Help with pepper identification

karmann177August 10, 2014

Can you help me identify this pepper? I was told it was "a Portuguese pepper" I was hoping it was a Piri Piri plant. It does not appear to be. It looks like a regular jalapeno. The bottom of the pepper seems a little too pointy to be jalapeno though. The playing card shows the size. Thanks for any suggestions.

Thanks for the response. The link posted mentions mature Hungarian wax peppers. Hungarian wax peppers are yellowish when immature. These I have started off dark green. I'm wondering if they are jalapeños. I haven't eaten any because I was hoping for some sort of change in them.

No to Jals in my opinion.

Possibly Jalapeno or Fresno.
HHW start with pale green/yellow.

I agree..not Jals. I tried one of the bigger ones. It was thin walled with about the heat of jalapeno. The taste was mild, probably due to immaturity...
