Don Pedro Valencia rice is a short-grain variety of rice, primarily cultivated in the eastern parts of Spain. It is commonly used to make paella and other dishes in Valencian cuisine. Valencia rice is a pearly white colour and a uniform consistency. One important property is its ability to absorb two or three times its volume in water without bursting. As a result, more water is needed to cook these products than other similar varieties. Additionally the grains of this rice tend to hold their structure well after cooking.
