Facts About a Great American Pro
.\ore than 6.ooo,ooo bushels of
home-grown peanuts are consumed
annually by Americans. involving
more than S14,ooo.ooo in the industry,
and Suffolk. Va., is the center for this
one of the largest enterprises of the
world. A remarkable fact in regard
to this is that this great business has
developed entirely since the trying
days of the Civil war.
The Union and Confederate troops
who campaigned through the peanut
sections found that they could ob
tain from the nuts a good meal for a
very little foraging. Since then the
'goober" and "pinder," as the nut is
called in the south, has grown in pop
ularity and sale until where once
there were .only small patches there
are now farms of fifty acres or more.
Virginia takes the lead in the in
dustry. having large plants at Nor
folk, Smithfield, Wakefield, Franklin,
Waverly and Petersburg, but at none
ofvthe-se places does the business
equal that of Suffolk. The finest pea
rut grown is of the "bunch" variety,
but the Virginia "running" is the most
idely known, the most popular with
he trade, and may be taken as the
:ypical American peanut.
Every year the peanut crop is be
:oming more valuable and, while all
kmericans are fond of the nut, it is
vident that the time is coming when
ts utilization in manufacturing oil
md other products will make inroads
n the output for the palate. The old
,vorld is now using millions of bushels
tnnually for their oil, which is re
arded as equal to olive oil and is now
;old as such. It is also used as lubri
ating oil and sometimes takes the
>lace of lard.
The Virginia nuts have large, white
)ods. and in point of flavor and size
re the finest raised, the selects from
:hese being known as the "Jumbo."
rhe white and red nuts of Tennessee
tre excellent, but are not so large as
he Virginia variety. North Carolina
)roduces the African variety, small
tnd full of oil, but pleasant to the
:aste. Authorities differ as -to the
ut being a native of Africa or Brazil.
:n Louisiana is found t4e Spanish
-ariety. small but prolific, and large
juantities are grown.
Peanuts will grow in any latitude
vhere Indian corn will thrive, but a
ood crop depends upon the climate.
Mhere the land is pulverized and
nade porous and free from grass and
veeds. there is little to be done in
he way of cultivation after the seed
s placed in the ground. Specially de
ised ploughs are used for cultivating
nd harvesting the crop.
The picking of the nuts furnishes
ork for thousands of people. prin
ipally the -negroes. The vines are
tocked or stored in barns after they
re ploughed from the ground. The
actories, which are really cleaners
~nd graders of the nuts are the outfit
f the planters, and, after a treat;ment
>f cleaning and sorting, the nut is
eady for the consumer.
The factories are four-story build
ngs and the machinery consists of
ans, brushes, polishers and separa
ors. The nuts are dumped into large
ioppers on the fourth floor, passing
nto large cylinders on the next floor,
rhere they are cleaned by attrition,
ans taking out the dust as they pass
n and around the cylinders. Then
hey pass to the second floor, where
ans blow out and separate the light
veight nuts, and the others pass on
o tables in the form of endless belts.
From these tables the hundreds of
vomen and children pick out the dis
olored and faulty nuts and allow the
etter ones to pass on into the grader.
