Gossypium hirsutum. Grown by the Pimans for food and fiber until 1900. Padre Kino noted the extensive cotton fields and use of the fiber for weaving into clothing and blankets. This variety, related to Hopi cotton, was maintained by the Field Station in Sacaton, Arizona, for many years under the name Sacaton Aboriginal. Pimans planted cotton "when the mesquite began to leaf out." From our Seed Bank Collection.
