Rice arrived in the United States in 1694 when a ship sailing from the island of Madagascar, bound for England, was blown off course by a storm. It was forced to land at the colony of Charleston, South Carolina for repairs. The people there were kind to the sailors, so the captain expressed his gratitude by giving the governor of the colony a handful of rough rice grains. The grains were used by colonists for seed, and from this small amount, the people of the colony grew enough rice to supply South Carolina and other neighboring colonies. The quality of the Carolina rice was high, and the export trade with England soon developed.
