Believe it or not, peanuts can be grown in many parts of Canada!
Culture: Peanuts do best in a warm, sunny site with a sandy open soil. Sow seed from mid May to the first of June about 2.5-5 cm (1-2") deep, 12.5 cm (5") apart in rows 90 cm (36") apart - sow when soil temperature reaches at least 21 C (70 F). Thin to 25 cm (10") apart after germination. Keep plants evenly watered and the area well weeded through the season. Leave the plant to mature as long as possible in the fall, then dig up the entire plant after the first frost tickles the foliage. As freshly harvested peanuts have a high water content, hang the entire plant(s) in the garage or basement to dry (this is called curing). Do not rush this drying stage, the drier the peanuts are, the easier they are to roast. Roast at 190 C (375 F).
