Similarly, do chilli plants regrow?

What most people do not know is that chilli plants are in fact perennials and will continue to produce fruits for many years of growing, provided a little care and attention is taken. This extra care and attention after your plants have fruited is called over-wintering and can be very rewarding…

One may also ask, can chilli plants last more than one year? The reason they are usually grown as annuals is because the winter temperatures in most places will kill them. They are semi-tropical plants, and just cannot handle cold weather. However, it is possible to keep a pepper plant alive for several years, via a technique known as "overwintering".

Beside this, can you keep chilli plants over winter?

Freezing temperatures kill chillies, so the plants must be overwintered in a frost-free environment. Keeping them in an unheated greenhouse or polytunnel won't work, so don't even think about it. The temperature, however, doesn't have to be overly warm since the plants need only to survive, not thrive.

Do chili plants die?

But it's always sad to see these lovely ornamental plants shrivel up and die when Winter sets in. Well it used to be sad, before we began growing our Chilli plants as perennials. Although Chillies are actually perennial plants, because the cold temperatures normally kill them off, most people plant them as annuals.
