Virginia Bunch peanut seeds are a variety known for high yields and large-sized kernels.
When grown, these seeds produce peanuts characterized by large, robust kernels, well-suited for a range of uses, from roasting to making peanut butter.
In Australia, Virginia Bunch peanuts are adaptable across different climates but do best in warm, well-drained soil conditions. They also show resistance to common pests and diseases affecting peanuts, such as root-knot nematodes.
In the kitchen, Virginia Bunch peanuts are versatile, ideal for roasting, making peanut butter, or using in cooking. Nutritionally, they provide a good source of protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Peanuts require 5 months of frost free growing. Its best to plant these seeds in well-drained, sandy soil, ensuring they get adequate sunlight. The plants will benefit from proper spacing to allow root expansion. Regular watering is essential, and it's important to keep the soil neither too dry nor too wet.

They haven’t sprouted yet, but they all came intact and together, with a little extra buddy too. Thanks so much for these awesome seeds, we wish you the best in your break!
I have been growing peanuts for 35 years, and always been successful.
I have had only 155 germination, so it is very disappointing.
Planted the peanuts interspaced with corn seeds. Only a few corn and no peanut seedlings emerged. Some were eaten by bandicoots. Only about 50% of the leftover corn seeds eventually germinated when planted individually in tube stocks in a protected environment .
