I have talked about the cultivation of rice in the Low Country of South Carolina and Georgia. The cotton trade however, was just as interesting. In the Low Country, Sea Island Cotton, more commonly known as Long Staple Cotton, had also been the primary commodity of the Sea Islands. Sea Island Cotton was able to be cultivated in these areas because the crops thrived in light, sandy, and saltwater lands. These crops also expanded the economic success of the area because of the excellent prices they brought to the world market.
