1. Nonpareils are medium-sized uniform kernels with light colored skins. They have relatively smooth exteriors with a classic oval shape. They are a standout variety in California.
2. Carmels have darker brown skins and elongated kernels. They are richer in flavor than the Nonpareil. They have deeper wrinkles on the exterior, and are well-suited for roasting.
3. Independence varieties are similar to Nonpareil, with the color and flavor of Carmel. They are a recent introduction to California production.
