Pinto Peanut – Arachis pintoi

Collected during our visit to the Agriculture Department in Titi Gantong.

Uses: Ideal living mulch or green manure (Plants which are turned into the soil to enhance fertility) for orchards and garden.  It tolerates competition from grass and effectively excludes weeds and fixes nitrogen. Can also be used to protects the soil surface from erosion and improve soil structure. We will be planting Pinto Peanut along the edges of our Key Hole garden beds.
