Planting Pepper Plants in Pots for Winter

I have four banana pepper plants and was wondering if I could put them in pots for the winter? They are about three feet tall and still putting out peppers.

Hardiness Zone: 8a

Yes! Absolutely! I grew up with my mother doing that, she'd even save seed, plant, and grow them entirely in the house - they would line the window cill. She would do this for most peppers. Enjoy - Great idea

I have saved seeds from peppers many times with no success after putting them in my garden. This year I saw one pepper next time I looked it had fallen off. My friend had same problem I think next year I will just buy 6 plants. This has been my experience anyway.
