Me, either. I thought a peanut was a peanut. Shows how little I know. Hilarious!

The first time I grew peanuts I thought the 'nuts' grew underground like a potato. But no, not exactly; after the flower falls away the flower stalk elongates, searches for the ground and grows into the soil...and then makes the 'nuts'.
These are some smart plants! Thumbs up

Peanuts are I believe cousin to Violets. In that after blossom drops off the stem grows long and a seed head develops.

The boss lady of a pet charity of mine tries every year, to grow something new. Now I had as perfect a place to grow peanut in new england as any could hope for. I only got lucky about one year in three. I think she does not have a snowballs chance in hades. Still I like her style, and this may help her tick this one off of her bucket-list.
