The Hungarian Yellow Wax Pepper, ‘Capsicum annuum’, is an Old World favorite that is the perfect pick for pickled peppers and pepper jelly. This pepper is also known as the Hot Banana Pepper which it is not but it is closely related. The Hungarian Yellow Wax pepper was developed in Hungary and has a waxy color that resembles bees’ wax. The Wax peppers are actually orange-red when ripe, but are usually pickled while still yellow. Hungarian Yellow Wax peppers have thin walls and the peppers are usually used fresh in salads, pickled, fried, canned or roasted. Hungarian wax peppers are medium hot, with heat scores that range between 5,000 and 15,000 Scoville heat units.
