Georgia 12-Y is a new peanut variety released by the University of Georgia in 2012. I got a good look at them today being plowed up by Stephen Scott on his farm. They are very showy and look like they will yield well. They are disease resistant and have very good vines. This is good soil and they grew big vines. They are reported to be a longer maturity peanut. These are about 148 days old. We are excited about the possibilities of this and a few more new varieties of peanuts. _DSC1095
