Southwest Varieties

Runners

Georgia 09B

A high oleic, Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus resistant, medium maturity Runner variety (140 days ±) released in 2009 by the University of Georgia Agricultural Experiment Station in Tifton, Georgia. This variety was developed from the first backcross between Georgia Green and a high oleic parent. The high oleic oil chemistry gives this variety a longer shelf life in processed peanut products. The seed size for this variety is “medium”, meaning it is typically similar to other Runner varieties in the southwest.

Florida-07

Released by the University of Florida, this is a later maturing (150 days ±) large seeded high oleic Runner variety. This variety has dark green foliage with a prominent center stem. It has excellent resistance to Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus, with some resistance to White Mold and tolerance to Leaf-spot and is a high yielding variety. Due to its later maturity, Florida-07 is best suited for the South Texas peanut area in the Southwest. Seed size is typically larger than other runner varieties in the Southwest.

FloRun™ 107

Released by the University of Florida, this is a medium to late maturing (145 days ±) high oleic Runner variety. It has very good resistance to Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus and White Mold, but is susceptible to Leaf-spot and is a high yielding variety. The seed size is “medium” and is similar to that of Georgia 09B.

TamRun OL11

Released by Texas AgriLife Research in 2011, this is a medium maturing (140 days ±) high oleic Runner variety. In variety trials the TamRun OL11 showed higher grades than any Runner variety previously released by Texas AgriLife. It is well suited for West Texas peanut production and has a higher tolerance to Sclerontinia Blight than most varieties. Seed size is “medium.”

Webb

Released by Texas AgriLife Research in 2012, it is the first high-oleic, nematode resistant Runner peanut variety released by the program. It is a medium maturing (140 days ±) high oleic Runner variety. It has moderate resistance to Sclerontinia Blight and should be suited for production in all areas of the Southwest. Seed size is “medium.”

Red River Runner

A medium to late maturing (145 days ±) high oleic Runner variety suited for Southwest production. Development was a result of the Southwest High Oleic Peanut Research Program, supported in part by both the Oklahoma Peanut Commission and the Texas Peanut Producers’ Board. Participants in the program include the USDA ARS (Stillwater), Texas A&M University, and Oklahoma State University. The original cross was made in 1997 at College Station, Texas. This variety has improved tolerance to TSWV and Sclerontinia Blight compared to other Southwest Runner varieties. Seed size is “medium.”


Spanish

AT-9899™

Released by Golden in 2004, this is a medium maturing (140 days ±) high oleic Spanish market type variety. Growth habit resembles Runner varieties with spreading vegetative development and pegging from the limbs. It is not resistant to TSWV. With a tendency to produce a prolific number of pods, yield potential is excellent in sandy soils. Seed size is “small.”

TamNut OL06

Released by Texas AgriLife Research in 2006, this is an early to medium maturing (135 days ±) high oleic Spanish type variety. It produces a large Spanish kernel, similar in size to a runner. Maturity is a few days longer than previously released Spanish varieties from Texas AgriLife. Yield potential is good in West Texas and Oklahoma. Seed size is “medium.”


Virginia

Florida Fancy

Released by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station, this is a medium maturing (140 days ±) high oleic Virginia type variety. Growth habit tends to resemble Runner varieties and has excellent yield potential, especially in sandy soils. This variety exhibits good TSWV resistance for Virginia type peanut varieties. Pod size is not typically as large as Gregory. Seed size is “large” among all types.

AT-VC2

Released by AgraTech seed and available exclusively through Golden, this is a medium maturing (140 days ±) high oleic Virginia type variety. Pod size tends to be smaller than Florida Fancy or Gregory. Best suited for West Texas irrigated farming practices it has high yield potential. Seed size would be “medium” among all types.
