    Are you planting them outside? They will live until the end of the growing season, probably early fall. They are not perennial.

    The plant will die every winter when the temperature goes down. In Europe we have to reseed it in spring under glass and plant out in bigger pots same with peppers or small cherry tomatoes in the greenhouse or closed porch.

    True in most places they will last until the first cold snap you get. You didn’t say where you are though. I’m in southern california. Here I replant peppers every year, but some of my chilis are 2 or 3 years old and are coming back very well. Chilis can be overwintered in a greenhouse or outdoors in a mild winter climate. The trick is to cut them back heavily in the late fall.

    Peppers and chilli’s are perennial plants. They originated in the tropics and will live for years in a frost free location. In northern climates of course they die with every fall freeze, so many folks think they are annuals. I have a Habanero plant that is going on it’s seventh year and still produces heavily.
