Starfish Pepper, Brazilian Starfish, Christmas Bell, Bishops Crown
Origin: Barbados
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterIrritatingEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Very intriguing shape of fruit. Beautiful ornamental plant covered with edible, green and red fruit at the same time, which resemble a Bishop's Crown. This is a very hot pepper, and a very rare variety.

The Brazilian Starfish is a uniquely shaped pepper. This is one beautiful chili with a shape much like a sea star. It’s a lovely quirkiness – sort of an unexpected, but well-appreciated twist to the typical rounded chili – and, because of that, it works very well as an ornamental pepper.

But unlike many ornamentals that sacrifice nuanced taste for looks, the Brazilian starfish is simply delicious too. It is called sometimes "Beautifully Sweet"! They are sweet, almost fruity with an eatable level of heat for most people. Packing looks and flavor makes this chili pepper well sought after by spicy foodies and gardeners alike.

This tall plant has a vine like habit and produces good yields of 1 – 2 inch wide starfish-shaped peppers that ripen to a brilliant red at maturity.
