This list could get seriously long, but it would mostly be peppers many people haven't heard of or used OR varieties of peppers already listed like habs and ajis.

Fish Peppers
Lemon Peppers
Hinkelhatz
Vietnamese Black Dragons
Kung Pao
Rain Forest Peppers
Datil Peppers
Mirasols
Hungarian Wax
Mulato
Banana Peppers
Goat's Weed
Wild Boonie
Fatali
Trinidad Scorpion
Medusa
Tangerine Dream
Dancing Spirit
Bolivian Rainbow
Yatsafusa

Edit (09-22-11): I meant to write Lemon Drop Peppers...I missed the "drop".

Yeah, honestly just more to eliminate (re: ones we haven't heard of), so I'll trust you to include the "important" ones. I haven't heard of the majority of these already.

I know lemon peppers, heard of VBDs, can guess at Kung Pao, know Hungarian Wax and Bananas, and that's all I got on the second list. There are a surprising number of ones I don't know on the first, too!

This may be less of an EG and more of a shopping list. ;)

mmmmmmm, peppers.

Sorry for the lack of clarity on the list.  Most of those would be obscure to the masses, except for maybe the Lemon Drop, Hungarian Wax, Banana, and Datil.  It's probably best to leave most of the others off.  Kung Pao, Vietnamese Black Dragon, and Fish Peppers aren't terribly obscure but I doubt they would last long on the list.  
The Vietnamese Black Dragons are called Hairy Peppers by the Vietnamese (their leaves are kind of fuzzy).
