Domestic variety with a kernel that has high
amylose content, comparable to Carnaroli.
Poseidone matures much earlier than traditional domestic varieties, and behaves very well in late-sowing conditions.
Poseidone has always maintained a high production yield without compromising the quality of the product.
Its stem is much smaller than that of Arborio and Carnaroli which reduces the risk of bending, and facilitates cultivation.Fungicide treatments are recommended.
