Hi - I have had a super crop of broad beans - at least a crop of large beautifully green pods - but inside the pod there is a mass of white fur but no beans. What have I done wrong. They were planted in a raised bead - rich in humus and manure - regularly watered - well grown plants with masses of fruit.



Pods haven't had a chance to grow the actual beans yet? We got big pods on the first lot of our broad beans but when I feel them the beans are a week or more away from being ready.

Did you know you can eat the pods if you pick them young? The fur on the inside of the pod disappears when you cook them and I find them actually nicer than the beans themselves.

How do I say thanks?
