Pepper 'Blushing Beauty' F1
2000 AAS Vegetable Award Winner

Blushing Beauty' describes the color changes of this productive sweet bell pepper. On bushy compact plants, peppers gracefully blush from ivory to pink and red as they mature. The thick-walled peppers are sweet at any color. 'Blushing Beauty' peppers can be harvested in about 72-75 days from transplanting. The compact plant reaches a mature height of about 18 inches and is attractive when grown in patio containers. The multiple disease tolerances lengthen plant life for a higher yield of ivory, pink or red sweet peppers.
