DescriptionGeorganic is runner market-type in seed and pod size. It has a spreading runner growth habit with an erect mainstem that is prominent throughout the growing season, and at harvest. It has a high level of resistance to tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), early (Cercosporidium arachidicola Hori), and late (Cercosporidium personatum Berk. & M.A. Curtis) leaf spot. It is a late maturity class peanut, with about 150 days needed for optimal maturity. Based on seed count per pound, Georganic is intermediate between the relatively large seeded cultivar, C-99R, and the relatively small seeded cultivar, Georgia Green. Georganic has a red testa (seed coat) with percent meat comparable to other runner cultivars. Georganic had significantly higher resistance to TSWV than the moderately resistant cultivar, Georgia Green, in 24 out of 24 field trials. In six field studies using reduced fungicides, C11-2-39 had significantly less leaf spot severity and significantly higher yield in comparison to the moderately resistant cultivar, Southern Runner.
