You mean place or how it produced?

aren't peanuts rootcrops? I remember as a child when I was in the province we dig for nuts in the soil.

Penuts grow underground. You just pull up the plant and they are attched to the root

I THOUGHT they grew underground. Sorta like carrots right?
See.... I have this theory that my dad told us they grow in cow poop cuz he wanted them all to himself. *laughs* Or maybe he was talking about fertilizer???? Hmmmmmmm Gonna have to ask him about that one of these days.
Which reminds me -- I saw a spongebob episode once where he had them growing in a window... like a little peanut tree. (there's more to that episode but I wont share) I know cartoons aren't accurate for science...but it sorta threw me off.
