I am looking for seeds for naturally rust colored cotton plants. They are known as Ixicaco in Guatemala, where they are found. Do you carry these seeds?

Try the organization Native Seeds/SEARCH (2509 N. Campbell Ave., #325, Tucson, AZ 85719; ph# 520-327-9123). They sell a large selection of traditional crops used by native peoples throughout the Southwest U.S. and northern Mexico. They sell a cotton called 'Peruvian Brown Cotton' that is described as ranging in color from red-brown to olive green. Be sure to confirm that the variety will mature in your growing season.
