Szegedi Szakallas Paddy Rice
(Oryza sativa); Heritage; Minimum 50 seeds
Szegedi Szakallas is a lowland rice cultivar developed in the early 1960s in Hungary. Its awned medium grains contains 9.5% protein and are classified as intermediate in amylose content at 20%. Panicles flower roughly 52 days after transplanting. While a paddy rice, we grow Szegedi Szakallas under upland conditions on our southeast Michigan homestead.
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.
