I was wondering how to start a peanut plant from a peanut if it is possible. If it is possible how can i grow one.

We buy ours at a local co-op. Shell and plant them in the row. God takes care of the rest. We boil ours and put them in the freezer to enjoy the rest of the year. Roast some also, but, boiled is our favorite. You can boil with hot peppers, crab boil, most any flavor.

Any peanut will grow if it's not been roasted, boiled, etc. Raw peanuts. They sell them in a bag at Wal-mart. Remove the shells and plant 1" deep in May.(depending on where you live) The sandier type soil is better. When the peanut blooms, they will be low to the ground (the flowers). The flowers put out roots that make the peanuts. If your soil is not sandy, make sure it's loose around the plants when the flowers are trying to do this. Have fun and good luck.

Jon- Many years ago, when I was a dumb assed kid (like I'm getting back to now), I bought some mail order peanut seeds. They grew and did well here in Central Iowa. When the vines died down I dug 'em up, knocked off the dirt, and hung 'em up complete, vine and all, in the corn crib to dry out. The plan was to roast 'em later and eat 'em.

Before I got back to 'em the mice loved 'em! I'm still eating my dry roasted and salted peanuts outta glass jar.

Check your spring seed catalogs for peanut seed. Trying to grin about it 40 years later, IHank
