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.

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.

What are the pros? Sweet flesh Hot seeds

What are the cons? Inconsistent shape

Review:

I love these little guys! Gorgeous red color, fascination shape and sweet heat. They sit between a jalape?o and a habanero for heat. So nowhere near some of the superhots, but it holds its own. From what I can taste, almost all the heat is in the seeds. Only bummer is they can be radically different shapes and the “starfish” one is so pretty and that’s the one I love to see!

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.
