Asian black rice

Oryza sativa


This is not really a black rice as it was called. It is a bit darker than the brown rice then it gets even darker when cooked. It is more expensive but tastier than the brown and white rice.


It grows well in sandy loam soil and it prefers a drier soil than the white rice.
