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.


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.”

Schubert

A high oleic Spanish variety developed and released by Texas AgriLife Research in 2013 and commercially available in 2017, is an early maturing (120 days ±) true spanish type. With a seed size smaller than TamNut OL06 and similar to OLin and other true spanish types, yield trial results of higher yields and grades, Schubert looks to perform well in the Southwest. Seed size is “small.”
