Description

Si Ga Ohata Mochi is a Japanese “landrace” upland rice, with a reddish colored bran. This variety is described as being “non-waxy” which also means non-glutinous. I am not sure why the name refers to being a “mochi” type. Traditional Japanese mochi uses “glutinous” or “sticky rice”. I transplanted in late May and harvested on September 27th (123 days). These are very tall plants (4 1/2 foot) with a fair amount of tillers. There was some lodging after heavy rainfall in early September.
