  1. gossypium thurberi

    Gossypium thurberi, commonly known as Thurber's cotton, is a wild perennial species of cotton plant native to Arizona and Northwestern Mexico. It belongs to the Malvaceae family. Unlike common cotton varieties used for commercial cotton production, Thurber's cotton produces a smaller amount of cotton with less staple length. This makes it less suitable for commercial cultivation. However, it is often used in breeding and genetic studies due to its natural resistance to many cotton pests and diseases.
