2007 Pima

Here is a shot of my Pima of 2007. I planted 12 seeds, but only 3 came up. One plant grew to over six feet tall! I have started hand ginning it and so far I have a basket full of fluffy fiber.

Did you scarify the seeds? It makes a big difference in germination rate - you can just file away a teeny portion of the black seed coat, but you have to be sure that you've gone all the way through. Use sandpaper or a file. You might also like to soak overnight before planting.

I do and I soak them as well.
