Peanuts are a unique plant. They flower above ground, but the seeds that are harvested and are the nut that we know as the peanut, grow below ground. Peanuts are best grown in warm, southern climates. However, they can also be grown in northern climates with some special care.

Peanuts require, on average 100-130 frost-free growing days. In warm climates, peanuts are planted in spring and harvested in fall. Growers in colder climates need to choose an early-maturing variety, 100 days or less, and start seeds indoors 5-8 weeks before outdoor conditions are hospitable to transplanting.

Plant in full sun and use row covers, if necessary, to protect plants from spring frosts. Sow seeds 2” deep and 8” apart. When the seedlings reach 6” tall, hill around the plants like is done with potatoes. Hilling plants means mounding dirt around them so the underground tubers have space to grow and expand without growing above the soil.

Harvest when the plant yellows, before the first frost. Dig up the entire plant, shake off the dirt, and hang upside down for a month to dry the seed “nut” pods.
