Peanut Seeds


Useful gardening information

Peanut seeds are planted one to two inches deep, one every six inches or so apart, in rows about three feet apart. The seeds do best in sandy soil, especially soil rich in calcium. When the soil temperature is warm (65-70 F.) given enough water the seeds will sprout. In about two weeks, the first "square" of four leaflets will unfold above the peanut field. Thirty to forty days after emergence the plants bloom, "pegs" form and enter the soil. The peanut shells and kernels develop and mature during the next 60 to 70 day period. Depending on the variety, 120 to 160 frost free days are required for a good crop.

TPF229 Gregory Peanut ( No Shell )
Gregory is an extra-large, highly productive Virginia-type peanut just right for home gardens. This delicious gourmet variety has an adaptable habit and big yields of the best pink-skinned peanuts you will ever eat!
Gregory comes to us from the North Carolina Agriculture Research Station, filling the need for extra-large kernels (what the growers call "ELKS!") and generous yields. The habit of this plant is interesting: it is an intermediate type, between the "bunch" and the "runner" sizes. This means that it will be both nicely branched and vining, giving you more pods while maintaining a reasonable size for today's smaller gardens.
Gregory is moderately resistant to spotted wilt virus (a big issue among peanut plants), but its heavy yields and larger pods mean that the soil can benefit from a boost of calcium for best production. There are several ways you can add a bit of calcium to the soil: crushed eggshells do the job, as does ground limestone or dolomite. The quickest and simplest way might be good old tomato fertilizer, which is naturally high in calcium.
148 days from direct-sowing.
These seeds have been removed from shell and are ready to plant.
