Varieties

There are about ten species of peanuts, each with several different varieties. However, three varieties are widely produced for consumption: the small, round Spanish peanuts; the medium-sized oval Valencia peanuts, often sold in the shell; and the large Virginia peanuts, which are often found in cans and jars of mixed nuts. All three varieties can be used interchangeably.
