A rare gem. Black rice, also called forbidden rice is prized for its high levels of antioxidants and superior nutritional value. Forbidden rice earned its name because it was once reserved for the Chinese emperor to ensure his health and longevity, and forbidden to anyone else. Forbidden rice is a medium-grain, non-glutinous heirloom rice with a deep purple hue and a nutty, slightly sweet flavor. This whole-grain rice is rich in anthocyanins, which are antioxidant pigments that give the rice its unusual color. Black rice "blooms" when soaked overnight, and can be eaten raw. Eating any other rice raw is not recommended.
The Rice plant is a grass that can grow 3-5 ft in Water. The stems are upright and are composed of a series of joint like nodes. Rice is easy and fun to grow and a great educational project for your kids. You don't need to grow a whole paddy. In fact you can grow quite a bit with some buckets or pots.

Other Names: emperor's rice, chak-hao, purple rice seeds, black rice seeds, rare seeds, rare rice seeds, rare edibles, rare grain
