Tobacco is not a difficult plant to manage. It's easy to grow and a single plant can often produce enough seeds to cover an entire field. The true art comes in the drying, curing and rolling of the tobacco into cigars, cigarettes and chewing tobacco. It is the Tobacconist who decides if the leaves will be dried in the heat of the sun or the cool of the air, when to rotate the leaves as they ferment to ensure a uniform flavor and the dozens of other miniscule considerations that must be taken into account before a fine cigar can be made. In fact, a top-quality Tobacconist can dramatically increase a colony's tobacco crop's profitability, making the difference between fiscal catastrophe and comfortable success.
