Krme Upland Rice
(Oryza sativa); Upland
A variety with origins in Russia or Serbia, Krme's very short plants (~24 inches) produce awnless, short grain brown rice harvestable at about the 90 day mark from transplanting.
Our stock seed is from John Sherck of Sherck Seeds who received his from Petr Vorbil of the Czech Republic. A potential translation of "krme" is "little pigs" which may reflect the commonality of the variety.
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.
