Can I grow chilli in a pot inside the house in winter?

Yes, but your plant will not produce at the same rate. I've kept my Habanero chilli plant alive in an outdoor greenhouse (not heated but north facing) but have only harvested a handful of chillis through winter. I grow birdseye chillis in summer & freeze these to use throughout the year - will attempt to keep one plant alive in the greenhouse next winter. Chilli plants are perennials in warm climates.

If you want to use chilli's during the winter months it's best to pickle some of the crop before they finish. This is what I do and have year round supply.

Growing indoors, they will need an even warmth and plenty of light. If they are on a windowsill, watch that they don't get too cold overnight.
