Star of Turkey
Türkiye Yıldızı=Star of Turkey
The star on the Turkish flag is no longer a virtual star. This is a real star shaped pepper comes from Turkey. This is the only pepper in the C.Chinense family that looks like real star. Very hot, way hotter than the Brazilian starfish, which is from the C.Baccatum family. This thick walled, firm, crunchy pepper does extremely well in storage and last for weeks before going soft. The pods have strong C.Chinense floral taste followed by slowly building sharp painful heat that lingers around for a long time.
