Along with agronomic and grade information, data on kernel and pod quality are essential for release of new peanut cultivars to ensure acceptability by the entire peanut trade. The present report contains the quality data collected on 5 Virginia-type commercially available cultivars and 25 advanced breeding lines tested in the Peanut Variety and Quality Evaluation (PVQE) small plots in 2014. The small PVQE plots with 36 varieties were tested at five locations in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina: Suffolk, VA, Martin Co., NC, Rocky Mount, NC, Bladen, NC, and Blackville, SC. At Suffolk, VA, and Martin Co., NC, two Digs were achieved. For the other locations, only one Dig was tested. Each genotype was replicated 2 times at each location and Digging date. Varieties’ names and pedigree are presented in Table 1. A detailed description of the plant material, test locations, weather conditions, and cultural practices is included in the PVQE 2014 Results.
