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.

how to Grow Peanuts
Harvest peanuts once the plants' leaves have yellowed and the plants have begun to dry. Carefully pull or dig plants with a spading fork and shake off the loose soil. Mature peanuts have ridged shells and filled pods. Dry the plants and pods in a warm, well-ventilated location for a week. Separate the pods from the plants and dry for another week. Shell the peanuts and roast at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes as needed.
