I don't usually wallow in individual plants but outback the peppers are friendly.
These 'perennials' may not be the tastiest morsel in the Capsicum fam but they are reliable croppers offering fruits that are great to cook with.
And the plant lasts a few years...reputably 3-5.
In my patch pepper plants tend to fall over as the fruits form ( & weigh the plant down ) because they don't root securely. But these darlings have held up their end.
I gotta have my peppers all year as they are an essential ingredient in my preferred Mirepoix/Holy Trinity/soffritto.
An essential seed saver.
The best peppers are definitely the cubanelle ( or Italian 'fryers') and these are my work around. They do fry up in olive oil delish.
I also grow the wee mini sweet peppers which are very tasty in the same menu capacity.
