I saw your response below about tomatoes and peppers. My mother lived close to Houston,Tx and had a Jalapeno pepper plant that looked more like a small tree. She had it for several years, covered it if it frosted with a tarp. It was large around the trunk. It was the first and only pepper plant that lived more than a single season I had known of.

Maybe I can find which ones do, but some kinds will always live over the winter, if it's warm enough. Probably the folks in S. Texas can tell us, I'm in Tn, but have frequently brought in a few plants for winter, including peppers. They have to be hand-pollinated to make any more peppers, but they keep on blooming, given enough light. I really bring them in to ripen what's already on the plant, green.

Thanks for the reply, I like growing pepper, it's so simple. I used to eat a lot of them but the older I get my system can't take much of them.We cook with them tho. May try to bring some in this winter, got them out late. IF we don't wash away first. Too much rain too fast.

Yeah, a lot of rain here too. Onions are the only thing in my garden that I'm worried about, they really need more sun, less water right about now.

Forgot: The ones I grow are Cayenne and I used to have the little 1/2 inch Hot Thai pepper. Sometimes they last all winter and get set back outside.
