I’m a novice who would like to know how many season’s green peppers usually produce pods. And if more than one, do I need to prune like I prune my trees? For whatever help you could offer, thank-you.
Peppers are perennials in non-freezing climates and can last for years. However they lose vigor over the years, producing fewer pods each year. The number of pods depends on so many factors (like, variety, climate, location, wind, etc.) that it is impossible to guess the number of pods. Yes, you should prune them back to half their original size.
