Hungarian wax pepper

The Hungarian wax pepper is a medium variety of Capsicum annuum with a Scoville Scale range of 5,000 to 15,000 Scoville units.
Description

A pepper of medium pungency which is usually harvested in several states of maturity. It measures between 4"-6" inches in length (100mm-150mm) and tapers from the top to a rounded point yielding an appearance similar to a banana pepper. The most typical harvest occurs when the pepper is in a yellow and mildly sweet state. As the pepper matures, it develops a waxy sheen, the color changes into a bright red and becomes slightly more pungent. In this state, it is either sold fresh or dried and crushed to create Paprika.
