115 days from transplant to harvest Oryza sativa

HEIRLOOM If we can grow rice, you can, too! Even in short seasons, even without a patty and it's remarkably simple.

Organic Duborskian Rice is a Russian heirloom short-grain upland rice, also called dryland rice, meaning it thrives in average garden conditions. Indeed, she would perish in a classic rice patty. We were astonished in 2016, the driest season on record in our county, to witness Duborskian rice absolutely flourish, undaunted.

Organic Duborskian Rice

115 days from transplant to harvest Oryza sativa

Description

HEIRLOOM If we can grow rice, you can, too! Even in short seasons, even without a patty and it’s remarkably simple.

The Duborskians were 19th-century communal agriculturalists in Russia, regionally adapting many crops to their short seasons. We will always be thankful for them and we’re especially grateful for Roberta Bailey of Seven Tree Farm in Maine, who selected Duborskian rice in central Maine for years before gifting us our original seed stock in 2014.

Organic Duborskian Rice is a short-grain upland rice, also called dryland rice, meaning it thrives in average garden conditions. Indeed, she would perish in a classic rice patty. We were astonished in 2016, the driest season on record in our county, to witness Duborskian rice absolutely flourish, undaunted.

With about ten inches between plants, each grain of rice will send up an abundance of stalks (tillers) with gorgeous mint-green seed heads (panicles) emerging in July.

One 100′ row of rice will yield 6 to 10 pounds of grain.
