Peanut Seed Planting Information:

Peanuts do best when the weather and soil is warm. Prepare the soil as peanuts prefer well drained and rich soil. Till the soil thoroughly, then plant the seeds. Plants grow 1 - 2 ft tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires loose fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant. Work the soil to a depth of 1 to 1 ½ feet so the soil is loose. Use plenty of manure and compost for large roots.

Water Requirements:

Water well during the season.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

To see if the peanuts are ready to harvest, dig up a few peanuts. If the hulls are white inside the peanuts are not mature. The peanuts will be ready to harvest when most of the hulls inside are dark. Dig or pull peanuts and dry the pods outdoors in full sun for 4 - 7 days before separating pods from the plants.
