Unexpected red peppers are growing instead of the yellow peppers I thought I had planted.

Yellow peppers ended up red

I have been saving the seeds from the yellow peppers that I have been growing and then using them to start new plants the next season. I was successful with this last season, but this season the peppers are turning out red. One plant is yellow which is really strange since all the seeds I am using came from the same pepper.

I think I understand why this is happening. With the succession of planting, I have bred it back to its original state, I guess. I really don't know a lot about this. I am mostly learning about gardening by trial and error. Feel free to comment on this if you know something.

Nice red peppers are also wonderful. The problem is that I promised friends yellow pepper plants and they are now finding out the plants are producing red peppers instead
