Peanuts are easy and really fun to grow and they grow in an interesting way! The plant flowers then a stem forms which thrusts itself into the soil, it then grows the peanuts!

FURTHER FERTILIZATION

When blossoms appear on the peanut plants, apply Gypsum [calcium (CaSO4) sulphate] over the plants (does not burn) they need about a handful per two plants This is essential to the formation of the peanut kernels.

GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

As the peanut plant grows and develops, small yellow blossoms appear (are capable of self-pollination). With maturity, these blooms wilt and a stem or peg forms. Gravity pulls the peg downward into the soil where the peanut pod forms.

The outer shell reaches full size well before the individual peanuts mature. Each plant produces between 25 and 50 peanuts. Mature plants may be as large as 36 inches in diameter and about 18 inches tall.

The peanut plant has a fruiting period of about two months. All pods do not “set” or ripen evenly. The object is to harvest when the greatest number of pods are matured.

DIGGING

When a peanut is ripe, the veins on the hull are prominent (they have that wrinkled, veiny look), and the inside of the hull has turned dark. If the inside of hull is white, the pod is immature. Pull a plant to examine pods for readiness. Dig when about 2/3’s of pods on a plant are mature.

If the soil is packed down around the plant, loosen it gently. Shake off as much of the soil as possible (if the earth is damp and sticks to the peanuts, shake again later when it has had time to dry.)

DRYING (OR CURING)

Allow plants, with peanuts still attached, to “cure” in full hot sun for 4 to 7 days (may be left, turned peanuts side-up on the garden row but only if you don?t fear rodents!) or inside a dry, well ventilated area (may be hung or spread in garage basement or storage building).

Ventilation is important to the curing process of reducing the initial moisture level of about 50% to a safe storage level of about 10%. Inside curing may take from 2 to 4 weeks.

When the curing process is completed, peanuts may be separated from the plant and used or stored.

STORAGE

Peanuts should be stored in a cool, dry place. They keep fresh indefinitely when stored in a tightly closed container in the freezer, ready for use. (from the net)
