Brazilian Starfish Hot Pepper

         
 
10 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
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.

What are the pros? Large plants, Very productive

What are the cons? Way too hot, Weird flavor

Review:

I almost feel bad about giving this two stars, but I have to be honest. I just couldn't use these peppers. I wanted to like them. The plants grew beautifully (getting to about 6ft) and produced more peppers than I could use and give away. However, they were blazing hot. Other reviewers here say that they aren't too hot. I beg to differ and I'm a guy who likes spicy. I'm writing this after throwing away 4 jars of them that I'd pickled in the summer. Also, they have this "perfumy" flavor to them (not in a good way). I really just didn't like them. If you like growing peppers for their beauty, however, you can't go wrong with these. The fruits are gorgeous.

Review:

I started these indoors at the end of February, I started getting fruits by late July, it was a slow starter but became very prolific getting to the end of the season. Tasty beautiful fruits, not too hot. I will plant again next year. Vigorous plants, disease free

Review:

I was given a start from a friend, and ended up getting a half-dozen pods before the threat of frost forced me to transplant into a bucket. It has continued to ripen the remaining pods in my basement with only modest watering and ambient fluorescent light. Looking forward to putting this one back out and getting an earlier start on harvesting. Meaty flesh, and decidedly hotter than a jalapeno, closer to a serrano.

Review:

These were the most beautiful and longest lived out of the 10 varieties we grew. We grew them in the greenhouse and they got over 4 feet tall. We picked the last ripe ones in November, long after the other hot peppers had given up in the cold weather. They are my new favorite and I am definitely growing more this year.
