Java Raw Peanuts & Spanish Peanuts
One peanut. Two names.

Spread around the world by the Spanish. Propagated on the Indonesian island of Java. The Spanish or Java raw peanut is even known to some as the “Manila nut” due to intensive local farming there in the 18th century.

This world-famous variety of raw peanut is loved all around the globe, and comes in many subspecies: the shortest with a cropping cycle of just 90 days, the longest with a 130-day cycle from sowing to harvesting.

Java groundnuts are especially popular in Southeast Asian markets for their premium qualities. They are spherical in shape, and have a high level of flavour-enhancing Methylpyrazine. With a similarly high sugar content, they’re also the best ingredient for making quality natural peanut butter. Manufacturers can even make use of split peanuts for birds, processing them into sustainable and nutritious birdfeed.

Java Raw Peanuts come in several subspecies, including

● Baisha 
● TJ 37  
● JL (Java long)  
● K6 & Tag  
● Western 44 & G7
