Consider This:

There are several stories regarding the introduction of rice to America. One talks of a Dutch ship that in 1694 set sail from Madagascar. Storm-battered, it took refuge in South Carolina's Charleston Harbor, Charleston's inhabitants gave the crew a warm welcome and helped repair the ship. The departing ship's English Captain expressed his gratitude to the community by presenting it with a sample of his cargo, 'Golde Seed Rice'. These precious rice seeds were the forerunners of a now famous rice type - 'Carolina Golde'. – USA Rice Federation
