Runner type peanuts are the largest volume of peanuts grown in the US. This type peanut usually yields the highest pounds per acre at the farm. Runners are a great tasting type, with a small consistent round shape. The size and shape make these peanuts a great value, and preferred by many candy and peanut butter manufacturers.
Georgia dominates growth of Runners, growing far more than any other state. Runners are also grown in NC, SC, FL, MS, AL, TX and OK. 80% of the 2013 crop was Runner type. Runners are smaller in size than Virginia type peanuts. Therefore, we take them 100% out of the shell and roast the kernels.
Runner Type - All Runners are shelled, meaning we knock the shell off them all.
