What is peanut?
The peanut (Arachis hypogaea), is a legume whose development is fascinating. Once the flowers have been fertilized, they bend under their own weight and burrow into the soil at a depth of 3 to 8 cm. The end of the stem swells, ripens and produces the pod underground. The pods are 3 to 4 cm long and contain 2 or 3 seeds.
Groundnuts are an important crop as well as a major food crop in much of the developing world, particularly in West Africa and the drier parts of India and Latin America. Groundnuts from Senegal, symbolically called “Gold of Senegal”, now provide income for nearly 40% of the population. Groundnuts are mainly cultivated for their seeds, which are used as raw materials for oil extraction. But there are other forms of consumption such as roasted groundnuts and groundnut paste.
