Where To Find Virginia Peanuts?

Q: Do you know where to locally purchase Virginia peanuts to plant in my garden? 

A: Jimmy Adams at Adams-Briscoe Seed (abseed.com) in Jackson says he can supply a couple of different varieties in homeowner quantities. He is quick to caution that these are not edible peanuts; they are treated to resist disease before planting. Homegrown peanuts do not keep easily from year to year, so most folks use treated goobers to grow in their garden. If you really want untreated peanuts, Southern Exposure Seed Exchange (southernexposure.com) has several untreated varieties.
