Any rice harvested, milled and packaged in the same year is called Shinmai, or newly harvested rice.
There are about over 300 kinds of rice in Japan
However, they are adjusting to climate and natural features of the region to improve every day.
There are possibilities that in few years, few decades time from now you might still see whole new brand rice than what we have now.
Shinmai is one of the flavors of autumn during September to October.
How to wash, amount of water, take a little time to soak Shinmai rice in water, when it's cooked mix it immediately and leave it for a little to steam away etc Shinmai could be a delicate food.
But Shinmai is very plump and moist, and its soft but heavy texture makes it so special for Japanese people.
