This premium, small-grain rice is a cross of balilla and solana rice from the protectected Denominacion de Origen of Calasparra in Murcia.
Bomba is an heirloom rice varietal. Notoriously difficult to grow, it has amazing absorptive qualities, doubling in size when cooked while maintaining a firm texture. There is no better rice for paella.
Balilla varietal rice, rich in fiber and mineral salts is round in shape and medium in size, allowing good liquid absorption and producing a creamy and flavorful finish. A great value for your Spanish and Mediterranean rice dishes.
