Harvested cotton bolls. Raw, uncleaned cotton fibres after harvest. The white fibres, known as lint, are produced in the fruit (bolls) of the cotton plant (Gossypium hirsutum). When ripe, the bolls burst open to reveal the lint, which is used as a raw material in the production of cotton cloth. Photographed in Georgia, USA.
