DID YOU KNOW? The peanut, also known as the groundnut is a legumecrop grown mainly for its edible seeds. It is widely grown in the tropics and subtropics, being important to both small and large commercial producers. As a legume, the peanut belongs to the botanical family and related to both peas and beans. Peanuts are similar in taste and nutritional profile to tree nuts such as walnuts and almonds, and as a culinary nut are often served in similar ways in Western cuisines. The botanical definition of a "nut" is a fruit whose ovary wall becomes very hard at maturity. Using this criterion, the peanut is not a true nut, but rather a legume. However, for culinary purposes and in common English language usage, peanuts are usually referred to as nuts.
