Really?  I never noticed.  Pity I am not growing them this year.  Enjoy.  Will make a note to check next time in my pea database.  By the way I wonder how many peas in the pod you get?   They are so well filled.   :icon_cheers: :sunny:

Spoke to Real Seeds ( lovely people) and they say they have had another customer contact re Lord Leicester with same thing....they think its related to weather.  What a nice bonus!

I haven't noticed any scent on my peas (will check properly later though) but my potato blossoms smell wonderful. I suppose that's the weather too.
