Should I just pick any little ones and call it a year, or should I let
them stay on and try to get them to grow some more. I've been
covering the plant w/ a sheet at night. There are still about 20
little peppers on the plant. We haven't had our first frost yet, but
it will be coming anytime. (Tennessee)
Let 'em go for a while, even if a frost knocks the plant down you can
probably pick (and eat) the immature peppers from the corpse. There will
come a time, regardless of frost damage, when it just gets too cold and the
plant will die or go dormant.
