HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Northern gardeners may want to start their peanut seeds indoors to get a head start on the season. Plant them 1" deep in large peat pots and keep at a temperature of 70 degrees F until germination; transplant them 10" apart as soon as the soil temperature reaches an average of 60-70 degrees F. In warmer climates, direct sow around the time of the last frost by planting the seeds 3" deep and 5" apart; later, thin plants to 10" apart. Peanuts need full sun and soil with good drainage, though Tennessee Red peanuts can be grown even in clay soils.

Growing: When the plant reaches 12" tall, mound up the dirt around it and add mulch to conserve moisture and keep the soil soft. The tops of the faded flowers, also called pegs or peduncles, will bury themselves in the earth and begin to develop peanuts. Water the plants if the weather gets dry.

Harvesting: When the peanuts are ripe, the leaves will turn yellow and the outer skin of the shell will feel papery and dry. Remove the entire plant from the ground by lifting it with a garden fork, and let it dry in a well ventilated, dry location for two or three weeks. When the leaves begin to crumble, remove the peanuts from the plant.

Seed Saving: Peanuts properly dried for 2-3 weeks can be used for seed, though they cannot be planted immediately because of a 1-3 month period of dormancy.

peanuts

I ordered 1/4 pound of tennessee red peanut seeds on 2/20/2020 (order # 54246). I received the 1/4 pounds of peanut seeds but they were not tennessee red peanuts ( as they were labeled) . Several years ago i ordered one pound of seeds and they were tennessee red. They came in their shell and had a red papery membrane. There were also some peanuts that had up to 4 peanuts per shell. The last peanuts I ordered were without shells and had no red papery membrane. I planted them in early May and harvested them late September. They grew okay but they were not tennessee red peanuts. There were only 2 peanuts per shell and there was no papery red membrane around each peanut. The peanuts were larger than tennessee red peanuts. The problem is that i live in tennessee and i have clay instead of sandy soil. I had more peanuts with mold on the shells this year than the previous 4 years when i grew tennessee reds. I would prefer to get the peanuts that are designed for clay soils.

Peanut Seed

Got my peanut seed on time. I haven't planted them so I can say to much. The price was good according to others I had priced. Looking forward to planting them in May, and see how they multiply.

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

If you've never grown peanuts before, try these first. This heirloom variety grows well in many soil types and harvests earlier as well. The large shells hold 3-5 peanuts encased in red jackets. Sure to please any peanut lover with their slightly sweet nuttiness.
Tennessee Red peanuts, named for their papery red seed covers, were the first Valencia type peanuts grown in New Mexico. New Mexico now produces 90 percent of the national crop of Valencia peanuts such as Tennessee Red, which are known for their slightly smaller size and sweeter taste in comparison with Virginia or Spanish peanuts.
