Yukihikari Lowland Rice
(Oryza sativa); Landrace; Awnless; 120 days
Yukihikari loosely translates as "light snow" and heralds its tolerance for the colder season of its native Hokkaido Japan. A short grain brown glutinous rice, it is known for its wonderful rich flavor and intense aromatic qualities Some studies indicate Yukihikari is tolerated by people with allergies.
Considered a lowland rice, we grow Yukihikari as an upland rice in our wetter part of the garden.
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.
