  1. water chestnut plant

    A water chestnut plant is a type of aquatic vegetable that grows in marshes, underwater in the mud. It originates from the Cyperaceae family and is native to Asia, Australia, and Africa. The plant has a rosette of floating, feather-like leaves sprouting from an underwater stem and produces a green, prickly fruit containing a large, round seed. This seed, popularly referred to as a water chestnut, is known for its crunchy texture and sweet taste and is commonly used in Asian cuisines. There are two main types of water chestnut plants, Eleocharis dulcis and Trapa natans, usually referred to as the Chinese water chestnut and European water chestnut respectively.
