Brazilian Starfish Seeds - Capsicum Baccatum - Delicious, Attractive & Prolific

Quantity: 10 Seeds
Species: Capsicum Baccatum
Scovilles: 5,000 - 30,000


Brazillian Starfish is a fantastic variety of pepper of the baccatum species. Like many baccatums, it can grow quite large; about 5 feet tall, and 3 feet wide. The plant is very prolific; in just one growing season, it can yield over 100 fruits. The pods taste very sweet and fruity, and the heat is mild; it is a perfect snacking pepper for those that crave a little heat. As well as being an excellent choice for fresh eating, the pods dry up to make the most amazing powder or flakes, and they make a great tasting sauce too.


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    It's best to start pepper seeds as early in the season as possible; we start them here on the farm in January. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take between 2-8 weeks to germinate, but they can sometimes take less time too. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher. These peppers grow very well in pots or containers; I recommend 5 gallon pots of larger. Peppers do best when grown in full sun.
