I am moving my PA child to a state that produces peanuts. Lots of peanuts! We will be within a short distance of many peanut fields. Are the peanut plant pollens a danger to him? Where can I get information about the peanut pollen count in the area we are moving to. Any ideas or information would be terribly helpful. Thanks!

Do legumes produce a pollen?

Soybeans, peas and green beans all flower. So there would be some pollen. But I live in Iowa...soybean capital....and there is never any talk of soybean pollen...but lots of people have corn pollen problems here.
My daughter recently tested allergic to corn pollen but she can eat corn.

cathlina, I'm like DUH (again to-day [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img] ) I remember now from planting both peas, snow peas and beans that yes, they do flower.
Do peanut plants flower?
I am SO thankful to live somewhere where I don't have to worry about blossoming peanut plants. Honestly.
We do have enough problems with just regular tree pollens.
