    Just keep an eye on the forecast and when the night time temperatures are dropping into single figures for more than the odd night then I'd move them in then. Obviously if a frost is forecast at any time (even for a single night) bring them in before that. Also depends on what you're growing - rocotos and baccatums can usually tolerate it a bit colder than chinense and annuums (as established plants, not seedlings.)

    Also depends on the position you've got for them and whether you're intending to overwinter them dormant or actively growing.

    Below 6c can be terminal even for one night, however if I am not going to overwinter I leave mine out as the plant diverts all its energy to the fruits, last year in my tunnel I had plants with viable fruit right into November.

    Yes, that's a chocolate hab...( just labelled the photos) in its second year. Did you give me that last year maybe? Not sure now. I would have to look it up!
