Arachis montiola is a wild peanut relative, closely related to A. duranensis, found in Argentina. It is used in some interspecies mapping crosses. As only other tetraploid species in the genus Arachis in addition to A. hypogea (cultivated peanut), it may be the result of the polyploidy event that led to A. hypogea, and thus may be the direct ancestor of cultivated peanut.

Arachis stenosperma Krapov. & W.C. Greg. is a wild peanut relative native to central Brazil, in the past it was cultivated by native peoples of South America, and was carried to the Atlantic coast, where populations persist to the present day. It is a source of strong pest and disease resistance and has been used by peanut breeders and geneticists in interspecific hybrids. [more]

In the U.S., peanuts are an important crop in the U.S. southeastern states and southeastern states, partly due to the work of the African-American botanist George Washington Carver, who in the 1920s and 1930s promoted them as an alternative crop... [more]
