I'm with kadesma - sure look like banana peppers to me, too. But, I have forwarded the pic to my daughter-in-law and I'll let you know what she thinks when I hear back from her ... and she knows her peppers!

Looks like Hungarian Hot Wax to me...that's a great pepper. I used to sell lots of them out of the greenhouse.
Try slicing them into rings and canning them...they are great on sandwiches.
As for someone switching the tags...probably wasn't nursery employees. People used to pick plants up, pull the tag out to read, then stick it back wherever. They'd also pick containers of plants up, then set them back in the wrong trays.
What I finally did was to display the hot peppers on one side of the greenhouse, and sweet ones on the other. I also displayed one variety of peppers, one variety of tomatoes, peppers, tomatoes, etc. in order to try to keep things straight.
We still ended up with strays, though. If I didn't know what they were, I gave them away to some of my gardeners who had some extra room.

Right now we are experimenting in new colors for peppers. This year at one of the grocery stores I go to I found white, chocolate,and purple bell peppers for sale.

I saw for sale in an ad for lilac colored bell peppers. I have also seen Chocolate Habanero seeds for sale.

I just love new varities!!!!

Constance, you may be onto something.I went outside and noticed a tiny blush on the tip of the largest pepper this morning. And, I just googled the hungarian hot wax pepper and it said it's maturity color is red. ....hmmmmmmmmm!

My guess is Hungarian Wax too. We grew some of them a few years ago, and that is what they looked like. They do get red, but it takes good sun and patience sometimes for them to turn. They are still perfectly edible when yellow.

Not terribly hot, but good flavor. As I recall, they were good sauted with sliced zuchini and yellow squash.

I'm going to vote for Hungarian Hot as wll, since they look just like the ones we have in our garden.

We like to pick them just when the tip starts to turn, and the rest of the pepper is bright yellow. They're really good mixed in with refridgerator dills, and also if pickled with the brine for bread & butter pickles...
