Fresh Green peanuts are available in the mid to late summer months.
Fresh Green peanuts are botanically known as Arachis hypogaea and are classified as a summer legume, not a nut. Peanuts are believed to have originated in South America before spreading throughout the globe through explorers and spice trading. Peanuts begin by being planted underground, produce slender green stems and leaves, then produce green pegs that grow back toward, and eventually back underground. When it is time to harvest, entire plant is dug up and typically one will find about 20 peanuts on each plant.
Fresh Green peanuts have a hard outer shell that is a light tan color, which contains the inner white kernels, typically two per pod. Fresh peanuts do not need to be cooked before consuming and offer a mild, buttery flavor, with a somewhat starchy texture.
