9th highest yielding variety in the test. If you remove the green
tobacco from other varieties in the test, Little Crittenden moves to the 5th highest overall.
