Wild rice is robust annual grass that grows in shallow water in small lakes and slow-flowing streams and produces rice! Often, only the flowering head of wild rice rises above the water. The Ojibwa people call this native plant manoomin meaning "good berry". In the twentieth century, wild rice became more popular as a food source as a result of its nutritional value and taste. It is grown commercially in Minnesota and California as well as in other countries.
