Wild rice, contrary to the name, is not actually a member of the rice family, although it is a grain producing grass. Wild rice is native to North America and can still be found growing wild in the ponds and lakes of Wisconsin, as well as in neighboring states. Like rice, wild rice grows in water, although wild rice tends to require much deeper watwer resources. The two grains also have taste similarities, both tasting much more nutty with the outer husk left on. The similarities between the two grains end here, however.

Wild rice, unlike conventional rice, has not been domesticated for commercial cultivation. Wild rice must still be painstakingly harvested from boats in the open water, using beating sticks to knock the mature grains into holding containers. Wild rice, like most grains in their natural state, matures at different times to ensure the widest spread of seeds and the least probability of damage and seed loss. As a result, fully mature grains can shatter and be lost at the bottom of the lake while other seeds are still developing.
