Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat. It isn't even a grass. Since the seeds are eaten however, it is considered a pseduo-cereal. The name buckwheat comes from a modification of "beech-nut". The traingular shape of buckwheat resembles the nuts of the beech tree. It is related to rhubarb.
