The Many Names Of Fronto Leaf

Fronto Leaf actually has many street names including: Fanta Leaf, Franta Leaf, Funta Leaf, Frunta Leaf, Grabba Leaf, Funnels, Red Rose, and Red Herring (just to name a few.)  What it is called will really vary according to who you are talking to and where they are from, but ‘Fronto Leaf’ and ‘Grabba Leaf’ are the most commonly used terms.

The following characteristics are typical of a quality fronto leaf:

  • Fronto, Fanta, Funta and any other name that starts with the letter ‘F’ is usually in reference to a dark, wrapper grade tobacco leaf.  Actual variety / strain does not matter, even though certain varieties have certainly become more popular than others over the years.
  • Wrapper grade fronto leaves should have very little to no damage since they are being used for ‘wrapper’.  An experienced fronto leaf user knows that they can cut around damaged areas and still use the best parts of a compromised leaf.  No fronto leaf has to go to waste! Most Popular Choices: QB52 Fronto Leaf, CT Fronto Leaf
  • The most popular type of fronto leaf is typically dark and has a medium thickness / weight to the leaf, but are still not too thick to be used as wrapper.  This can be a challenge to attain the perfect fronto leaf because darkness and thickness usually go hand in hand.  The perfect fronto leaf for wrapping is actually a happy medium between darkness and thickness.
  • Grabba Leaf, Hot Grabba Leaf, or Red Rose are names that refer to a dark and thick type of fronto leaf that is usually crushed and blended. Most Popular Choice: Dark Fire Cured
  • Thicker and darker varieties of fronto leaf (like Grabba and Red Rose) are extremely popular in Jamaica and throughout the Caribbean islands.
  • In the USA the thinner fronto leaves are more popular for use as ‘wrapper’.  However both are generally used in either market.

How To Use Fronto Leaf For Wraps or Grabba? Here Are Some Guidelines To Follow:

  • The process will be the same whether you have purchased a pre-packaged Fronto Leaf or you took advantage of wholesale pricing by purchasing Fronto Leaf by the pound. You begin by opening the bag.
  • Before you go much further, make sure your Fronto Leaf has a good moisture level. If your leaf is dry and brittle (not easily pliable), you risk damage if you handle it in this state. To bring a dry leaf back to life, just mist it with water and seal it back up in the package until it absorbs enough moisture to regain pliability.  If the leaf ends up getting overly moist just leave it out to dry in the open air until it is just right.
  • You can cut wraps out of the leaf alongside the veins.  Some people like to leave the veins in one side of the wrap to add an element of rigidity.
  • If you are using Fronto Leaf as Grabba Leaf, let the leaf air dry and then crush it up to smoke as needed.
