How Do Peanuts Grow?
Farmers plant peanut seeds in April and May when soil temperatures are between 65 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. About 10 days after planting, seedlings rise out of the soil to flower and fruit below ground. The peanut ovary is called a “peg,” and as it enlarges, it forms a stem that grows into the soil. The tip of the peg is what eventually becomes the peanut.
It takes four to five months for the peanut plant to be ready to harvest; most plants will produce around 40 peanut pods during a growing cycle.
