Sweet Pea. ‘Cupani’.
Cupani is a contender for the oldest Sweet Pea variety along with our friend , ‘Painted Lady’
Introduced to the shores of our Sceptred Isles by monk Brother Cupani from Sicily in 1699.
The older sweet pea varieties tend to have short stems and Cupani is no exception…but this is compensated for the fact they have the strongest scent.
In 2020 I shall be growing lots of this aboard my narrowboat, Casper, and will fill the towpath with scent all summer long.
