Mayan black rice came in with slave ships via Spanish times. It was domesticated in West Africa, where it's still popular, and preferred for eating. This is a very historic rice and probably the easiest rice to grow. Warning is, it has to be hand-dehulled. It's resistant to diseases and pests that destroy Asian rice, and is fast growing in popularity in Asia. It can tolerate some shade, and is also known as Forest Rice.
