Peanuts are divided into two subspecies, Bunch Type Peanuts (fastigiata type) and Runner Type Peanuts (hypogaea type).

The Bunch Type Peanuts grow upright, produce flowers on the main stem, have sequential branching, and, relative to the other subspecies, mature earlier, have a lower water requirement and produce smaller seeds.

Varieties

Spanish Peanuts and Valencia Peanuts are Bunch Type Peanuts.
