While generally considered perennials (with overwintering in cold regions), bell peppers are generally grown and treated as annuals. In warmer locations that are frost free, it is possible, wtih pruning, to extend their lifespan, though doing so doesn't offer any special rewards. Generally, after 6 months, the plants begin to look ragged.
