The level of moisture inside the peanut is the basic difference between green & raw peanuts. Green peanuts have a higher water content so they must be refrigerated upon harvesting to maintain their freshness. Raw peanuts are air dried to lower the water content - this makes raw peanuts less perishable.

Green peanuts are raw peanuts right out of the ground. After they are dried, they are still raw but no longer green. From that stage they can be roasted or soaked and boiled. Peanuts are best boiled green right out of the ground.

AS a former peanut distributor and processor, It is the GREEN peanut that you want to boil!!! RAW peanuts you find in the supermarket are almost always dried and ready for roasting.
