What type of Peppers are these?

I'm growing lots of container veggies, etc this year. I planted (or so I thought) 3 little tiny jalepeno plants. Well, two are looking and acting like jalepenos, with small, dark green peppers. Then there's this one! This particular photo was taken about 2 weeks ago, and currently the peppers are about 6" in length, but the same color. I'm thinking someone at the nursery switched the name stakes!
Can anyone tell me what kind of peppers I have?
(I bet kleenex will know!)
Thanks, all!

I only grow red and yellow bells and mild Italian long green. But these remind me of the yellow banana peppers I've seen at the market..

Yeah. Banana peppers or yellow wax peppers, the latter being hotter. Maybe.

I have a garden full of banana peppers and they are greener, pointier and don't grow upward like that.


Look at the "Unripe Tabasco peppers" on this page:

Could that be what they are?

Great pepper site, jennyema! I now know that I want some peruvian purples!
The tabasco peppers seem to be growing upwardly in singles, but mine are clumped together.

6" in length!?!?!?!?

A tabasco pepper grows that long?????

How about 2 inches max in length for a Tabasco.

Could they be a NuMex Sunglow Hot Pepper

I just checked my Dave DeWitt Chili Pepper Encyc. (duh). There's a black and white picture in there that looks like yours. It's labeled "Hungarian Yellow Wax Hot chile." His leaf description looks like yours, too. Says they're prolific with long growing season.

Kleenex, the photo is small, but I enlarged it a bit and it does look very much like my peppers! Thanks!

And, as a lovely parting gift, here you go:

habanero lollipops.

Oh, dear. One thing no one has mentioned, that I've seen, is that peppers cross-polinate VERY EASILY. I'm not kidding, super easily. You can very well wind up with a variety that is un-named, no matter what the nursery thought they were selling you. My husband had seeds for peppers he just loved. One year he harvested the seeds and we got really oddball peppers that looked nothing like the peppers he harvested them from. I mean, these were up-growing peppers, yellow in color. The peppers the second year were totally different. If you want to play Darwin, grow peppers, because you can really finagle with evolution.
