Before cooking, it is terra-cotta coloured.
When cooked, the rice turns a mahogany colour and is slightly chewy. Some think the cooked rice has an aroma similar to hot peanuts or popcorn.
The rice splits slightly when cooked.

The name comes, mostly, from the names for the Lundberg brothers Wendell, Eldon, Homer, Albert, and Harlan (Albert was actually their father.)
It has been sold since at least 1991, and probably was on the market before that.
Lundberg Family Farms was established in 1937 by Albert Lundberg.
