140 days--Here's a short-stapled cotton in varying shades of green. The color range runs the gamut from light green to dull olive-green. Flowers run pink to yellow. A few white-stapled plants will be seen as well. Foundation seed received from a Mississippi customer, David Kennedy.

Getting lots of fiber to spin

What are the pros? Great novelty crop

What are the cons? none

Review:

The seed packet contained at least three different colors of cotton with the seeds still inside so it was a nice preview of the fiber colors I might get from my crop. I am starting to pick the first few bolls as they open (first of September), and apparently I planted seeds from just one color. Fairly uniform soft medium green color. I hope to learn how to spin this fall and make a small bag or tea cozey or trivet with the first crop. Planted eleven, seven sprouted and five made it to maturity. This might be more of a commentary on the care and attention I took to planting than it is on the inherent vigor of this variety. We had a very hot humid summer in Mid-Missouri and the weather suited the cotton just fine. Thinking of growing lots more next year and probably some brown cotton as well. They grow well in soil amended with what was mucked up from the chicken coop floor. I gave it a low rate for early maturity because cotton by nature is a long-season crop.

What are the pros? Fun to grow

What are the cons? -

Review:

Living in the "Garden State" where there is a produce stand on every corner I wanted to try something different in my garden this year and thought cotton would be fun. I'm happy to say that even after a cool wet Spring my cotton plants did well! They were much smaller then I expected, but with only 5 plants I have quite a bountiful cotton harvest. My family, friends and neighbors have all enjoyed watching them grow and now the big question... what to do with all my cotton?

What are the pros? Bountiful and beautiful

What are the cons? Not all seeds germinated

Review:

I had never grown cotton before but wanted to try just to show my kids where their clothes originate from. I was astounded by how beautiful the plant was and how many cotton pods I was able to obtain just from one plant. These pods contain tons of seeds and the color of the cotton itself is a beautiful shade of olive green. The harvest period is longer than any other plant I have seen but when it's time, it's totally worth the wait! I'm growing this again this year. Most of the seeds germinated and if I had to gauge by percentage I would go with 80% germinated successfully.
