Rice Akamuro

 4912 - Akamuro (110 days from transplant) Open-pollinated. A lowland rice for harvest in colder climates. Very nutty and full flavored. Does best from transplants. Sensitive to dry weather, for large yields Hayayuki craves saturated soil until July. Tops out at about 3'.

Oryza sativa

(105 days from transplant) Open-pollinated. A fast-maturing lowland rice, aka means ‘red’ in Japanese, and muro means ‘root cellar’ or ‘ice house.’ Originating in Hokkaido, Japan, this delicate rice, one of the skinniest, is a true heirloom. Aromatic seeds mature from pearly white to red. Hulls are burnt orange when mature. Extremely ornamental. Hardy to Zone 4b from transplant. Regardless of water management, this rice doesn’t produce many tillers from transplant, so it is a good candidate for direct sowing in 5a or warmer.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
