Davis Green CottonH005
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 produce more green color than our crop from Patagonia.) Boil the fibers (usually after weaving) to bring out the color … additional washings will darken the color further. From our Seed Bank Collection.
- A warm season crop that requires hot weather.
- Approx. 2g/20 seeds per packet.
