Growing Eggplant, also Aubergine

First time I’ve planted Egg Plant. (Wicking bed) Enjoying the few fruits now. Do I pull the plant up or is it perennial? I’m guessing the cold winter will knock it. I would like to use the spot for winter veg unless it will grow through till next season.

It will produce again next year - maybe not so good as this year. Or plant some new ones next spring and put in some veggies for winter.
