Did you know that peanuts are not nuts?
We do not pick them from a tree! They do not grow on bushes! They grow underground like carrots and potatoes!
Peanuts are very similar to nuts and they taste like them. They are a kind of pea! They are peas which grow underground and not above the ground! You can find two peanuts inside one spongy shell. The pod in which the peanuts are is narrow in the middle and very easy to break.
Peanuts love warm sandy places.
The peanut plant has very beautiful yellow flowers.
Some people make cooking oil from peanuts.
Some people love peanut butter.
And some people enjoy eating them roasted!
