RICE VARIETY Bomba True, the origin of the Bomba variety is unknown. Its culture, which dates back over 125 years in the Iberian Peninsula, retains its primitive characteristics and qualities. A study carried out by the Faculty of Biological Sciences of the University of Valencia shows the existence of different properties depending on the cultivation area. In the Albufera Natural Park, it is there that it acquires its marked character, which will later be expressed in all cooked dishes. It is a round and pearly grain; absorbs all flavors and resists overcooking very well. When cooked, multiply its size lengthwise by two.
