Groundnut

Usually a peanut (Arachis hypogaea), which presumably originated in South America. Sometimes, however, it refers to the chufa (Cyperus esculentus), a European sedge whose tubers are favored by hogs, or the bamberra groundnut (Voandzeia subterranea), native to tropical Africa, or the hog peanut (earth pea).
