Primanychskij Upland Rice
(Oryza sativa); Upland variety; Awned;
Russian cultivar Primanychskij produces large, brown rice kernels that have short awns. Its plants reach 4 feet and tiller productively. Primanychskij's height increases its potential to lodge during grain fill.
Our seed stock came from John Scherck of Sherck Seeds.
John's culinary assessment of Primanychskij:
"I dehulled 460 grams of Primanychskij which yielded 344 grams of rice (2 cups worth). Next I pearled the rice (removing 90% of the bran) using a Japanese kitchen top pearling machine. I cooked the rice up as as regular rice (not as sticky) and the result was delicious. This variety is likely more of a “medium grain” type as it was semi-sticky but held its shape. I utilized the rice the second day as “fried rice”. The result was excellent."
