Brazilian Starfish Hot Pepper

         
 
11 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? Shape, Colour, Size, Flavor

What are the cons? Growth Habit

Review:

Grew these in Toronto Ontario on a balcony in 5gl buckets. Hot full sun, water once a day, twice on heatwaves. All items I grow are in containers and all my reviews are bias towards that. These peppers where fun to grow, tasted good "average" and looked fine. had issues with one pack i got then RareSeeds sent me a replacement and it was golden. I did not get a lot of peppers for saving and trying when cooking, mainly used them fresh in salsa or eggs. Only part I did not like was how lengthy the plants got. needs support or will snap under its own weight. i think there are other pepper to grow that pack a bit more bang in terms of flavor. this one will be grown till I run out of seeds. prob wont reorder.

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.
