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'.
(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.
