Also known as the Ubatuba Cambuci pepper or Ubatuba pepper, the Cambuci pepper is a rare variety from Brazil with a unique shape similar to a bell shape, like the Bishop Crown pepper, but with less heat and more sweetness.

The pepper plant will grow to 3 ft. tall and produce these distinctly shaped, 3" long pepper pods. Ubatuba Cambuci peppers ripen from yellow, orange, and finally bright red when mature.

You may taste a bit of heat with a spicy flavor at first, but then it will simmer down with fruity sweetness. To be more detailed, its wings have a sweeter flavor and its body has a more mild hot flavor. The Cambuci pepper has an apple-like crunch and a light, crisp flavor, and is excellent to use for salads, sandwiches, stuffing, salsas, sauces, jam, and more!

Fun Fact: Ubatuba is a beach town in San Paulo, and Cambuci is a city located in Rio de Janeiro!

None germinated

I would love if I could review the pepper itself, but none of the seeds that I ordered have germinated for me. I've tried a variety of methods and none have worked. Very disappointed as we love peppers and have great success with them year after year and this year I decided to splurge on ordering a large variety from pepper joes.

Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85*. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
