OverviewProprietary Organic Heirloom Whole Grain Brown Kokuho Rose® brand – medium grain – rice grown exclusively on Koda Farms since the 1950s. Unlike modern varieties, Kokuho Rose is a true heirloom, possessing hallmarks that stand in stark contrast to those considered desirable in industrial scale farming. In essence, Kokuho Rose is slow to mature, low in yield, and tall in stature – characteristics adding significant effort to its production. Preserving this proprietary strain of rice requires a three year commitment merely to produce the seed, which Koda Farms fulfills by maintaining their private seed nurseries on site. A perfect expression of the land it was specifically bred to thrive upon, Kokuho Rose rice is considered to be “au terroir”. Whole grain with bran layer intact, the genmai (Japanese for “brown rice”) is complex and subtle, light floral flavor with a naturally slightly sweet afternote. Tender texture, but more substantial than white KR. Perfect for table rice, sushi, as well as other traditional medium grain preparations which depend on a similar starch profile such as Italian risotto and Spanish paella. Kokuho Rose averages less than 2% broken kernels. (USDA industry standard allows up to 4% broken kernels.)
