Growing Instructions

Soak 2/3 cup of seeds in cool water for 4-12 hours.

Drain off soak water. Do not ever soak again.

Rinse thoroughly.

Drain thoroughly.

Keep your Sprouter in a relatively low light location.

Rinse and Drain with cool water again in 8-12 hours. You may Rinse and Drain 8-12 hours beyond that if you want.

We grow Peanuts as Soaks. We prefer them without Roots.

Harvest and eat or Refrigerate your crop.

Seed Storage

Peanuts are best stored in a cool location - at home, we keep ours in a freezer. Do not use the refrigerator as its humidity fluctuations can cause your seed to go bad prematurely. Peanuts are pleasing to a particular pest - the Indian Meal Moth, which can appear out of nowhere when conditions are right (hot). These are organic seeds after all, so there is no other way to keep your seeds absolutely safe, except to freeze them. Consider yourself educated =:-}

Science:

If you continue to sprout peanuts for a week or more you can learn a lot about plants! A Peanut is a DICOT seed. A dicot seed is itself, the first leaves of the plant it will grow into. You can just keep Rinsing and Draining or you can make it easier by sprouting the peanut in a small pot full of soil, after you get a small root growing (put the peanit into the soil - root down). Keep it moist in either case and see what you see! Though this is not uncommon in the sprout universe, peanuts are perhaps the most impressive example - because they are so plump and big! To learn more about sprout science you may want to visit our Kid's Sprout Zone (fun for inquisitive adults too!) and our Glossary/Taxonomy page.
