Thai jasmine rice and Cambodian jasmine rice share many characteristics and grow mainly in neighboring geographic areas on opposite sides of the northeastern Thai-Cambodian border.
  • Jasmine rice is grown primarily in Thailand (Thai hom mali or Thai fragrant rice), Cambodia (Angkor kra'oup or Cambodian jasmine rice), Laos, and Southern Vietnam. It is moist and soft in texture when cooked, with a slightly sweet flavor. The grains cling and are somewhat sticky when cooked, though less sticky than glutinous rice (Oryza sativa var. glutinosa), as it has less amylopectin. It is about three times stickier than American long-grain rice.
  • Thai jasmine rice and Cambodian rice share many characteristics and grow mainly in neighboring geographic areas on opposite sides of the northeastern Thai-Cambodian border. Cambodian jasmine rice is cultivated in Cambodia and processed as white (milled and polished) and brown rice. Distinct Cambodian jasmine rice varieties include these three, phka rumduol, phka romeat, and phka rumdeng. Jasmine rice is also grown in Laos and southern Vietnam but is not the predominant rice variety in each country. Glutinous rice is grown in Laos, and regular Oryza sativa predominates in Vietnam.
