During the Colonial Period, South Carolina was the largest producer of rice in America. The crop arrived in the area around 1685, when a ship sailed off course from the Island of Madagascar. Landing in Charleston for repairs, the Captain expressed his gratitude, by giving the Governor of the colony a handful of rice grains. From then on, rice became a primary export of Charleston. Today, rice still symbolizes Charleston's bountiful history and remains an iconic product to South Carolina.
