PeanutPeanut Spanish peanuts are cholesterol free, high in protein, contain essential vitamins and minerals, and are often referred to as nutrition in a nutshell. They are the sweetest peanuts with a full, rich taste, often used in candies and peanut oil. Peanuts have clover-like foliage with small, yellow, pea-like flowers; they produce around 30-60 peanut shells per plant and thrive in loose, well-drained soil. Work the soil several inches deep with compost and organic matter, and elevate or mound your rows for added drainage. Plant peanuts after danger of frost has passed. Harvest your peanuts when the foliage yellows in late summer. Carefully dig up your plants, shake off the loose soil, and hang them in a warm, dry location for 1-2 weeks. Then, pull the peanut pods from the plants and air dry them for an additional 1-2 weeks. Your peanuts should not be eaten until well dried. 100-120 days to harvest. 24″ Compost and Organic Matter
