Runner-type Peanut Variety
Description: ‘AP-4’ is a medium maturity, large seeded peanut variety with good resistance to tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV). The variety has a competitive pod yield and excellent seed grade. ‘AP-4’ has demonstrated very good pod yield potential. ‘AP-4’ has moderate resistance to white mold. Plants of ‘AP-4’ have a prostrate growth habit with a semi-prominent main stem typical of runner cultivars. In Florida under irrigation, ‘AP-4’ requires approximately 135 days after planting to mature and is considered to have medium relative maturity. The seed weight of ‘AP-4’ is larger than the historical runner market-type. In five years of trials compared to Georgia Green, ‘AP-4’ had fewer medium and more jumbo kernels.
