Kzul Shali was accepted into the USDA' germplasm collection in 1962 from Uzbekistan. Our original stock is from Indiana seedsman John Sherck who describes Kzul Shali as such:

"The plants began flowering 47 days from transplanting in late May, with an early harvest on August 14th (84 days) and a later harvest 1 week later. While the yield is not high at 4 pounds per 100 square foot, the earliness makes this variety attractive to growers in more northerly latitudes with short summers. The plants reached a height of 2 1/2 foot and had minimal issues with lodging."


Available upon successful 2021 fall harvest

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.
