What are the pros? Super easy to grow, high yield
What are the cons? -none-
My husband LOVES peanut butter and wanted to make some from homegrown peanuts. I chose this variety because it would look more like regular peanut butter when processed.
I grow many types of vegetables and fruits, but had not tried peanuts until this past year.
Many positive attributes:
-fast germination, with a nearly 100% germination rate
-extremely forgiving (Planting in ground was delayed due to excessive rain - I had to give them a "haircut" a couple of times.)
-extremely easy to care for (Plants were finally put in the ground late in July with temps at the 100? mark, with zero shade and "as needed" watering.)
-no insect or disease problems
-amazing yield of peanuts (We are still eating the ones we roasted, have plenty for planting this year, gave away plenty for eating/planting, and still have some left to roast!)
The only negative (if one can call it that) was that I didn't harvest early enough - many had already germinated within the shell!
