Senegal is the peanut capital of the world. Peanuts go by various names throughout the world with "goober" or "goober pea" being one of the most popular. Goober is derived from “nguba,” the name for peanut in the Bantu language spoken in parts of Africa. Posted for ZWT 2006. Source: The Africa News Cookbook
