It's not actually, despite the name. It's related to rhubarb and sorrel and is native to central Asia.

Buckwheat is actually a seed! It doesn't come from wheat, despite its name. It is gluten free, and can be used raw, toasted, or ground into flour. Popular uses are buckwheat pancakes and buckwheat (soba) noodles.
