These “Long Life” tomatoes can be singled out on the market due to their distinctive colour and remarkable longevity.

What is the secret of the quality of GAMBÍN tomatoes?

The attention to detail when treating internal procedures and the detailed analysis of the external conditions, are a big part of the success of the GAMBÍN tomato. Our agronomists work from the seedbed onwards, and they continuously implement a precise action plan on the farms whilst the plants are growing. This, in order to adapt crops to the surrounding climate changes. They adjust plant growth constantly to the environment and in order to achieve good results, they rely on the data identified during previous campaigns. Observing, processing and correcting, each activity is synchronized to find the best solution to each issue.

During the last months, the average temperature has been higher, as well as the relative humidity. In addition, there was a drop in temperature in November, something that however has not affected the product. The plants did not suffer any physiological breakdown thanks to the application of the internal procedures carried out to prevent casualties. A significant advantage was found in the daylight conditions of Almeria, a benefit of the geographical location.
