Rice from Calasparra




Rice cultivation in Calasparra is very old; documents from the 14th century offer testimony of the importance of the rice crops in La Vega del Segura.

Despite its scant production, the cultivation area from Rice from Calasparra is especially relevant, due in part to the introduction of traditional ecological agricultural techniques. These efforts were rewarded in 1986 with the recognition of the Denomination of Origin that guarantees the quality of the product. The characteristics that make rice from Calasparra special are its taste and consistency. It is a rice that requires greater amounts of water and a longer cooking time, which makes the grain expand more and better absorb other flavours. It resists much longer than other without becoming pasty or loosing its culinary qualities.
