When my chilli plant has fruited do I throw the plant away or does it go on year on year.



You will need to grow a new one for next year.

I would try taking cuttings from the old one before you throw it away. Worth a try.

Cuttings don't often work, but the plants can live for several years, if they don't freeze! The older and woodier the plants get, though, the smaller the chilis get.
