Corojo vs Habano

I have been looking for the differencesimilarity between them. Some places use the term interchangeably, while others seem to use corojo as a sub-set of habano. As in Habano Corojo.

Is Corojo a certain strain of Habano type leaves? Same with Criollo? Any info from knowledgeable folks is appreciated.

    The term "habano" is just another name for "cuban-seed". Cuban seed tobacco can be of many different strains, including corojo, criollo, havana 2000, etc. They all have different characteristics and flavors, but they're all categorized as habano.

    What Wayne said. Habano just means seed of Cuban descent. Corojo is one of the more popular Cuban seeds. Yay agriculture.
