Harvesting Cupani Seeds

Cupani sweet pea seeds. Perhaps you know them. These are home grown.

  • small muted seeds black like peppercorns
  • deep purple lavender blossoms
  • a scent that is oh so sweet

But first, from bone dry nutmeg colored pods, I harvest and think of other gardens where these seeds took root.

This feels like starting over again. It feels good.


The Cupani’s ancestry is from 17th century Sicily when Fr. Francis Cupani discovered them and sent some to England.
