'Blushing Beauty' describes the color changes of this productive sweet bell pepper that changes color like fall maple leaves. 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 and are prized for stuffing and easy to cut for fresh salads. '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.
