A combination of Red and Orange Brazilian Starfish peppers. This is an odd looking pepper which sometimes grows up to two inches in width. These peppers originated in Peru but were refined and cultivated in Brazil. This is a mild crunchy pepper which ranges approximately 10,000 to 30,000 SHU.
Its name comes from its shape. The fruit will sometimes grow into the shape of a starfish. When you cut into it is where the shape of a starfish really comes to mind. Perfect for stuffing. If you slice the top off, you can scoop out the seeds and placenta easily. This removes much of the heat and allows you to enjoy the flavor of the pepper with your favorite stuffing.
