    Peppers require a long warm season to produce fruits, taking from 58 to 100 days to mature. Although grown as an annual throughout most of the country, peppers survive as perennials in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9b, 10 and 11. Ornamental, sweet and hot peppers all require the same conditions for germination and fruit production.
