Additional Information:
These pale-skinned peanuts are ready to eat or roast as you wish.

Botanically peanuts are legumes, however, for culinary, research and nutritional purposes, peanuts are considered a nut. Peanuts grow underground, as opposed to nuts like walnuts, almonds, etc. that grow on trees and these are botanically considered drupes.

Peanuts, along with beans and peas, belong to the single plant family, Leguminosae. Legumes are edible seeds enclosed in pods. As a group, they provide the best source of concentrated protein in the plant kingdom. While their physical structure and nutritional benefits more closely resemble that of other legumes, their use in diets and cuisines more closely resembles that of nuts.

Peanut seeds (kernels) grow into a green oval-leafed plant about 18 inches tall, which develop delicate yellow flowers around the lower portion of the plant. The flowers pollinate themselves and then lose their petals as the fertilised ovary begins to enlarge. The budding ovary or ‘peg’ grows down away from the plant, extending to the soil. The peanut embryo turns horizontal to the soil surface and begins to mature, taking the form of the peanut. From planting to harvesting, the growing cycle takes four to five months, depending on the type or variety.

Storage Advice:
Store your nuts in a sealed container in a cool, dark cupboard or pantry. Most nuts will keep for up to six months that way, but as with most foods, the sooner you eat them, the better they’ll taste. The refrigerator will gain you a month or two more in shelf life. But the best spot is in the freezer. They’ll stay fresh and crunchy for at least a year that way, and probably longer. No matter what, keep nuts in a sealed container. They can easily pick up other odours, and the more you expose them to air, the quicker the oils in them will turn rancid.

Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.

  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
  • Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
  • Suitable for home freezing.
