This peanut is preferred for areas where peanuts are hard to mature because of its earliness. It is also better for your health to eat red skinned varieties. They are easy to grow and do not need to be hilled, though appreciate two or three cultivations, hilling up with each one. It is a pre-1930's heirloom. We got our seed originally from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange and this is the second year grown here with our own seed. We grow for our own table and sell a few extra seed to others. We sell them in the shell. Shell the nuts before planting Can be started early in cups and transplanted one foot apart.

All of our seed offerings were grown here. I have been a seed savers for 40 years. Our seeds are packaged in original art packets, hand folded with 100% recycled paper. Instructions for growing are not on the packs but are on the listing under the seed template. Books on gardening as well as many catalogs carry general information on growing seeds. I am available by e-mail or phone to answer any growing questions as well. You won't find that service from many sources of seeds. The shipping on our orders also includes the processing and handling charges which is also less or equal to most seed companies. I hand pack each order and drive from the farm to the post office to ship your order.I only ship in the USA.
