Additionally, why are sport peppers called sport peppers? A small green hot pepper pickled in vinegar, similar to a pepperoncini but always smaller. Sport is a botanical term for a sort of plant mutation and sports are sometimes used as the basis for a new cultivar of a species so it's likely that the original sense of the name was "mutant pepper".

Are sport peppers hotter than jalapenos?
As a viable range, consider the serrano's heat range of 10,000 to 23,000 Scoville heat units as a typical sport pepper range. That's equal heat to jalapeño and up to nine times hotter. Though there can be a larger spread than this depending on the chili used.
