Brazilian Starfish Hot Pepper

Unique, star-shaped fruits are of variable heat, sometimes exceeding that of jalapenos, yet juicy and often quite sweet. (Carefully removing the seeds eliminates most of the heat as well.) Curious-looking fruits reach 2" in width, ripening to brilliant red at maturity. Plants are vigorous and unusual, having an almost weeping, vine-like habit. Slow to yield but, by the end of the season, amazingly prolific. The species originated in Peru, but this variety was domesticated in Brazil.

Review:

Awsome plant! Terrible year here for peppers. This one was one of only a few I had superb results with. Grew it more as a curiosity then anything else but as already mentioned in other reviews, yield was amazing, fruity flavor is enjoyable and heat levels are nice but not scorching. Gonna stick with this one.

Review:

Grew these as a curiosity. Bad year for peppers my way but these performed regardless. Love the flavor. Sweet and almost floral. Nice vigorous plants. Heat is pleasant. I've been eating them fresh as they mature. Can't quite reach the kitchen.

Review:

I've grown Brazilian Starfish peppers for 3 years. They do best in a sunny location. The plants are tall & leggy, with lots of stem between side branches. When young, the plants need support from a stake or trellis, the stems are brittle and can break in a strong breeze. As the plants mature the stems become woody and much stronger. As an experiment, I have a dozen plants growing on a large trellis against our kitchen wall. They get bright, shaded light and have grown 10 to 12 feet up, into the eaves. Those plants aren't heavy producers, but they form a nice wall of vegetation, like ivy. The biggest downside has been a fungal blight that attacks the leaves of all the peppers in this area when the weather gets hot. The only way to save the plants is daily pruning of infected leaves and weekly spraying with a Neem oil & soap solution. The Neem oil really perks up the plants and suppresses the blight, but only for a while. A lovely pepper, with a lot of variability in heat between pods.
