Onza Rojo-(Capsicum annuum)-The Onza Rojo pepper or Onza Roja pepper is another pepper vanishing from Oaxaca, Mexico. This is happening throughout Mexico and other countries because farmers are being offered more money to grow commercial chiles which means they abandon the Native chiles. The Onza Roja chile is at a high medium heat level but has a fruity sweetness flavor tone but is not overly sweet. Used traditionally fresh in salsa but sold in the markets dried as a seasoning for local sauces like mole. The Onza Rojo chiles average about a half inch in width and just under 3 inches in length. They ripen from green to golden yellow. The Onza Rojo chile plants grow over 4 feet tall. 10+ Seeds
