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.

Hot and curvy... peppers
Easy to Grow 3.5
EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? Shape, color, heat, taste...

What are the cons? branches breaks easily

Review:

Easy germination, transplant to raise beds. They started producing later than the rest of the peppers I planted at the same time. They grew much taller than I thought (up to 7ft) and I had to give them some support otherwise they would have broken. The leaves are very large and the plant tall so they tend to shade other shorter plants nearby. They produce a lot of small beautiful red pepper with a very nice heat (about Habanero level I would say). The branches tend to break easier than some other plants if you dont handle them carefully but the plant is definitely worth growing.

Review:

I typically start the pepper seeds by the end of January or beginning of February to get them out in the ground by mid-April. We have had an unbelievably wet spring in Northeast Kansas, and plenty of rain this summer. All watering has been by rain only this year. All of my plant markers got sun-bleached (happens every year) and I still don't learn. I thought these were going to be Red Habaneros, but I questioned the weeping nature on the plant. Due to the appearance of the peppers, once they formed, I braced myself upon tasting (somewhat resembled Scotch Bonnets). I only have a lower tolerance for heat. I ended up truly amazed by the sweetness of this pepper. I will grow a lot of these every year. As of today, I've only picked four fully ripened peppers to snack and keep seeds, but the two plants are loaded and about to start turning. Only one of the four peppers left a warmth on my lower lip...no other heat yet. The roots may need to dry out to gain heat. Highly recommend!

Review:

I bought this seed two years ago, and planted it last year and I am so happy with the results! I started 3 seedlings and planted two in the ground and one in a pot. The one in the pot grew the largest, and the two in the ground were a little smaller. All the trees bared so many perfectly shaped peppers. I got about 30 peppers from each plant. I took the potted tree inside my house before the winter and it's stayed alive. It's continued to grow, but doesn't bare any fruit, so as soon as the weather warms up a bit, I'm going to trim it and take it outside for this summer. Honestly though, this pepper is SO EASY TO GROW. Also, it's just such a GOOD TASTING pepper. It isn't two spicy (like a habanero), but still has some heat. I used it in pretty often, in omelettes, stir-fry's and pickling salsa's. I strongly recommend!

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!
