Technical Abstract: ‘Phillips’ is a large-seeded Virginia-type peanut (Archis hypogaea L. subsp. hypogaea var. hypogaea) cultivar with a high yield of bright fancy pods and the cultivar processing alternate branching pattern, intermediate runner growth habit, medium green foliage, large seeds with tan testa averaging 835 mg seed-1, approximately 34% jumbo pods and 45% fancy pods. Phillips is an F5-derived line selected from a cross between two early maturing NCSU breeding lines. A standard Virginia type, Phillips had similar pod yield and fancy pod content but greater jumbo pod content, jumbo pod brightness, fancy pod brightness, average pod brightness, extra large kernel (ELK) content, sound mature kernel content, and meat content, and crop value at federal support price. Adjusted to common values of roast color and fruity attribute, intensity of the roasted peanut attribute of flavor in Phillips was not different from that in NC 7 (3.36 vs. 3.54 flavor intensity units), the flavor standard for the Virginia market-type, but intensity of the sweet attribute was higher (3.45 vs. 2.70 fiu, and that of the bitter attribute lower 2.30 vs. 2.73 fiu. Phillips is adapted to the Virginia-Carolina peanut production area but also has performed well in the southeastern US production area including Georgia, Florida, and Alabama.
