Southern Exposure, offers this description: "110 days. A rare heirloom black-skinned peanut from North Carolina. Introduced in 1999 by SESE from seed sent by Derek Morris. One of the varieties grown during the 1800's was the 'African' peanut (also known as the 'North Carolina' peanut). It may have been a black peanut."
