The simplest component of the catechin complex, (+)-catechin, is formed in the cotyledons and rootlets from the very first days of the development of cotton seed. This component accumulates both in the light and in the dark. As the plant grows, catechins gradually disappear from the leaves of the cotton plant and flavonols remain. Catechins and gallocatechins are formed in the boll carpels and the bark of the roots and stems.
