Walton Peanut Variety Description
Walton peanut was jointly released early 2019 by Virginia Tech and the University of Florida.  It is a Virginia-type peanut cultivar with similar good agronomic performance when compared with Bailey, Emery, and Bailey II under “normal” production with superior performance than these cultivars under extreme water deficit conditions.  Seeds are elongated in shape and seed testa color is light pink to pink.  It has dark green foliage; an intermediate growth habit and the main stem is not distinguishable from the lateral branches.  Walton is a high-oleic cultivar  with maturity similar to Virginia-type cultivars developed for the Virginia-Carolina Region.
