Bold Peanuts

Pick up a peanut at random, and in all likelihood, it will be a Runner. Also known as Bold peanuts, Runners are the most common variety in the world, and are grown especially intensively in the Western Hemisphere.

With many similar characteristics to the Virginia peanut, Bold peanuts are used in bulk processing, such as oil crushing, roasting, and blanching.

There are many subspecies to explore, with cropping cycles varying from 120 to 160 days, and they even come in a High Oleic type, which boasts a 30-40% higher monounsaturated fat content.

With a high yield and high demand, large mechanised farming regions have long favoured the Runner. Thanks to their nutty flavour, high protein content, and jumbo size, Runners are a popular snack in the EU, a dominant peanut butter ingredient in the US, and a key source of oil across Asian markets. Even most split peanuts have their uses as a sustainable and nutritious birdfeed.

Bold peanuts come in several subspecies, including

● G20 
● G10  
● Luhua 
● Haihua 
● Florunner 
● Georgia Runner 
● High Oleic
