What is the fastest-growing edible plant in the world?
D. Wild Rice
Bamboo is not only the fastest-growing edible plant but also the fastest-growing plant on Earth. Period. Chinese Moso bamboo can grow over 3 feet in a single day! Bamboo shoots are low in fat and calories and contain loads of fiber and potassium. They have a very mild taste but take on flavors of other foods easily and can blend into almost any cuisine.
