The peanut, also known as the groundnut, is a legume crop grown mainly for its edible seeds.
It is widely grown in the tropics and subtropics, being important to both small and large commercial producers.
A typically among legume crop plants, peanut pods develop underground (geocarpy) rather than above ground. With this characteristic in mind, the botanist Carl Linnaeus named the species hypogea, which means “under the earth”.
