If we can grow tomatoes and oranges and herbs, why can’t we grow delicious peanuts too? Fact is, it’s not that hard to grow this legumes. They like sandy soil and warm climates, and are naturally resistant to predators and dry weather. You can grow peanuts in the ground as part of your garden or even in containers. Imagine harvesting your own peanuts and roasting them in the oven! Better yet, make your own homemade peanut butter.
- Peanuts are a nutritious tropical plant that must be grown in containers in cooler climates and require full sun.
- There are four main varieties available, which can be shelled and planted in pots at least a foot deep.
- The growing process takes 90- 150 days from germination, and it requires hilling up the soil around the plant, as you would with potatoes.
“Peanut plant care in pots is very similar to the process of growing potatoes.”
