Atlantic States Cotton

ATLANTIC STATES COTTON
A type of American cotton which changes colour faster when left in the field than western cotton. It takes on a bluish cast, and is often spotted or tinged if grown on a red-clay soil, no doubt due, in part, to the rainfall being greater in the Eastern States than in the South-west, during the gathering season.
