Product Description

Peanut Seeds - Arachis hypogaea

One of the most widely grown crops in the world, isn't it time you tried Peanuts in your own garden as well? Peanuts are such a fun novelty item to grow in your planting area. A summer blooming annual, Peanut Seeds need full sun and five solid months of warm weather to grow outdoors, but worry not, colder climates--they do remarkably well indoors in pots! Your peanuts are ready to harvest in late summer/early fall when the leaves begin to yellow. One of the unexpected joys of peanuts are their lovely yellow flowers - they are edible and are excellent in salads!

    About Peanut Plants

    One of the most widely grown crops in the world, peanuts are a fun novelty item to grow in your planting area. A summer blooming annual, peanuts are ready to harvest in late summer/early fall when the leaves begin to yellow. One of the unexpected joys of peanuts are their lovely yellow flowers - they are edible and are excellent in salads!

    When to Plant Peanut Seeds

    For outdoor sowing, plant Peanut seeds after danger of frost has passed in the spring. If starting your seeds indoors, plant several weeks before the end of frost season in individual pots.

    Where to Plant Peanut Seeds

    Peanuts grow best in well-composted, fertile, light-textured, sandy, well-drained soil in full sun conditions. The most ideal soil pH is 5.1-6.5. Add calcium as needed to the top 3-4" of soil.

    How to Plant Peanut Seeds

    Plant seeds about 2" deep in rows 3' apart with 6-9" between each plant in the row. Water regularly and avoid letting soil dry out. Seedlings should germinate within 14-21 days.

    How to Care for Peanut Plants

    Water regularly until germination takes place. After first fall frost, dig up plants and spread on a dry surface, not touching the ground, allowing plants to dry in full sun for 4-7 days before stripping the pods from the plants. Pods typically ripen 120-150 days after sowing your seeds.
