OverviewProprietary Organic Heirloom Kokuho Rose® brand Japanese style – 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”. Milled white, with a delicate light floral flavor and a naturally slightly sweet afternote, it will stimulate your palate without being overpowering. Touted by gourmets as the perfect steamed table rice, its tender and gently sticky texture makes it similarly outstanding for sushi. Versatile and appropriate 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.)
