My Sweet cherry chilli wich has over wintered in my sittingroom.window has a total of 15 chilli's on it. Did have 16 but I ate one that had ripened yesterday. Second one is now ripening. If you can I would recommend over wintering a favourite chilli.

@emch I just had mine in a south facing doubke glazed window the radiator is underneath the window. I did also once it started regrouping and put out flowers pollinate them. I didnt feed it untill it started regrouping either.

😂😂👍🏻 I'm growing fruity chillies this year so I'm going to try stuffing them with cheese. I reckon it would work with any mild fruity chillies. I have Red Biquinho and Trinidad Perfume and sweet banana peppers and sweet Romano peppers. 🤤🤤🤤

@ublaszko it should do but you do need a small amount of heat.

Wow! I never thought of trying to overwinter one as a half hardy perennial! Looks really healthy too 👏👍
