About Brazilian Starfish

90 days. Delicious and sweet, with a strawberry-apple flavor, the flattened 2” star-shaped fruits change from green to red. Adds a fruity taste to chilis and salsas. In Peru they flavor fish dishes; in Columbia and Ecuador they are made into a condiment. Plants have a weeping, vine-like habit. Heat varies from 5,000 to 30,000 SHU.
