South American Peanuts

The peanut, notwithstanding its popular name, is not regarded as a nut, but is in reality borne on a leguminous plant, and therefore rather closely related to the peas and beans. The picture shows a specimen of a variety of peanut from South America that Mr. Burbank has taken in charge to see if anything notable can be done with it.
