Mancan is a mid-season buckwheat that was developed at the Agriculture Canada Research Station, Morden, Manitoba. It has a seed size 26% larger than Tokyo.


Buckwheat is often counted as grain, though unlike most grains, they are not true grasses. Buckwheat is thus not related to true wheat. Buckwheat is a fast-growing, warm-season, succulent, broad-leaved annual attaining a height of 2 to 4 feet. It has one main stem with several smaller branches. Leaf shape is roughly triangular, and flowers are white, pink, or red. Seeds are of two types depending on the variety: large and dark-colored with triangular-shaped sides, or smaller and gray-colored, with a rounder shape.
