How hot are waxy Hungarian peppers

I found this list online where Habanero is the hottest and Bell Pepper is the most mild. The grocery store has these waxy hungarian peppers. Where do they fall into this list? thanks. I peeked online, but I'm not having any luck so far.


Habanero
Thai
Chiltecpin
Santaka
Tabasco
Chilipiquin
Cayenne
Serrano
Chile de Arbol
Jalapeno
Ancho Poblano
Anaheim
Bell Pepper

Waxy Hungarian peppers fall in the middle of the list. As with any pepper, some people remove the seeds to reduce the heat while others leave them in.

Hungarian peppers are sometimes mistaken for banana peppers which are much more mild.

According to the scoville scale on WikiPedia , the Hungarian Wax is about the same as a jalapeno.

2500-8000 scoville units.

.40

Funny though the list I put in the first post makes the Serrano look like it's in the middle, but the paragraph I read from here makes it sound like it's a super hot pepper: Healthnotes | Serrano Pepper

Ya I was getting the impression that it wasn't as hot as the Serrano.

Anything with a seed or rib in it.

I will eat the milder stuffed and baked, grilled or fried peppers as long as they've been seeded and ribbed.

I'm no

Many years ago I was tricked into eating a handful of pickled bar peppers! That was when I learned the virtues of witch hazel in Alvera gel
