Southwest Varieties*


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.

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.”


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.”


A high oleic Runner variety developed by the USDA in conjunction with the Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station and the Oklahoma Peanut Commission. This variety exhibits medium maturity (140 days ±) released in 2016. Lariat is the result of varietal crossing in 2006 with Red River Runner to increase disease resistance, yield, and improve seed germination. In un-managed trials, Lariat demonstrated resistance to Sclerotinia Blight and to Pod Rod, reducing the need for fungicide applications. The seed size is “medium to large” when compared with other runner varieties in the southwest region of the US.



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.”


A high oleic Spanish variety released by USDA-ARS, the Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station, and Oklahoma Peanut Commission. This is a true Spanish type variety with improved yield and disease resistance to Pod Rot and Sclerotinia Blight. A short season variety, OLé is expected to mature in 120 days after planting (DAP) and exhibits “small” seed size. This variety became commercially available in 2016.


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.”


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.
