Where to buy largest green peanuts for boiling?

by Bill
(Houston, Texas)

Where can I find the largest variety of green peanut suitable for boiling? Will they only be available during certain months?

I live in Houston, but if I can't find them here, I am willing to buy online. I would like to buy in 5 lb to 15 lb bags.

Thanks for any help.

Largest green peanuts for boiling
by: Bret

Bill,
Varieties of Virginia Jumbo peanuts are the largest. Green peanuts are only available during harvest season, because by definition they are freshly dug from the ground. Since green peanuts have a high kernel moisture content, they may be stored refrigerated and dry for a few days, or can be frozen for a few months.

Green peanuts must be shipped by 2 day air to prevent spoilage. The last time I ordered green peanuts from Georgia, the shipping charges were 2 times the cost of the peanuts themselves.

I've read about super jumbo green peanuts that are typically 4 inches long, and as big around as a man's thumb, but I've never bought them.

I found super jumbo green peanuts for sale at Fidler Farms in Silverhill, Alabama. Per their website these are available September to mid November.

Mitchell Farms in Collins, Mississippi also advertises super jumbo green peanuts.

I just got off the phone with Fidler Farms and was told that they're no longer selling or shipping green peanuts due to quality concerns.

Mitchell Farms
by: Gunner

Just called Mitchell Farms today, November 8, and their season is "over" as they have run out of stock. They do not ship, but they recommended that I get up with Royal Oak (Farms) in North Carolina to try my luck there. He also said that the dry peanuts are fine for boiling, and they have a longer shelf life than the Green peanuts prior to being boiled, anyway. He said to just boil them for around 8 hours or so, and that they would turn out just as well as the green ones would. Cannot argue with a farmer about farmer stuff, now can we? I think I'll try to find some dry peanuts now and get the ole' kettle a' boilin'!!!!

green/raw peanuts
by: Anonymous

Farmers lie,lie,lie. Raw and green taste totally different. A Virginia farmer talked me into buying raw peanuts when I was looking for green. I don't know why the dried raw taste so different, but if you are gonna boil a peanut, make sure they are green, and the water is like the dead sea. The boil time is not as long as you think. The peanuts are steaming inside their shells. The soak time after the boil is what counts.

Green Vs Dried
by: Chuck

I definitely prefer green peanuts over dried to boil. No comparison in taste. I've been boiling peanuts for over 40 yrs for myself, love them! I soak the green peanuts after washing for a few hours, or over night. Dried peanuts, you should soak over night, or longer, for less boil time and flavor.

I only boil dried in the winter when I get desperate!

Being from Florida originally now in De. I am looking for a green peanut source this season.

Thanks

I have ordered peanuts from Hardy Farms. They will have green peanuts available in August. I prefer the green ones, too, but they have some called jumbo and runners they sell as well, although they aren't green peanuts.

Just received my order from Hardy Corp that professes to sell Jumbo Green peanuts from Georgia. These are NOT JUMBO sized peanuts at all. Yes - they are green and Yes - they are good boiling peanuts but NOT JUMBO sized. Very disappointed.

Great Peanut crop so far at Fidler Farms, 20225 Bohemian Hall Road Silverhill, Alabama. He will not ship because you have to keep them cold. 251-979-6887 (NUTS). He delivers to Mobile and you may be able to coordinate a time when he is sending some that way. Good Luck!
