I found this question interesting so I looked it up. There are around 40-50 thousand varieties or rice worldwide, that are known, but only around 800 types are cultivated. Interesting.

I looked it up and finally found it in the Encarta Encyclopedia.
Correction: Only a few hundred are cultivated. Sorry for that mistake, I must've been thinking about something else. :oops:

I eat rice as European and other nationality eat breads or potatoes.
I know that there are 3 types of rice. One is Japonica rice, which is sticky rice, but Japanese people eat this every day. Second one is Indica rice, which serve when you go to the U.S., South East Asian country. It is good for fried rice. The third one is rice for making rice cake. We called is "Mochi-gome" in Japanese. It is more sticky than Japonica rice, it is for making rice cake.
Actually I know all about this about rice. If there are som mistake in this comment or you know some more rice in the world, I would like to know about it!

Basmati rice, when cooked properly, is the most delicious in the world! I've prepared this type of rice for all my friends and they all swear it was their favourite.
