This program provides the sensory data that is included among the criteria considered when a cultivar release is contemplated. The result is the release of lines with superior flavor profiles, or at least not diminished profiles. It is not possible to ascribe improved price or sales to improvement of flavor, nor is it possible to assert that the release of cultivars with superior flavor results in greater market share for virginia-type peanuts, but processors of peanuts insist that flavor is their overriding concern. As long as we can obtain funds to continue the program, we will do so.
