If you’re going to grow water chestnuts, you need to make a distinction among water chestnuts because all chestnuts are not created equal. There are two plants referred to as water chestnut plants: Eleocharis dulcis and Trapa natans. One is commonly thought to be invasive while the other may be grown and eaten in a number of Asian dishes and stir-fries.

Growing water chestnuts look like other water rushes with 4-6 tube-like stems that poke 3-4 feet above the surface of the water. They are cultivated for their 1- to 2-inch rhizomes, which have crisp white flesh and prized for its sweet nutty flavor. The tubers look somewhat like gladiola bulbs and are dirty brown in color on the outside.
