This rice is extremely similar to Kokuho Rose®, in that it is the same fatness, however it’s just a little less sticky, a little less sweet, and a little less expensive.
Far superior to other Calroses, Kokuho is grown in the U.S. and produces an extremely consistent quality of seed, unlike those grown in other countries.
Known to be fussy about rice, the Japanese-owned company, Nomura, oversees all growers and all the mills, and follows strict guidelines to ensure it remains a high-grade Calrose rice; otherwise, it is deemed not deserving of the special Kokuho name.
You could say Kokuho Rose® is the crown jewel in our collection, and Kokuho is the crown.
