What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Took too long to mature

Review:

This is the first time I have ever tried to grow rice. I spaced my rows about 7 inches apart and planted seeds every 3 inches. 95% of the seeds came up and each plant had around 5 tillers. I planted in mid May and here it is late Oct and only a few heads of grain are ready. I would probably have more but some mice decided to enjoy it and the summer was mild. I planted in a raised bed and only watered it a few times after it started to flower. I will try this again next year with my remaining seeds and whatever seeds I get from this year. No problem with bugs only mice.

What are the pros? it is true rice seed

What are the cons? daylength sensitivity

Review:

First, I want to say that it is very exciting to see a seed company offering rice seed. Baker Creek deserves praise for offering this seed. Unfortunately, this rice will not flower for me, even though I planted very early. I believe it has serious day length sensitivities. I live 44 degrees North whereas Tennessee is 34 degrees North and Belize is 17 degrees North. If you live more than 34 degrees North, I wouldn't even try to grow this rice. Also, "Blue Bonnet" is an old cultivar available in some seed banks. This is probably not a "traditional rice grown by native Mayan people". Rice was domesticated in Asia and is a recent introduction to the Americas in any case.
