Called the grandfather of American long grain rice, Carolina Gold fueled the plantation wealth of the Carolinas. But the plantations depended on the knowledge and labor of enslaved Africans to produce rice, and the rice agriculture of the region nearly disappeared after the Civil War. Working with the plant researchers at Clemson University and the seed bank at USDA's Rice Research Institute in Texas, Anson Mills brought Carolina Gold rice back into production in 1998. It has a clean, sweet flavor and mouthfeel superior to modern long-grain rice.
