Niigata Koshiibuki (Sush Rice) 新潟県産越息吹米
新潟産 こしいぶき 5kg
Koshiibuki variety was officially registered in 2003. The origin of the name means new breath (Ibuki) from the region of Echigo (Koshi). Its name was voted by the inhabitants of Niigata Prefecture. It can be harvested faster than Koshihikari. It is also easy to grow. As it does not shell out much at harvest, it can be cut gently and the yield is stable.
The grains can ripen during the hot summers without losing their quality—a feat previously considered all but impossible—and can still present a beautiful gloss and a just the right amount of stickiness when cooked. The quality is exceptional, and the taste can be compared to Koshi Hikari.
Use exact amount of water for sushi rice OR + 10% of water if you just want to enjoy plain rice as is. If you like chewy texture Japanese rice this is perfect for you.
