Ooba is a medium grained upland rice cultivar with red kernels. Developed in Hungary in the early 60s it is high in protein (11%). Plants reach 3.5 foot and have a possibility for lodging. Ooba began flowering 55 days after from transplanting in late May with harvest starting 97 days from transplanting. Our original seed stock is from Indiana seedsman John Sherck.

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.
