Cotton

During the Territorial Period, long staple cotton, especially a variety known as Sea Island cotton, commanded high prices from fine fabric makers. The prized crop along the southeastern coastline of the United States was important in Northeast Florida from 1790 to 1825, until high sugar prices led sugar to replace cotton as a cash crop.
