A treasured heirloom that has been grown since before 1930, each pod contains from 2-5 red-skinned, mild, sweet kernels. A Valencia type, earlier than the Virginia strains. Superior for roasting or boiling, which is a preferred method of preparing them in the Deep South.
Plant peanuts in fertile soil about 1 inch deep after danger of frost has passed in spring. Keep free of weeds but do not mulch - mulch will prevent the flower peg, where the peanut develops, from penetrating the soil. Dig peanuts in about 120 to 140 days when foliage begins to yellow at the end of the growing season.
