Can you grow peanuts in Wisconsin

The peanut, a legume, grows reasonably well in southern and central Wisconsin, especially on lighter, well-drained, fertile soils. However, the state's growing season is generally too cool and too short for the fruits to reach full maturity—thus, they probably won't store well.

Seed peanuts around May 10 in rows 24 to 30 inches apart. Thin plants to 12 to 15 inches apart in the row. Harvest by lifting plants with fruits attached, then cure thoroughly in a dry, well-ventilated place. Remove fruits, wash and roast in the shell, or remove seed and roast separately.
