Seasonal period: All year

Type of japonica grain, with pearly appearance. The grain is round and short. It is around 5 mm long and 2.1 wide.

Experts consider it a high-quality rice for cooking due to its chemical composition, which keeps the perfect proportion between amylase and amylopectin. During cooking, the accordion effect keeps the rice entire and avoids it from sticking. These characteristics make the bomba rice especially appropriate for the Mediterranean cuisine.

Firstly, it doesn’t get thick easily and the grains don’t open during the boiling process. Secondly, it can keep an intense flavour thanks to the big amount of liquid it absorbs. Lastly, since the grains are very regular when it comes to size, it is pleasing to the eye and the palate. For all these reasons, the bomba rice is especially appreciated and considered the most suitable one for typical Mediterranean dishes such as the paella.

After cooking, the grains grow to four times their size, so it will be necessary to cook it with a little more of stock, 3.5 parts of stock for each part of rice. The cooking time is a bit longer (20 minutes approx.).
