Peanut Harvest and Storage

Peanut Farming January 05, 2018

Peanut Harvest and Storage

Dig out the entire plant with a spading fork.

  • You should harvest the peanuts before the first frost of fall occurs, since peanuts at this stage are still sensitive to frost attacks.
  • The plant will turn yellow and begin to wilt when it is ready to be harvested.
  • Gently dig up the entire plant with your gardening fork, lifting it up from beneath the roots. Shake off most of the soil clinging to the roots.
  • A healthy plant will usually yield about 30 to 50 peanuts.

Dry the plant out.

  • Hang the plant indoors in a dry location for about a month.
  • For the first one to two weeks, let the peanuts cure on the plant as they are in a warm, dry spot.
  • For the remaining two weeks or so, pull the nuts off and let them dry in the same warm, dry spot.

Roast or store the plants as desired.

  • You can enjoy the peanuts raw or roasted, or you can save them for later.
  • To roast peanuts, bake them in an oven set at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius) for 20 minutes.
  • To store peanuts, leave them in their shells and place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 6 months.
  • If you cannot refrigerate your peanuts, they can stay good for 3 months in a dry, dark storage area.
  • Peanuts can also be frozen for a year or longer.
