Wynne Peanut is an improved, Virginia-type peanut that produces large seeds that are great for boiling or roasting. This is a great variety to grow in the backyard garden to produce delicious, home-grown peanuts. Plants have a bush growing habit and are generally upright, usually reaching about 1.5 feet tall. Wynne is a productive variety that produces a significantly high percentage of jumbo pods. The majority of pods will have at least two peanuts, and plants will average about 120-130 peanuts per plant. Wynne Peanut was released in 2013 by a breeding program at NC State University. It combines exceptional productivity with a broad-range of disease resistance which includes Black Rot, Blight and Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus. It also has a high oleic acid content, which allows for longer storage potential after harvest.

Wynne Peanut should be planted in spring after the last frost. Peanuts grow best in well-drained soil and seeds should be planted about 4″ apart, 1.5″ deep along the row. One pound of seed should be sufficient for planting a 100′ row. Peanuts have a long date-to-maturity and need at least 4-5 months of frost-free weather to mature properly. Peanuts may be planted with a walk-behind planter like our Hoss Garden Seeder. We suggest using a #6 seed plate and modifying the hole size to match the seed being planted. Peanuts will need adequate water throughout the warm growing season. As a result, drip irrigation is a great option for peanuts. We suggest burying drip tape and planting double rows on each side of the tape. Minimizing leaf moisture will tremendously help to reduce disease pressure.
