Kon Suito Upland Rice
(Oryza sativa); Upland variety; Awnless
Kon Suito is an awnless, short grained brown rice variety from Mongolia. Its plants reach 48 inches, flowering at 53 days from transplanting, harvestable at 87 days. Kon Suito can experience minor lodging after heavy rains during grain fill.
Our seed stock is from John Sherck of Sherck Seeds who reports Kon Suito's smooth texture and slightly nutty taste makes it well-suited in soup, pilaf, or even as a breakfast cereal.
This variety will not be available until the Fall of 2021.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Keep in mind, rice seed is hulled. Rice is planted in its hull but after harvest, that hull must be removed before eating. De-hulling rice is not easily achieved by hand, requiring mechanical assistance such as the Brill De-huller or an electric de-huller.
