1 kg bag of Cooperativa del Campo Virgen de la Esperanza Calasparra round rice (arroz), DO Calasparra, from the town of Calasparra, Murcia.
The DO Calasparra grows and packages rice of the Balilla x Sollana and Bomba varieties exclusively. The Denomination of Origin guarantees that the rice contained in this package is grown in the Coto Arrocero de Calasparra. The Balilla x Sollana variety is a rice of extraordinary gastronomic quality appreciated by the best chefs in the world.
The quality and prestige of 'Arroz de Calasparra' is the result of the characteristics of the area where it is grown: the purity of the water, the climate, the particular layout of the small plots in mountainous and ravine areas along the River Segura and its tributary the River Mundo, the use of selected seeds and above all the organic cultivation system, which does not exhaust the richness of the soil.
As it has a greater natural dehydration, the product absorbs a greater quantity of broth, and therefore, each kg of rice will yield a greater number of servings.
Round grain variety (average length = 5.3 mm), which increases in length and thickness by 70% when cooked.
