Bell peppers that aren't green?

I purchased a variety pack of sweet bell pepper seeds, in a multitude of colors.  I've got one plant that I noticed is producing pale yellow bell peppers and the baby peppers are not green, they're pale yellow!  Has anyone else seen or grown peppers like these?  Every other variety I've grown starts out as green and turns to the other color (red, bright yellow, orange, purple) when it's ripe.

some peppers end up a different color than they start out.  I am not very familiar with peppers though so thats all I know.

Wow, I learned something new today!  The Blushing Beauty pepper starts out pale yellow/ivory and turns red as it matures, so that's what I've got!

 So you found a site for the name.  What does the pepper taste like?  Or is it too soon yet?  I only planted green peppers.  Now I am curious about yours.  You bought seed you say?

I bought a variety pack of seed from Gurney's.  I haven't tasted it yet because it's still "green".

I love colored peppers, they are so sweet. I believe that is very normal for your variety.

 I love the different bell peppers. I havent grown any yet. What kind of soil do they like?
