Default F2 Candy Cane Capsicum

Candy Cane Capsicums were released here in Australia as a variegated Capsicum - an F1 plant that is quite popular. Last year I glued several flowers shut on our plant and this year we're growing two plants from the saved seeds. The F2 variegation is more prevalent on one plant along with the fruit exhibiting more of the white/cream of the variegated fruit. I'm assuming that the color change in the fruit will continue along with the variegated foliage.
Taste wise they are a nice capsicum, so I'm assuming the taste will stay as is, but it doesn't matter all that much.

In the photos you can see the difference between the two plants, the fruit is definitely different, so another year and they will or will not get the chance to show their colors.
