Eleocharis dulcis (Chinese water chestnut)

Eleocharis dulcis - A grass-like sedge native to Asia, Australia, tropical Africa, and various islands of the Pacific and Indian Oceans.It is grown in many countries for its edible corms. The water chestnut is not a nut at all, but an aquatic vegetable that grows in marshes, under water, in the mud. It has stem-like, tubular green leaves that grow to about 1.5 m. Water chestnut is a tufted, perennial rush-like plant with stems 50 - 200cm tall. The plant has short rhizomes and elongated stolons, most of these terminated by a globose tuber. As it is an aquatic plant, it should always be submerged in approx. 10 cm of water. The small, rounded corms have a crisp, white flesh and may be eaten raw, slightly boiled, or grilled, and often are pickled or tinned. They are a popular ingredient in Chinese dishes. In China, they are most often eaten raw, sometimes sweetened. Family : ‎Cyperaceae
