Carolina Black PEANUT 114 g

Retail Price: $8.50

110 days. A rare heirloom black-skinned peanut from N. Carolina. [ Introduced 1999 by SESE from seed sent by Derek Morris.] One of the varieties grown during the 1800s was the 'African' peanut (also known as the 'N. Carolina' peanut). It may have been a black peanut, possibly the same as the variety we call 'Carolina Black'. According to food historian William Woys Weaver, the black peanut may have been used as a substitute for black Bambarra (African ground nut) by the black community. Black Bambarra is important in African folk medicine as an aphrodisiac. The N. Carolina climate won't support black Bambarra, but the black peanut grows there without difficulty. 'Carolina Black' produces sweet tasting, black-skinned peanuts that are slightly larger than 'Spanish' peanuts. Averages 2 peanuts per shell. Peanuts are sold in shell to preserve seed freshness. Bulk Pkt. (114 g, 175 seeds)
Cannot ship to CA or Canada.
