Gambo Chili Seeds
Info: The Gambo chili is a very delicious and fleshy apple pepper which is excellent for stuffing with mince or for pickling. The bushy plants produce numerous fleshy and juicy red peppers which reach a size of approx. 5 x 8 cm and are apple-shaped. They are excellent for fresh consumption, in salads and as snacks, but are also a great variety for stews of all kinds, and for grilling.
Care: The germination temperature is between 20 und 28°C (8 - 20 day germination period), therefore the use of a greenhouse and a heating mat is recommended. The plants need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil, and do not tolerate waterlogging. They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more. Put the plants outside approx. 2 to 3 weeks after the last frost.
Tips for successful chili cultivation can be found in our Chili Cultivation Instructions and in the Chili Diary.
