Virginia Jumbo Peanut are a staple for those who crave homegrown, premium quality peanuts. Renowned for their generous size and rich, nutty flavor, Virginia Jumbo Peanuts are a delight to cultivate and enjoy.

 

Plant Virginia Jumbo Peanut seeds in a location with full sun and well-drained soil. They thrive in warm climates with a growing season of at least 4-5 months.

Sow seeds directly into the garden or in large containers after the danger of frost has passed. Plant seeds about 1-2 inches deep and space them 6-8 inches apart in rows that are 24-36 inches apart.

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Peanuts require regular watering, especially during dry periods, to ensure healthy growth and development.

Peanuts benefit from a balanced fertilizer application at planting time. Avoid excessive nitrogen, which can promote foliage growth over pod development.

As the plants grow, they will produce yellow flowers. After pollination, the flowers will bend down toward the soil and bury themselves, where the peanuts develop underground. Hill soil up around the base of the plants to encourage peanut formation.

Harvest peanuts when the plants begin to yellow and the leaves start to fall off. Carefully dig up the plants and shake off excess soil. Allow the peanuts to dry in a warm, well-ventilated area for 1-2 weeks before shelling.

Experience the satisfaction of growing your own Virginia Jumbo Peanuts, perfect for roasting, snacking, or crafting homemade peanut butter. Whether you're a novice gardener or seasoned enthusiast, these seeds promise a rewarding journey from planting to harvest, bringing a taste of the South to your garden and kitchen.
