There are a bunch of different sorts for this hybrid - some white with pink spots..... some pink with darker pink spots. White with pink spots looks more like 'candy'. Some are white with purplish spots. Various intensity/concentrations of spots.

This one turns pink (late into the bloom).

I really like all of the speckling/spotting on these. Are the blooms fragrant?

Hi sm!! The flowers of this one are fragrant ----- having a nice pleasant scent.

Definitely with you on liking the spotting/speckling and colouring etc of the various outcomes of the cross. I'm going to try look for a white with spots that look like this one at this site here : click here. That one looks like the 'edible' type hahaha. Image linked below too:

In the link at the above site, it does say "C.-Caudebec-Candy.jpg" --- but it really should be CaudAbec Candy.

Interestingly - the company/person that registered the grex Caudabec Candy ------ registered it as CaudAbec Candy. This is not the same spelling as CaudEbec, which is linked to some company that is (or was) named the CaudEbec Group.

Interesting story behind the name of this one. I might look for one of these. I think that I like the pink variety much better than the white one--and glad that you confirmed it's fragrant. Thank you.

Yep, I'd definitely be willing to munch on one of those blooms! Especially a fragrant one.

These flowers are from the same plant as in the opening post - except these flowers are the next batch.

This batch has more spotting - possibly due to plenty of direct sun.

I purchased this plant from South East Queensland, where it is usually cooler than my region (North East Queensland).

The petals and sepals are still changing colour - originally green. The pink/purple colour is starting to build up 2 days after first opening.

Toward the end of the bloom period - the reddish pink colours are back again. Some nice colour differences.
