The accuracy of the results of a sensory test for highly palatable Chinese rice cultivars by Chinese panel members was evaluated statistically by analysis of variance. Concerning the overall eating quality, differences among cultivars and panel members were significant. However, the interaction between cultivars and panel members was not significant, showing that the evaluation of cultivars by panel members as a whole is meaningful. The taste preference of the panel members with a reputation for high tasting ability generally coincided with the mean value of the palatability of all panel members. The number of panel members who had high differentiating ability for overall eating quality was 9out of 18(50%). Thus, it was concluded that the sensory test for highly palatable Chinese rice cultivar by Chinese panel is reasonable. But have to increase the differentiating ability of the Chinese panel.
