Thanks for the information. It just seemed to me that sport peppers must have an actual name other than sport pepper, and from photos I thought they resembled serranos.



They are a specific cultivated variety, or cultivar, of Capsicum annuum.

Yes, I'm aware of that. What I wanted to know is which "specific cultivated variety." I'm sure the specific cultivated variety has a name, and it's not sport pepper.

They are serrano peppers, pickled. The best ones I've got is from Fluky's in Chicago. Got some from Chicago Red Hots and they were too big.  The ones from Fluky's were not as hot as a jalapeno.

Tasty hot, not killer hot.
 
Mostly vinegar hot like a pepperoncini.

There is no such thing as a specific pepper called a sport pepper.  A sport pepper is basically any young, small (1 inch to 1 1/2 inch, light green flesh pepper that is medium in heat.  It is only a sport pepper after it's been put in a vinegar or salt and vinegar brine.  Capsicum annum varieties are common as sport peppers and grown a lot in the south.  Here in California, our palates are spicier so we use casabellas on the side, not on our food.  Young pepperchinis are big on the east coast.  Serrano's are to dark and hot to use as a sport pepper.
