Mistake in gender of "Reis"

Hello, in my vovabulary list it reads: "Reis (n)". I undertand that it means that "Reis" is neutral, but as far as I know this is not true, because it is maculine. I think it should be "Reis (m)". Am I correct? Thanks!

  • der Reis = the rice

  • das Reis = the scion/sprig/twig

Thank you Cristian for your answer. Still in my vocabulary it is wrong because it translates "Reis (n)" as "rice", and the examples shown are about rice (what, by the way, is the only meaning I have practiced in Duolingo..)
