Do you mean what are cotton bolls? Cotton boll is the name of the rounded seed pod of the cotton plant. The fibres harvested for cotton develop within the boll and are part of it.

When do organic cotton farmers harvest cotton?

The point when cotton bolls fully open and ripen is the time when organic cotton farmers harvest cotton. The picking must be done after morning dews dry since moistened or wetted bolls will be susceptible to fungus, whose treatment is a challenge organically and non-organically. It needs to be done timely since unripe bolls will not absorb dye and ripened bolls will suffer quality consequences of simultaneous challenges from environmental dew, dust and insect honeydew.
