Along with agronomic and grade information, data on kernel and pod quality are essential for release of new peanut cultivars to ensure acceptability by the entire peanut trade. The present report contains the quality data collected on 5 Virginia-type cultivars that currently are on the market and 20 advanced breeding lines tested in the Peanut Variety and Quality Evaluation (PVQE) small plots in 2021. Blanching evaluations were determined by a laboratory sample blancher of two, 250 g peanut samples from two dig dates at Martin Co., NC, and the Tidewater AREC. Tables 2 through 19 contain blanching data for the extra-large kernels (ELK) and medium-size kernels. Statistical analyses were determined for percentage of splits, whole blanched, not blanched, and partially blanched. Oil profile is reported in tables starting with Table 22.
