You can dig them up, carefully, as long as you get plenty of roots. An 8 gallon container or larger will house one plant, comfortably. They will require quite a bit of light. This will mean horticultural lighting. 200-400 watts of light will be sufficient for a 4 foot by 4 foot area, and they prefer the upper end to fruit properly.
They will take quite a bit of time to recover from the transplant, so you will expect any blooms and fruit that are on the plants to drop until they recover.
