Peanut

Georgia designated the peanut as the official state crop in 1995. Georgia produces almost fifty percent of the total United States peanut crop and more than fifty percent of peanuts used in the production of peanut butter. Georgia also leads the nation in the export of peanuts. Georgia also recognizes the peanut monument in Ashburn as an official state symbol.
