In a quiet, peaceful town there is an oasis of excitement centered on the corner of the city hall. Great pics and memories follow feasting your eyes on the town's impressive accomplishment of growing a huge peanut.

Horse art sculptures

World's Largest Peanut

We visited the Peanut on August 31, on the corner of Evergreen and 3rd, facing the intersection. It was easy to find. Durant also has a group of metal horse statues on Main St. and several "painted horses" scattered through the town. Fun to find!

The big peanut was reported to have been removed by the local police in early 2010, but it was quickly returned.

Peanut Statue

The peanut statue is no longer there; local police say it was taken down because college kids kept stealing it.

June 2010: The peanut's reported to have returned!

World's Largest Peanut

While visiting Ft. Washita, Oklahoma, we saw signs proclaiming the "World's Largest Peanut." I thought it would be a real peanut, an agricultural freak. Instead, we found a cast aluminum peanut perched atop a stone monument. We still laugh about this ridiculous monument. Here is a picture of me (I'm the guy in the Amish hat) and a family friend, Alex.

Here's a much larger peanut -- though still not a home-grown goober.

World's Largest Peanut

While driving through Oklahoma, I came across the World's Largest Peanut in front of the city hall at the quiet city of Durant. Aside from the Peanut, the only memorable thing about Durant was that a truck driving on the wrong side of the road ran me and a mini-van off the highway.

Durant's goober is part of our Big Peanut battle, but by no means the winner. Bigger nuts rule in Georgia...
