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.

Organic Duborskian Rice

Planting Method: Transplant Only

When to sow: Start indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting late May when the soil has warmed up.

Seed Depth: 1/2 inch       Days to Germination: 6 days at 75°F 

Sowing and seedling care: Sow 2 seeds per cell thinned to 1. More fertility = taller plants = more seed.

When to transplant: They can tolerate a light frost but best to plant as close to the last frost date as possible. The plants will reach 20”-24” high and have numerous tillers. Keep well weeded during early growth stage to give the tillers plenty of room to spread.

Transplant Spacing: 1 foot     Sun Needs: Full

Days to Harvest: 105

Height: 2-3 feet (numerous tillers)

Harvest: Harvest as heads dry down but before they drop seeds or get moldy. Typically the harvest ranges from late August through September. One 100′ row of rice will yield 6 to 10 pounds of grain.
