Peanuts (also known as groundnuts), despite having hard shells and seeds are actually legumes. As flowers pollinate themselves above ground, budding pegs grow out of the flowers and downwards into the soil. Upon penetrating into the ground, these pegs develop into mature pods that are harvested as peanuts. Initially, 落花生 (luò huā shēng) Literal. Fallen flower bring to life refers to the Peanut plant and 花生米 (huā shēng mǐ) Literal. Flower bring to life grain (unhusked) refers to Peanut. As time went by, peanuts (in general) are colloquially called 花生 (huā sheng).
