Somborckina, organic seeds



Somborckina from Kosovo has  compact growth and produces unusually many fruits. They are broad-shouldered cone shaped, about 8 cm long and have a thick, crispy, good meat.

The fruit goes from light yellow through orange to red when fully ripe. Somborckina can be enjoyed in all stages, but becomes sweeter the redder the fruits become. Then the taste will also be spicier.

It is classified as "hot sweet pepper", but the heat is very weak.

Cultivation advice


Sow indoors just under 1 cm deep 7-8 weeks before setting out, in January-March for cool green houses and in February-April for outdoors peppers! The best germination temperature is 22-30 °C. Let the plants stand in a light airy place and after sprouting preferably at a temperature of 18°C. After getting a few real leaves the sprouts should be planted in pots. The temperature can now be lowered further. Temper the plants successively before setting out. Do not set the plants outdoors before the risk of nightly frost is over and the nightly temperature keeps above 7 °C! Plant them a little deeper than they were in the pots and never allow them to dry out. Do not hurry too much with your sowing if you do not have a really good "nursery". 


30-50 cm between the plants. 50-70 cm between rows.


The fruits are sometimes harvested green but are not fully ripe until they turn red or yellow, orange and brown for some sorts. The plants get new fruits as long as they are harvested.
