Chile – Hungarian Hot Wax

Don’t let its banana pepper look fool youIt may look like a mild banana pepper, but really the Hungarian wax pepper has a lot more bite. In terms of spiciness, it’s more akin to a jalapeño with a chance for a bit more heat. This is a great chili for all sorts of cooking (including chiles rellenos) and a popular one to top off a salad with or to pickle.

Scoville heat units (SHU): 5,000 – 10,000 Jalapeño reference point: Equal heat to 4 times hotter
