using css to style html table

I have this html example where i have a table.

I'm using css to set the alternating row of the even rows to a green color.
This sample works fine.

color alternating even rows example

Is there a way to say to this?:

Set the alterating rows (even rows) of column 2 of my table to this color background-color: #44b268;

So my table should look like this. I drew this in excel so disregard the borders on this picture.
I'm only interested in the background color:

You can do it this way :

<style type="text/css">
      table {
            width:100%;
            border-collapse:collapse;
      }

      table tr:nth-child(even) td:nth-child(2){
            background: #red;
      }

</style>

<table>
      <tr><td>Text</td><td>Text</td><td>Text</td><td>Text</td></tr>
      <tr><td>Text</td><td>Text</td><td>Text</td><td>Text</td></tr>
      <tr><td>Text</td><td>Text</td><td>Text</td><td>Text</td></tr>
      <tr><td>Text</td><td>Text</td><td>Text</td><td>Text</td></tr>
</table>
