I grew Cambuci pepper in 2015 that looked like your Brazilian Starfish. It was sweet not hot, as productive as one you showing. The only thing I am noticing different that the pods were facing down and on your picture they are facing up. We liked them grilled, brings sweetness in them.
The seeds were from Tatiana's TOMATOBase.
Are Brazilian Starfish sweet or hot?

Sweeter than hot, but they do have some spice.

I had two plants in ground and one in container. All 3 were absolutely not hot. The taste was similar to banana peppers. They were all super productive, except in container the plant was shorter. Our summer was not too hot, and I watered them often. Plus I had spider mites attacking my tomatoes and cucumbers and sprayed everything with soap and DE which adds more water and reduces evaporation. Maybe under different conditions they get some hotness.

Have you grown Starfish? Then why did you ask?

Cambuci, like Starfish, often starts its pods upright. Then as they get larger they bend over to become pendant. There are several in this group that are hard to distinguish, e.g. Bishop's Hat or Bishop's Crown.

Here are (from left to right):
Slavko, Othello, Vnuchok.
All F1 seeds. All suppose to be sweet, not bitter varieties. We have heat advisory 3 days in a row and Vnuchok end was a bit bitter. Disappointed. Plus, it should be dark green and it is lighter than other varieties. Production is ok but not as it is in the picture on the website. It does taste good. Sliced they all look similar, not like your cucumbers, Gerardo.
So, I tried the seeds from Nikitovka seeds and not impressed.

Eggplant? OK,if you insist.

I like it fried ,also part of what I call a summer stew, just go to the garden and pick what's ripe,tomatoes,peppers,onions,some herbs, simmer slowly,THEN add some great cheese and let it melt. Delicioso,if that's a word,Lettuce hope so.

thanks for the input dmforciet, I've yet to taste the Starfish.

efisakov: too bad the cukes didn't turn out as advertised. as usual I would argue.

I just sowed a 3rd wave of garden sweet, lemon, diva (again), eureka, slice more; can't get enough of lemonade/cucumber concoction.

Just a few Carolyn, not going too crazy, enough to feed Guinea pigs and us through the winter. No winter tomatoes this time.
Tubes will be converted to full hydroponic, it should be fun.

Check out this 496g Larisa.

plus the sunflowers are saying hello
