World's Largest Boiled Peanut

Not here any longer.

[Allie, 03/21/2022]

The peanut is currently on a wheeled trailer, covered with a black tarp, and parked downtown. It's only uncovered during Bluffton's annual Boiled Peanut Festival in September. We understand the desire to protect a precious civic symbol, but come on.

[Brennan, 07/28/2017]

22 feet long, weighing nearly a half-ton, the one-of-a-kind plywood-and-spray-foam peanut stood at South of the Border until it was purchased by Cahill's Market in 2014. It was built by Jared Jester, Clayton Colleran, and Hannah Parrish for the Boiled Peanut Festival in Columbia, South Carolina, in 2013.
