Ambrosia bushes are an exotic plant in RimWorld which only naturally occur through the ambrosia sprout event, and therefore can't be grown by the player. A mature ambrosia bush yields 4 pieces of ambrosia fruit.


Ambrosia bushes have a base growing time of 6 days, need a minimum soil fertility of 30%, and have a fertility sensitivity rating of 15%. The following table details how long it takes for Ambrosia to grow in each growable ground type, factoring in the plant resting time and being in ideal growing conditions:

Ground Type Gravel Soil Rich Soil Hydroponics
Fertility (%) 70 100 140 230
Grow Time (days)[1] 8 7.64 7.2 -
Base Yield/day[2] 0.5 0.52 0.56 -
  1. Based on growing from 30%; after each consecutive harvest
  2. Per plant

Food Production

As a food production plant, Ambrosia isn't the greatest despite its decent nutrition output per day, which in turn is owing to ambrosia's very high nutrition per fruit. Ambrosia cannot be made into any meals. The following table shows how many plants it takes to sustain one colonist, but only factors in the nutritional value of the yield; and the yield per day:

Ground Type Gravel Soil Rich Soil Hydroponics
Raw 16 16 15 -
Lavish[1] - - - -
Paste - - - -

  1. Also applies to 100% vegetarian simple meals and packaged survival meals
  2. Also applies to pemmican


The ambrosia bush's raw product is ambrosia, which has a market value of 15 silver. Ambrosia can't be made into any refined products. The following table details silver per day, per plant. It only factors in the 50% selling markdown; the market value of the products; and the yield per day:
