Description

New Product!

Red-skinned heirlooms, a Southern treasure. A Valencia-type peanut, earlier than Virginia strains. Buttery, sweet flavor with papery red skins. Easy to grow without hilling, even in heavier soils. As plants begin to flower, cultivate the soil around the plant base to let the “peg” penetrate downward and form the peanuts underground. Harvest when plants begin to yellow in the fall. Carefully dig under the canopy of the plant to harvest. Peanuts can be washed before drying, or dry on the plant. Cure peanuts out of direct sun, where there is good air circulation. Superior for roasting or boiling.

My parrot loves peanuts but wastes half of them. So will try to grow my own.

We love to eat peanuts, and organic peanuts are not easy to find. We also hope that the peanuts will be good for our soil.

I've grown peanuts once in the past and find them "fun" to grow. I would also like to get enough peanuts to fix chocolate covered peanuts for us - so good!

peanuts
Seeds arrived quickly and I planted several. They germinated soon enough and the plants are now about one inch tall. I'm looking forward to seeing how they grow and am planning to plant some more.
