Kokuho Rose is a variety of medium-grained rice developed and grown in California by Koda Farms. It is very similar to Japanese rice (japonica), which is short-grained and fat. Introduced to the American market in 1963, it is well-suited for Japanese cuisine because it's very sticky and glutinous, having the same taste and texture as Japanese rice. It is a very popular choice for making sushi because it is relatively easy to find and inexpensive.

To make sushi rice, the kernels have to be washed until the water is clear, then steamed. I use an electric rice cooker like Panasonic SRG06FG 3-Cup Automatic Rice Cooker, but you can get fancier ones that cost upwards of $100. Cooked perfectly, the grains are firm, slightly elastic and have a shiny, pearl-like luster.

You should be able to find this at your local Asian supermarket, as it is a widely distributed brand. Some bigger American supermarkets may also carry it. Another popular brand is Nishiki Premium Rice. These are the two major brands I use and recommend. If you can't find either of these, a third brand is Botan Rice.

I've tasted different rice varieties and this one is incomparable in taste and texture. Some of you may be skeptical but this special variety is short and plump but has a nice shine and not brittle when it is steamed. Also the texture is smooth as you eat it along with your favorite foods. Excellent for sushi. People who like their cooked rice a bit glutinuous will love this.

I tried this brand along with about 5 others while on a recent sushi making kick. This rice was significantly inferior to several brands of other California grown sticky rice, as well actual sticky rice from Japan. Rice came out more mushy than other brands - almost like it was overcooked, and on several occasions I would find a few hard pieces of rice mixed in with the rest. It's passable, but definitely not preferred, especially if you are trying to make sushi or something else where rice texture is important. At the time of this review the price is $14.95 for a 5 lb bag, compared to $7.20 for the same bag at my local Japanese supermarket - the review grade does not reflect this price differential, recognizing that it could change. I should point out however, that at $15 for a 5 lb bag, you can buy premium sticky rice imported from Japan in a decent Japanese supermarket.

Update: Have added additional brands to my comparison list, this one really is on the bottom by far, I question whether the 5 star reviewers have tried any other options (just about any California short grain variety, Botan Calrose from the supermarket, Nishiki - all significantly better than this.)

This was recommended on a Sushi making site and I can see why. The difference in the Sushi from last time to this time was tremendous, and the only difference was the rice that I used.

This rice is a nice change from the traditional white rice I find in the local grocery, primarily because it's sticky. When reheated it tastes as good as it did when first prepared. I find that both white and brown rice becomes hard after sitting in the fridge overnight and I end up throwing the leftovers away, but this rice is simply not the same. It still seems freshly cooked 3 days later.

Pretty clean rice, doesn't need much washing as compared to the cheap stuff I got at an asian market down the street. Cooks up nice, tastes good. Doesn't have any dark stuff that floats up during washing (or cooking, heave forbid!). Wish I could buy a 50 pound bag of the stuff for a bulk discount.

I live in Japan (for now) and this is the rice that always sells out the most at our local store and I have to buy it in 20lb bags for my house but the price on here is high. But it is worth it.

This is great rice - I cook this in my rice cooker ALL the time to go with my chicken curry. BUT.....$13 is WAY overpriced. You can get this in most local grocery stores (like Giant and Shoppers) for less than $7 for a 5lb bag.
