I grew 2 scotch bonnet peppers this summer and they got shaded out by a tomato plant and didn't get much growth and 0 peppers. I've read that peppers can live 8 years in warmer climates so today, I pulled them both out of the ground and put them in a pot with the hope of having them survive the winter indoors so I can get a jump start on some scotch bonnet peppers next year.

any success doing something like this in the city data ether?

I have never tried it, but have seen others do it with banana and other smaller peppers, even get some indoors. They are self pollinating, but indoors I would help them with some hand pollinating if you get blossoms. My banana peppers had a good yield, the 4 left are starting to turn red so I’ll be picking them soon and pulling the green tomatoes off to ripen indoors. I just picked a nice ripe Black Prince for tonight’s salad, but the rest are all solid green and we are getting down to the high 30s at night.
