Finally found some orange manzano pods at a mexican supermarket here in missouri and i must say i love the flavor and scent with just the right amount of heat, I will be saving the seed to grow a few plants this summer

One Mexican market near me has the large orange Manzano too. Around $6/lb. I haven't tried them yet.

Xalapeños and manzanos are big sellers in Méjico for a very good reason, they are delicious.

Over the summer the Sav-Mor in Corning, California had manzanos for $5/lb.  I bought 2 lbs. That Sav-Mor does cater to the local mexican population.  I did notice that the fine print on the small sticker on each pepper stated that they had been irradiated. Don't know if the seeds will grow but plan to see if they do germinate.  Last month a Safeway in Redding, CA had orange manzanos for $7/lb. but they did not look good- many were bruised and soft. I passed on those.

Worth trying to grow them... seems like a decent chance it will work
