It’s rounded and pearl shaped, greatly aprreciated and recognized by major restaurateurs, chefs, foodies, and more demanding consumers. Its grain absorbs the broth and the flavors in a very special way, achieving exceptional taste, and it manages to duplicate its volume during the boiling, and it does not thicken. The cooking time is around 18-20 minutes. This variety is particularly suitable for Mediterranean rice dishes’: paella, dry rice, watery rice, stew rice, and risottos.
The Sénia and Gleva varieties are both middle size grain, from the “Tipo Senia” They are wet on the inside and on the surface, which favors driving tastes, and remains creamy after cooking.
