Davis Green Cotton

H005

Gossypium hirsutum x G. barbadense.  An intentional cross between Pima cotton and a Louisiana green cotton, selected by Phreadde Davis in Albuquerque to create a richer color and longer fiber. The lint color is variable, sometimes pale green, olive, blue-green, or brown.   It is said to produce a longer fiber than most green cottons. Warmer weather and more mature plants produce a darker green fiber.  (Our growout in Tucson produced more green color than our crop from Patagonia.)  Boil the fibers (usually after weaving) to bring out the color … additional washings will deepen the color further.  From our Seed Bank Collection.
