Aloha!

Most gardeners have to stop harvesting when winter arrives, so every vegetable, whether it's an annual, biannual or perennial, is used as if it were an annual.

In Hawaii, there's no frost to kill plants! (well, except at the top of the mountains! but there's not muhc growing there!)

Do gardeners in Hawaii harvest their tomatoes, peppers, etc. for years until something kills the plant? or is it better to cut off a plant after a certain number of months and start over again? Does the quality or quantity of produce decrease with the age of the plant?

What's your experience?

Thanks!

And while you pepper experts are answering her question, could you give me some advice on growing bell peppers on Oahu using SFG? I have never been successful except once I got a small bell before the plant croaked.
Mahalo for any help you can give me.

Howzit!

I let my Roma tomato plant grow for a year. The fruits got a little smaller so I put some compost and the next batch were as big as the first harvest!!!

There was a lot of blossom end rot in first batch of tomatoes. I am so glad I left the plant to continue growing!! All the tomatoes following that batch were perfect....no blossom end rot!!!
