I've found it useful while doing my own research (on Ceratonia) to do
occasional searches through Twitter. This article I found linked to there
mentions Steven Cannon at Iowa State U/USDA having 60 varieties he's been
working on.

I also found this reference to someone breeding some:

A reference to variety 'Nutty', saying it was bred in Louisiana:

This article mentions groundnut breeding wrapping up at LSU and mentions
the "baton being passed" to Steven Cannon at Iowa State.

Hope that helps,
