Quick Answers



How do you harvest and store home grown peanuts?

Peanuts should be dug and left on the vine to cure in cool, dry conditions for 3-6 weeks. Without adequate curing, peanuts will lack flavor and may mold during storage. For best flavor retention and crispness, store peanuts in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
