Also known as the Turkish Star, this Capsicum chinense is one of the only to form a star like shape. The flattened star shape is not predominant, but does show itself occasionally. More often the pod shape forms ridges such that if you look at it from top down or bottom up, the appearance of a star is present.
The Star of Turkey pepper has a unique almost tomato aroma. Very thick walls and a good crunch when ripe, these are an excellent alternative to more traditional and common habanero type peppers.
