Brazilian Starfish Hot Pepper

Unique, star-shaped fruit. The baccatum pepper species originated in Peru, but this variety was domesticated in Brazil. Brazilian Starfish boasts complex floral and fruity tones that are perfectly offset by medium heat. Expect surprises when snacking on this pepper. The fruit varies in heat but often medium spicy, sometimes exceeding that of jalapeños. Fruit is always juicy and quite sweet. Curious-looking fruit reaches 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.

Review:

These peppers did beautifully in my garden. Like most hot peppers, they produce later in the season. However when the do, they are very prolific. The taste is juicy and mild with a little bit of heat. All of the seeds germinated (with a heat mat), so I gave some plants to friends. They loved them as well. One friend said that they made a beautiful patio plant. I saved some seeds and they have already given me new plants this year!

A fantastic pepper plant
Easy to Grow 4.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Branches break, needs support

Review:

Grew three of these plants in 2018; Started them indoors and transplanted after 30 days of growth. They grew fast, and tall...One plant grew to well over 6 feet tall! However, I had to be quite diligent with keeping them supported, as their branches would break in high winds/storms if not supported.The plants produced until our first frost in November, and they produced hundreds of peppers from 3 plants. The spiciness does vary from pepper to pepper, even on the same plant, but the flavor is fantastic, has a fruity note to it that is unlike most peppers I have grown. Definitely going to be growing these again in 2019.

What are the pros? Fantastic producer

What are the cons? long time to ripen

Review:

Started indoors early for my area, transplanted well in garden. The plant grew huge and taller than all my other varieties (16 varieties total) and it was loaded with peppers.The flavor and shape is unique to this pepper but the heat level varied from pepper to pepper. For me that is fine since I use most of my peppers to make hot sauces. This pepper is easy to clean and prepare. Frost came early this year and had way too many green peppers left on plants. Will grow more than two plants next year.

What are the pros? Taste and prolific production

What are the cons? Long wait for ripe peppers

Review:

I heard about this pepper from various pepper reviews and had to try it. I started them indoors and brought them outside in May. After being transplanted into large containers, they really took off, and seem to be more sensitive to container size compared to some other varieties. The first fruits finally started ripening in late August, but the plants have been very productive. The peppers themselves definitely have variable heat, as the first four peppers I've had so far ranged from very, very mild to much hotter than a jalapeno. Smells ambiguously fruity and kind of like a bell pepper, but the taste is very unique and hard to describe (but I did get some subtle apple flavour after chewing for a few seconds). For best results, I leave the newly ripened peppers on the plant for at least a few extra days to develop more sweetness. The peppers have thick and juicy walls, so they don't turn soft or dry quickly after ripening. Overall a fantastic pepper; just wish it would produce faster!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, great fruit

Review:

Fruit is about ripe jalapeno spicy, but fruity like a habanero. Great chopped up added to salsas or just eaten with the meal.
