Peanut

Arachis hypogaea

How fun is it to grow peanuts? They're a great project to do with kids to show how this fascinating plant grows underground. The peanut plant is a warm-weather legume that blooms with yellow flowers. After the flowers fade, short stems called pegs form; in about 10 days, the pegs push their way underground, where shells and nuts form. Plants grow best in well-drained but evenly moist soil.
