Wheat
Wheat is the main food grain produced in the U.S. Different varieties of wheat are used to make foods like bread, pasta, and breakfast cereals. There is evidence that wheat was first grown in the Fertile Crescent area of Southwest Asia at least 9000 years ago. Today, the U.S. is a major exporter of wheat but gets a lot of competition from China, India, and the European Union. Certain varietals of wheat can grow as high as six or seven feet but most stay between two and four feet tall. Bulgur is made by soaking wheat kernels, drying and removing the bran, then cracking the kernel into pieces to use in salads and soups.
