Gossypium herbaceum, commonly known as the cotton of the Levant, [1] is a kind of cotton from the semi-arid regions of sub-Saharan Africa and Arabia, where it still grows in the wild as a living shrub .

3 seeds - soak the seeds for 48 hours in the water, sowing at 20/25 ° C - non -rustic - deliverable than in France.

G. Herbaceum a high stems which grow from 60 to 180 centimeters (2 to 6 feet) high with wide and hairy leaves. Their Flowers are small and yellow with a purple center. The present plant of extrafloral nectaries [2] (Calyculaux nectaries, found on the receptacle, near the base of Calyculus ).

At maturity and in hot weather, the floral capsule will burst and expose the cotton surrounding the seeds. The cotton produced by this plant is short, about 5 centimeters (2 in) long and is firmly attached to the seed, which is covered with hairy down. Cotton fibers grow from the surface of the seeds and can be separated from them by hand or mechanically; Long fibers are called plush. Cotton fibers are made up of Cellulose almost pure. The planned yield is 340 kilograms per hectare (300 pounds per acre). [3]

The main use of cotton fiber is to produce textiles for clothing. The fibers are spun in Fils and these are woven in tissue , at the farm or at home or in factories. Cotton as a fabric is highly appreciated for its comfortable, breathable properties, its resistance [ précision nécessaire ] and also because it is stacked easily.

In Levant , the seeds of Gossypium Herbaceum were also used for human and animal food or oil extraction. Cotton seeds, containing up to 20 % oil and 20 % protein, are potentially very rich for human or animal food . However, small glands present in all the plant organs of the species Gossypium , with the exception of roots, and particularly abundant in seeds, contain toxic chemicals, in particular Compound Polyphenolique Gossypol. Gossypol is very toxic to animals and is an element of the direct defense system of plants against herbivorous arthropods. It can cause severe growth and development disorders in humans as well as in domestic animals, especially monogastric animals, while polygastrics are more or less tolerant. For this reason, the use of oil or whole seeds for human consumption depends on a means of elimination of gossypol, heating or other treatment. Gossypol extracted from cotton seeds has potential use like male contraceptive but can cause an irreversible infer tility after repeated use. In studies on laboratory rats , it was capable of Stop pregnancies Early . [3] [4]
