Peanut, also known as groundnut, is a crop of global importance. It is widely grown in the tropics and subtropics, being important to both smallholder and large commercial producers. Very unusual among crop plants, peanut pods develop under the ground.
Peanut is an annual herbaceous plant growing 30 to 50 cm tall. Like most other legumes, peanuts harbor symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacteria in their root nodules.
It is a hardy plant that requires minimal attention. Peanut contains many trace elements like copper, zinc, manganese and vitamin B and is very nutritious.
Peanut is a tropical plant, it loves to grow in slightly humid and warm conditions. When growing peanuts in containers place them in the sunniest but less windy spot of your balcony or terrace. The plant does not survive below 0C. It flowers and fruits at a temperature between +20-35C.
For growing peanuts in containers fertile and light soil is required, which is neutral in pH and well-drained. Best to buy a good quality organic potting mix or make your own. Keep the soil slightly moist. During early growth and flowering period, increase watering. However, the plant tolerates short dry periods.
Groundnut is ready to harvest when the leaves begin to fade and become yellow. Water the soil just before the harvest, in order to facilitate the operation. From seed sowing to harvest, peanut plant takes 90 – 150 days, depending on the variety you have planted.
